I just installed Emacs 24 (emacs24 24.1+1-2ubuntu3) in Ubuntu 12.04 but it does not seem to work with Auctex (the current version is 11.86-2ubuntu2). My .emacs file contains a line loading Auctex, so when starting the editor for the first time I received an error it cannot find auctex.el. Indeed /usr/share/emacs/24.1/site-lisp does not contain any trace of auctex. I thought it could be an issue with auctex being installed before emacs 24, so I reinstalled it. The installation log reads as follows:
Setting up auctex (11.86-2ubuntu2) ... Install auctex for emacs Install auctex for emacs23 install/auctex: Setting up for emacs23 (log file: /usr/share/emacs23/site-lisp/auctex//CompilationLog)... done. update-auctex-elisp: Further output will appear in: /var/log/auctex-emacs23.log. Install auctex for emacs24 install/auctex: Ignoring emacsen flavor: "emacs24".
Is the current version of auctex incompatible with emacs24? Alternatively, is there a way to get around this issue?
