Dear David, Mose


Apologies for not getting back to you regards confirming whether your instruction to install AUCTeX using the Emacs package manager was successful.


Well I am happy to say that it was successful and everything is working perfectly.  Thank you very much for your help and also for the work you do maintaining AUCTeX.


Referring specifically to the installation instructions,  indeed it does say to install AUCTeX using the Emacs package manager in the docs but unfortunately I found the legacy installation instructions first that were linked in my first email. 


Perhaps as part of the old installation instructions you could include a disclaimer that the instructions are out of date and perhaps a link to the relevant current instructions.


This may be helpful for other emacs amateurs like myself 😊



Thanks again for the info!

Actually this is already explained in the installation instructions:"">
Other installation procedures are left there for reference (maybe it's
a bad idea?), but there is almost never a good reason to use anything
else besides ELPA to install AUCTeX.
