Hi Janusz,

Do yourself (and us as GNU AUCTeX maintainers) a favor and skip
distro packages in favor of GNU ELPA.  Debian testing ships Emacs
24.5 which contains the Emacs package manager.

I've got a problem reported earlier for Ubuntu: Emacs doesn't use the  ELPA
version of the package.

Ah, I see.  So I guess you have no root privileges on that system so
that you could simply uninstall that package?  Or ask your friendly
admin to do that for you explaining the problems the distro package has?

I assumed incorrectly that ELPA will overwrite the Debian package. After uninstalling it the situation improved. I mean that auctex works but I have to load it by hand. I guess it's not how it should be. I get also a message

byte-code: Invalid function: TeX-auto-add-type

Moreover I've got a message:

Done (Total of 237 files compiled, 1 failed, 1 skipped in 4 directories)

Hm, AUCTeX alone has not so many files.  So I guess you also installed
other packages.

Yes, I've installed also another one.

Do you want to see more details?

Sure, then we might see which one failed and if it was an auctex file.

I will try to check it myself tomorrow and will report the result.

Best regards
