Regarding the latex issue, you need to have a version of Latex installed on your machine in order to be able to utilize LaTeX within Emacs to export PDFs.

On Linux machines, this is often labeled 'texlive' in your distribution's package manager, ex on a Debian or Ubuntu based Linux distribution: sudo apt install texlive

Several things around my mind. Pick one if you like, and I will try to explain it better.

- when using ediff, if there is an image near the text which has differences, it works wrong. Like if the image wouldn't allow ediff to scroll and show the difference. I just see the image, stationary, while jumping to the next difference.

- I have started to read Chassell's. Introduction... to Emacs Lisp. But my ideas grow much much faster than my reading. I even feel I won't be able to implement simple ideas in years. Example: I would like that every time "I see" a heading with a special TODO state, this heading is expanded. Should I keep reading the book to materialize this little idea or should I take different actions?

- when I export to latex, I get an error and no document is produced. Sorry I can't share here the error, since I am writing from the mobile, but it seems related to xelatex. Buuut, if I take the .tex produced file and I open it with an external latex editor, the document is compiled into a decent PDF. How could orgmode generate a valid tex document but not to be able to produce its PDF?

- some more bugs I found, I should share from the PC.

- oh, wait. I have an old PC I don't use much (2008 AD - Core 2 Duo). I was thinking about using it just for orgmode. Would you recommend me an OS?

Thanks for being there
