CentOS 7.x .emacs file

For CentOS 7.x use following .emacs file after:

  • Fully update emacs
yum -y install emacs
  • If erlang is not desired then comment erlang related lines. If it is desired then install erlang using:
yum -y install erlang
yum -y install yaws
  • For org-export-to-pdf install
yum -y install texlive texlive-wrapfig #Very large package set


  • The first start of emacs after using this file may take some time as many packages will get downloaded and compiled.
