Download the org tar.gz from here.
If you do not have Emacs installed. Install it using
sudo apt-get install emacs
Make a .emacs file in your home directory (or edit the one your have if
it is already there). Put into it the following lines (adapt to your
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'font-lock-mode) (setq load-path (append '("/home/tapasweni/emacs" "/home/tapasweni/emacs/org.emacs") load-path)) ;;; Org mode (require 'org-install) (require 'org-view-link) (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org$" . org-mode)) (define-key global-map "\C-cl" 'org-store-link) (define-key global-map "\C-ca" 'org-agenda) (add-hook 'org-mode-hook '(lambda () (local-set-key [C-up] 'backward-paragraph) (local-set-key [C-down] 'forward-paragraph))) (add-hook 'org-mode-hook '(lambda () (local-set-key [down-mouse-3] 'org-view-mouse) (local-set-key "\C-ca" 'org-view-mouse))) (setq font-lock-maximum-size 10000000)
Then make a directory called emacs and uncompress the attached tar.gz in
it. You should end up with a directory emacs/org.emacs.
Then when you go to an org mode file, type escape x org-mode. Then type
control c a (not control c control a) on any link. You will get a new
window with the relevant positions in the file.
The extension of your org file will be .org.
Thanks to Julia for helping me with this. 🙂
