I tried to run init.el from within my existing emacs, but got an error, so I launched it suppressing my config-files

emacs -q -l d:homeemacs.jsinit.el

 

Basically got the following error (although with a longer trace indicating where it had occured):

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (invalid-function (tool-bar-mode -1))
  ((tool-bar-mode -1) (menu-bar-mode -1) (scroll-bar-mode -1))
  (if window-system ((tool-bar-mode -1) (menu-bar-mode -1) (scroll-bar-mode -1)))
  eval((if window-system ((tool-bar-mode -1) (menu-bar-mode -1) (scroll-bar-mode -1))))
  eval-last-sexp-1(nil)
  eval-last-sexp(nil)
  call-interactively(eval-last-sexp nil nil)

 

The root seems to be THIS snippet that doesn’t like to work from appearance.el

 

(if window-system
    ((tool-bar-mode -1)
     (menu-bar-mode -1)
     (scroll-bar-mode -1)))

 

Now, each of those lines can execute individually, but none of them like to execute in that block.

Why is that?

 

Oh, my elisp-fu is woefully faded.

 

hrm. THIS seems to work:

 

(if window-system
    (progn (tool-bar-mode -1)
           (menu-bar-mode -1)
           (scroll-bar-mode -1)))

 

so. I update that.

 

Now,

set-default-font: Font Inconsolata-12′ is not defined

 

jeebus.

I’m still trying to figure out how I should be using my wiki and my blog – what content goes where?

I’ve been putting a lot more this-is-what-I-did notes into the wiki, and cleaning them up as I redo it/find other/better ways.

I’m going to try putting them HERE in the blog first (in pmwiki-markup), and then clean them up a bit for the wiki.

 

That’s the idea, anyway….

 

This is Part One; read Part Two

 


 

So, I decided to test-install emacs.js

 

NOTE: the installation instructions presume Linux. Because: 1337. Because: Us windows users suck.

Or something like that.

 

NOTE: the notes below are pretty much unedited transcripts of my attempts to get this to work. They are more a reflection on my unfamiliarity with cygwin than they are of the lack of Windows installation docs. Although making this into an ELPA package would solve this problem in one fell swoop.
