[SciPy-user] Python mode in emacs 22 (Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon)
Sun Oct 21 14:31:26 CDT 2007
So, I freely admit that this belongs on some other list, but the Emacs
list people are often mean to me. Maybe because I think python is
better than lisp and I shouldn't have to learn lisp.....
But I am having a problem with python-mode after upgrading to Ubuntu
7.10 Gutsy Gibbon (as predicted). I tried purging python-mode as
dpkg --purge python-mode
but it doesn't seem to have worked. Here is the result of "locate
ryan@am2:~$ locate *python*mode.el
None of those are on my emacs path.
Here is my error message after trying to open a python file from the
command line using
"An error has occurred while loading `/home/ryan/.emacs.elc':
File error: Cannot open load file, python-mode
To ensure normal operation, you should investigate and remove the
cause of the error in your initialization file. Start Emacs with
the `--debug-init' option to view a complete error backtrace.
File mode specification error: (file-error "Cannot open load file"
For information about the GNU Project and its goals, type C-h C-p."
I believe I have commented out all python-mode commands in my .emacs
file. It is attached.
Can anyone help me get python-mode working again? Or do I have to
post to the emacs list?
