Emacs on Slackware-Current


The menu icons for emacs on Slackware-Current are showing as red x's. Tried running installpkg for emacs again but it didn't help. The version I see on the mirrors is

21/Nov/2008 00:00 27 MB emacs-22.3-i486-2.txz

Anyone know where the icons are?

Still works correctly on Fedora 12.

Are you... current with -current?
The only thing that comes to mind is http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/gtk-...denly-missing/ but this has been fixed long ago.

If you're using KDE, right click on the KDE logo in the Kicker, click on Menu Editor,then Development, then Emacs, then the square in the GUI - that brings up all the icons. Hope that's clear enough.

Curious. Starting from the GUI works but I normally start with a setup script from a rxvt window. From a terminal window the script works as it is supposed to do giving a full functional emacs. Guess I'll have to give up trying to minimize the impact of the user interface on my number crunching.

Why would you? Just open a shell and type
Code:
emacs -nw
.

That really is minimal. Not text menu or icons.

Oh, do you mean the toolbar icons are missing? If so, I've no idea how to fix that. I thought you meant the icon in KDE's main menu.

i'm just wondering if you have also issued a command 'slackpkg install-new' for the upgrade, since the icon-themes in -current is now a separate package.

If you just upgraded 13 to -current with commands 'slackpkg update' 'slackpkg upgrade-all', you will definitely missing the new icon-theme package.

I have installed 13 and see this same problem. i.e. the emacs toolbar icons are red Xs.

Plus if I use emacs -nw, which I do sometimes, the key mapping is different.

alt-shift-< should take me to the top but instead it inserts a 1/4 glyph
other strange things too

with just emacs I don't have those issues.

What do you see in /usr/share/emacs/22.3/etc/images (for Slackware 13)? For -current, it will be in a similar directory, depending upon the specific emacs version there.

The directory has many .xpm files and a README that mentions converting .xpm to .pbm.
Is that what's needed?

I don't believe the conversion is needed, since my toolbar icons in emacs 22.3 are in color.

I've looked at tool-bar.el to see what they are doing, but that is some major elisp-fu. I can't tell where they are looking for the icons.

That's strange, M-shift-< takes me to the top in both emacs and emacs -nw

A few thoughts:
  1. On the keybindings -- I use a special keymap in my terminals (and I boot to runlevel 3). The default, I believe has only one of the alt keys set up as a meta key. I call my custom keymap during startup with the rc.keymap script.
  2. Toolbar icons -- I built Emacs 23.2 from source on Slackware64_13 and noticed that the toolbar has different icons than Emacs 22.3. I know that the defaults are different, but the SlackBuild script in the source for Emacs 23.2 in -current configures it with the GTK toolkit. I suspect that the original poster is either having trouble with the GTK icons or there's a problem with the makefile of the new version of Emacs.

I guess the question is whether or not other people are having the same trouble in -current with Emacs 23.2.
