I have been messing with some old Python files that I wrote ages ago (a couple of which were mentioned in a post a couple of days ago about ray tracing) – of course I was using Emacs. I’ve been getting this error since I configured Emacs for Python using the .emacs file in my home directory. Every time I open Emacs, I get a buffer telling me that it can’t load the Yasnippets_bundle.el file. I have no idea why. I went back to this website and tried to figure out where I’d gone wrong, but I think I’m going to have to just scrap my .emacs file (but save it, of course!) and start from scratch. There’s a whole slew of code in my .emacs file that I copied from someone else on the web. I certainly don’t understand it all, so it’s really no wonder that I can’t figure out why it’s not working!
Some websites that might help me out:
I guess I’m overlapping somewhat with an earlier post, but I figured it can’t hurt to have things listed twice…Anyway, I hadn’t listed the Emacs Python Wiki before, and I think it looks helpful.
Note: I had also forgotten to type Alt+x eval-buffer - I guess this must mean evaluating the buffer, but I don’t know why I need to run this. I should probably figure that out. I did try typing it as the Yasnippets instructions indicate, but it didn’t make the error message go away.
Good news: trying to solve the Yasnippets problem I had a chance to practice some Emacs and Bash commands – searching, moving around in a file, switching between buffers, etc…
Bad news: there is a Yasnippets problem.
Conclusion: Fixing my Emacs/Python issues is on my list.
