Let's lance a boil and purge it
ryouma
zacts: some branch that does not allow true parallelism or much else that i would find useful, apparently :/
tali713
for example you could bind that key sequence to `org-insert-link'
guile-emacs solves the problem of people wanting guile-emacs.
ryouma
pseudomyne: org-insert-link-global
pseudomyne: there is also a mode to nicely show links in non-org modes
pseudomyne
ryouma: interesting, which one ?
tali713: let me dig that
zacts
oh I see
ijp
,sh*t-#emacs-says
fsbot
weak typing is where the compiler would rather do something idiotic than declare a type error
offby1
rudybot: oatmeal-raisin versus chocolate chip
         

rudybot
*offby1: if this was the old tom baker days it would have been fish and chip
offby1
rudybot: yeah, but it's not; these days it's all madelines and no Chips Ahoy
rudybot
*offby1: ooh, madelines with sherbet
turbofail
jedi mind tricks won't work on a strongly typed compiler
offby1
rudybot: OK, I'll grant that's a nice combination. But I miss my chipmonster
rudybot
*offby1: fsvo grant.
turbofail
ugh. my sleeping schedule is totally hosed now
Fuco
stay awake 36 more hours to reset
works every time, sometimes
turbofail
hm
Fuco
but... the longest I went without sleep was 43 hours, it was hellish, so I can't say it's the best option
turbofail
yeah it doesn't sound great
maybe i'll just fly east and stay there for a while
ijp
Fuco: doing that at the moment
of course, half the time you fall asleep anyway and need to try again the next day
tmtwd
can I select a block of text and remove 2 spaces at the beginning of all lines?
The-Gladiator
with evil mode that is simple, do ctrl-v select the exact region and hit x
ctrl-v is for block selection -> motion as per choice > and x is for action
tmtwd
im not in evil
The-Gladiator
you can do that in inbuilt viper mode also tmtwd I guess
in plain emacs, it looks you need region-rectangle
courtsey stackoverflow, start selection like usual with C-spc, then kill region with C-x r k and paste/yank killed block with C-x r
is there a way to control how cursor appears in the inactive window? it usually comes as an empty box - can I control this?
npr
tmtwd: C-u -2 C-x TAB might work for you?
turbofail
The-Gladiator: see variables cursor-type and cursor-in-non-selected-windows
or default-cursor-type and default-cursor-in-nonselected-windows
actually forget the default variables, those are obsolete
The-Gladiator
thanks turbofail that seems like a good lead, is it something that can be controlled at xresources level btw or is it just emacs thing
turbofail
it's an emacs thing
         

The-Gladiator
thanks, makes sense
turbofail
i think, anyway
wasamasa
it should be as there are customizables for it
The-Gladiator
ok thanks I will check that, the empty box doesn't look right
wasamasa
what do you suggest instead?
lol, the docstring of `visible-cursor'
The-Gladiator
thats slightly tricky for me but maybe underscore is better
wasamasa
,dv cursor-type
fsbot
Cursor to use when this buffer is in the selected window.
Values are interpreted as follows:
t use the cursor specified for the frame
nil don't display a cursor
box display a filled box cursor
hollow display a hollow box cursor ..[Type ,more]
wasamasa
,more
fsbot
bar display a vertical bar cursor with default width
(bar . WIDTH) display a vertical bar cursor with width WIDTH
hbar display a horizontal bar cursor with default height
(hbar . HEIGHT) display a horizontal bar cursor with height HEIGHT ..[Type ,more]
wasamasa
,more
fsbot
ANYTHING ELSE display a hollow box cursor
When the buffer is displayed in a non-selected window, the
cursor's appearance is instead controlled by the variable
`cursor-in-non-selected-windows'.
You can customize this variable.
The-Gladiator
cool wasamasa :-) btw i am new to emacs, how do I access docstrings? is it same as help
wasamasa
yes
The-Gladiator
nice
wasamasa
F1 v/f
The-Gladiator
okay
wasamasa
and F1 F1 if you forget them
The-Gladiator
alright
dokma
just started emacs for the first time... trying to change theme
added this (add-to-list 'custom-theme-load-path "~/.emacs.d/themes") to ~/.emacs
and cloned https://github.com/jimeh/tomorrow-night-paradise-theme.el into ~/.emacs.d/themes
but now can't load it with M x load-theme
holomorph
because you didn't add the subdirectory to the custom-theme-load-path
dokma
inside ~/.emacs.d/themes I have the file tomorrow-night-paradise-theme.el
is that correct?
pardon, that's a directory
The-Gladiator
it should be at root level I guess
scottj
dokma: in your add-to-list line, I think you need themes/tomororw-night...theme.el/"
dokma
ohh...
so the .el FILES should be directly inside the custom-theme-load-path
ok let me try
roxlu
hey!
dokma
works
roxlu
I just installed emacs on my windows with a high def screen, but the text in the editor is all fuzzy
scottj
dokma: that's what step #1 in readme means.
roxlu
Anyone who knows how and if this can be solved?
scottj
dokma: I can see how it could be confusing. another thing you could have done is C-h v custom-theme-load-path that says "List of directories to search for custom theme files...Each theme file is named THEME-theme.el..."
dokma
great, thanks
zenspider
does anyone here understand the repercussions of the latest magit (1.4.x) warnings about auto-revert?
and/or where it's actually hooked in?
dokma
this doesn't work (load-theme 'tomorrow-night-paradise-theme.el) neither does this (load-theme 'tomorrow-night-paradise-theme)
Sonderblade
zenspider: they are benign. if you change branch magit updates the affected open files which is good
dokma
does load-theme require the full path even though I just specified theme folder?
Sonderblade
roxlu: lower the resolution and see if it gets crisper
escondida
dokma: Did you evaluate the path update?
