tdoe -- M-x toggle-debug-on-error RET, reproduce the problem, then <pastebin> the backtrace (or study it yourself)

wasamasa: i'm still debating. i use the readline bindings alot, which cohere with emacs.
blaenk
one thing that surprised me when I switched to emacs was that c-u didn't do what it does in readline (afaik)
parsnip
oh yeah, seafair weekend (jet goes over home)
blaenk
but yeah I wonder if it's something special about help mode or something
wasamasa
I've heard help-mode reinvents buffers
if that's not special, then I dunno
blaenk
yeah I even did (evil-normal-state-p) and it gave nil
yeah (evil-motion-state-p) gives t
in a help buffer

offby1, offbyone: ping
         

xid
labels are the names of buffers? assuming that's correct, please suggest a command or lisp plugin to display a selection of open buffer labels on a single line?
certain i figured this out the other day in the tutorial but i am drawing a blank
scottj
Isn't there a dired details hiding mode that replaces the details with a string like -------- or something? The built-in dired-hide-details-mode appears to have some issues with wdired so I wanted to try the alternative.
blaenk
wasamasa: yeah your method of doing it fixes the help buffer being in motion state
you should push this upstream
xid
any suggestions for where i can find a long init file with pointers for popular usage options?
blaenk
you just have to do (setq evil-emacs-state-modes '(help-mode))
xid: wasamasa's, and others
xid
cool
wasamasa
it's an init.org FWIW
xid
sounds nice
thanks

is there an emacs variable that determines the 'current' shift width? like I set my shift-width to 4, but in emacs lisp I'm indenting by 2 spaces sometimes, and emacs is somehow able to detect that
so I'm wondering if there's a way I can get that information, cause I'd like to set evil-shift-width to it
xid
must be a function to check variable values
isn't it eval()?
or no
that wouldn't be right
anyone? bueller?
ham-peas
...just evaluate the variable
blaenk
to check variable values? you can check in C-h v
ham-peas
or
blaenk
and that
xid
right, programmmitcaly
ham-peas
M-: variable-name
blaenk
yeah you just evaluate the variable, `variable-name`
xid
i was asking on your behalf, blaenk
         

blaenk
oh nah, that's not what I was asking, thanks though
python476
back
still no one to enlighten me in resetting registers ?
It's funny how keyboard macros are interactive turing machines ~_~;
xid
python476: sorry if this sounds obvious, but have you tried C-h C register?
scottj
python476: I looked in register.el and didn't see anything built-in. Maybe fiddle with register-alist
xid
don't mind me, that's the wrong command anyway
surprised to find nothing about resetting in C-a register
er C-h a register
python476
xid: erf, I was confused, and the answer was no anyway
Still not 100% aware of all the C-h .. mappings
thanks scottj too btw

Can somebody identify the color scheme used here? http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_kGFGcbwevHE/S6SyadxiEGI/AAAAAAAAAfQ/BkUJ-ujYICU/s1600-h/bufpos.png

python476
yeah it seems I'll have to write my own oneliner to clear it
Dpkv: close to http://emacsthemes.caisah.info/monochrome-theme/
Dpkv
python476: yeah
blaenk
anyone know how to use use-package to require the package only after another package has been loaded
I see it has a :requires keyword but it seems like that's to only use that package if that feature already exists
not to wait for it
should I just wrap the use-package in a with-eval-after-load?
atmc
blaenk: there is also :ensure
blaenk
thanks atmc will take a look
I thought :ensure was to make sure it was installed
:ensure t installsthe package if it already wasnt
and :ensure something installs something
for when package name differs from feature name
atmc
hm
not an expert :D
blaenk
hahaha no worries
triogenes
is there something to add to a defmacro to get the proper face highlighting?
for example, use-package has a face that a regular defun has (even though its a macro), but my custom defmacro doesn't have that face
holomorph
future emacs highlights macros and special forms, idk how it was implemented though
aidalgol
wgreenhouse: (re)ping
blaenk
even though I'm doing (propertize "\xf008" 'face '(:family "github-octicons")) it keeps showing it using the FontAwesome family, it seems
the thing is I see it show up correctly for a split second
and then change to another symbol
n1cky
wondering if there's some workaround I can do here.
holomorph
most themes aren't written to handle smaller color palettes. it's doable, most theme authors just don't do it
n1cky
i have a 256 color terminal, and xterm-256color set to TERM
holomorph
n1cky: the default face in the builtin "tango-dark" has an example of how this is done
n1cky
holomorph: thank you.

why don't they make 100gb SSD and put 120gb in it... now they make 120gb SSD and tell you "keep 20% empty because otherwise performance is going to be sh*t".
in other news, I lost about 380 gigs of data today xD All of which was tripple backed up... that controler was fu*ked as hell
IbrahimA: Hmm... interesting
SSDs are really interesting from the algorithmic pow
I'd like to leanr more about it, too bad it's all topsecret
slugobers
Fuco
sbrg: yea... it's really not worth it to not back up... at least the really important stuff
I made the mistake of not making offline copies
get an USB drive, bury it somewhere
sbrg
all my important sh*t is in the cloud, thankfully
Fuco
I don't really trust that either :D
wasamasa
hehehe: https://github.com/doublep/logview/blob/master/logview.el#L1191-L1195
sbrg
Fuco: yeah, it's not perfect. I'm using dropbox because I've been too lazy to find a better solution, but since dropbox is pretty big, I'm somewhat confident that even if they were to go under, I'd be able to retrieve my data before everything gets shut down permanently
linux_dream
dropbox gives me 50 GB for free. but i discovered that it was just a promotion that ends this october...
i have over 23 GB on dropbox
google drive is too small for me to make the switch. so I'll lose my online back up
jcmdln
linux_dream: there are alternatives such as mediafire or mega, though I wouldn't trust them personally
