You need to add the location of library browse-kill-ring.el to your variable load-path. For example, if browse-kill-ring.el is at location /some/directory/browse-kill-ring.el then add this to your init file (~/.emacs): (add-to-list 'load-path "some/directory/browse-kill-ring.el")

The meaning of the report is in the first two lines: Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Cannot open load file" "browse-kill-ring") require(browse-kill-ring) you are trying to load browse-kill-ring and emacs cannot do it. You need to install this package before you can use it.

No you can't get a such scroll bar in emacs, just like vi, pico or nano as well. To have this feature you need to use a text editing environment such as geany, gedit, kate, scite or the simple leafpad.

A special mode of RCS operation, which is mentioned in the Emacs manual (info) in the VC section, could be an option of how to overcome such problems: 32.1.12.2 Options for RCS and SCCS By default, RCS uses locking to coordinate the activities of several users, but there is a mode called "non-strict locking" in which you can check-in changes ...

Actually it's much simpler. You can just do rcs -l to lock it, then try check it back in again. I assume the situation when you asked the question was something like this: $ echo v1 >foo $ ci -u -t-"Test file." foo $ chmod u+w foo $ echo v2 >foo At this point, both ci and co will fail: $ co -l foo foo,v --> foo revision 1.1 (locked) writable ...

Basic Unix commands can be used to achieve the goal. So, actually, it's not a big problem at all. copy/move the modified file out the way of RCS (cp FILE FILE.new, mv FILE FILE.new, or C-x C-w FILE.new in Emacs); check out (and lock) the last revision from RCS (co -l FILE or in Emacs: C-x C-f FILE -- open it again, and C-x v v); overwrite it with the new ...

I cannot replicate your problem. I am using Emacs 24.3.1 which you can get either from emacsformacosx.com or MacPorts. Running Emacs with emacs -nw in Terminal.app (TERM=xterm-256color). Using M-x customize-theme I can select themes with colored backgrounds -- see attached image. It may be that the OS X Emacs /usr/bin/emacs, which is version 22.1.1 in ...

Unfortunately, to my experience at least if you use emacs in terminal you can't really change color schemes, Emacs, contrary to vim, is meant to be used in its own window not in cli.

This solution using dumpkeys, loadkeys and showkey is likely to work in other instances of function keys getting interpreted in unexpected ways by programs running in the Linux Virtual Console. Find the keycode of the key or key combo causing trouble by running: $ sudo showkey ... and hitting the key. In my instance hitting Fn gave the output 143. To ...

Emacs has an --eval option that you can use, details are here. But if you do this a lot, you may not want to start the entire emacs all the time. Instead, you can run the emacs-server and then simply use the much more light-weight emacsclient; see here.
