I frequently use emacs ess functions. Specifically, I use r-mode and run R in emacs. However, quite suddenly, emacs is no longer offering ess options. r-mode is no longer an option in emacs nor is R.
I tried purging ess and emacs (
aptitude --purge remove emacs ess) and even removed my .emacs file and .emacs.d folder - to no avail.
I'm using Debian (Jessie). emacs23 was installed. In trying to get this to work, I installed emacs24, and then even xemacs (on the off chance). Still no success. I was having a problem with el-get -- so I purged and reinstalled related packages. Oddly enough, reinstalling
dictionaries-common was some help there (see https://askubuntu.com/questions/295234/broken-emacs-installation)- but still no luck with emacs and ess.
There are no error messages installing, uninstalling, or reinstalling emacs, ess, or r.
How can I amend this?
