Been playing with elfeed on Emacs 26.1 on
buster and it keeps crashing. I think for font related reasons. So lets follow the Emacs Wiki Instructions to upgrade to
emacs-snapshots and see if that helps.
Add the snap shot repository.
Make sure you have the tools installed so that apt can do it's internet thing.
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo apt-get update
Add the signing key:
wget -q http://emacs.ganneff.de/apt.key -O- | sudo apt-key add
And add the packages to your local index. Note that I'm specifically
buster here so update that if you need do.
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://emacs.ganneff.de/ buster main" sudo apt-get update
Remove the old emacs
I ran into a bunch of problems with the old emacs being installed at
the same time, and it borked
dpkg for a bit. So first lets remove
sudo apt remove emacs-bin-common emacs-gtk
Add the new one
Pretty straightforward here.
sudo apt-get install emacs-snapshot sudo update-alternatives --config emacsclient
Fix that icon
The snapshot build has a svg icon, which the Chromebook doesn't seem to like. So lets fix that up.
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/applications/ cp /usr/share/application/emacs-snapshot.desktop ~/.local/share/applications
And then edit
put the Icon to the final image place, in my case
It took a while for the changes to take but after a reboot it works great.
Start it up
Crositini will eventually update the shelf but it will take a little time.
So far, no issues and no crashes!
