I’m in the process of switching to NixOS, and started porting my config. I decided to go with
home-manager and I’m more or less following the recommendations found on this blog. However, I’m hitting a wall with emacs, for which many plugins are broken. Here is my current config and here is what I see on startup:
Loading /nix/store/gd16zhzic956appadcj80sf18an9h5d7-emacs-26.3/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.el (source)...done Loading /home/corentin/.emacs.d/custom.el (source)... Loading /home/corentin/.emacs.d/custom.el (source)...done Key Chord mode on [Treemacs] Warning: couldn’t find hl-line-mode’s background color for icons, falling back on unspecified-bg. [Treemacs] Python3 not found, advanced git-mode and directory flattening features will be disabled. Error (use-package): auto-dim-other-buffers/:init: Symbol’s function definition is void: auto-dim-other-buffers-mode Error (use-package): company/:catch: Symbol’s function definition is void: company-tng-configure-default Error (use-package): projectile/:init: Symbol’s function definition is void: projectile-mode Error (use-package): flycheck/:init: Symbol’s function definition is void: global-flycheck-mode
I’m using the emacs overlay project to install the plugins, since I’ve seen it being recommended.
Does anyone know why these plugins are broken for me? I have also tries not using the emacs overlay, and install everything from MELPA (this is what I do on my non-NixOS machines) but most plugins failed to install
