I installed Mint 19 last Dec, and added Emacs via apt install. When I start Emacs, I get the error
Code: Select all
Error running timer ‘blink-cursor-start’: (wrong-type-argument listp 0.5) setq: Wrong type argument: listp, 0.7 [5 times]
repeated again and again, and the editor is unusable. I do not have any .emacs file (I do have one, but it's not installed yet). I raised this at https://emacs.stackexchange.com/questio ... rsor-start
but while that identified a
) how to start Emacs with no features on (use -Q); and b
) one possible file related to the error (frame.el), the only concrete suggestion has been to compile from scratch, which is not an option.
I just installed Mint 19 on a new system, and the identical problem occurs.
Is any other Mint 19 user using Emacs, and if so, how?
