VM

What's "vm-easymenu" and where can I find it?

Asked by Michael Schmitz on 2010-10-20

I just downloaded vm-8.1.93a, installed it but starting VM fails because "vm-easymenu" (required in vm.el) is missing on my system (Fedora Core 10, xemacs-21.5.28). The NEWS file states "easymenu" is used instead of "vm-easymenu" since v8.0.8. What should I do? Patch "vm.el"? Download "vm-easymenu"? Where can I find it?

The two lines referring to vm-easy-menu are redundant. I will remove
them in the next release.

But, if these lines are getting invoked, you must be calling
vm-easy-menu functions from somewhere, either from your .vm file or
some custom code that you have installed. If you set debug-on-error
to t, it should give you a backtrace that can help you track the
problem down.

You can also remove these two lines from the vm.el file and compile
the result. That should also give you an error message saying that
the vm-easy-menu functions are undefined.
