VM

no conversion of text/html, "display failed: (void-function vm-mime-display-internal-emacs-w3m-text/html" instead

Asked by Michael Schmitz on 2011-01-06

I still have major problems since updating to v8.1.93a. I'd prefer to let "lynx" convert HTML content to plain text instead of using w3m. Therefore I added (got this from http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/ViewMailAndMime)

  (add-to-list 'vm-mime-type-converter-alist
   '("text/html" "text/plain"
     "lynx -force_html -dump -pseudo_inlines -stdin")

to my .vm-file. Now, when I start VM and display a HTML message (header Content-Type: text/html; charset="iso-8859-1"), the message is displayed in raw form and I see the folloing in the message buffer:

  Decoding MIME message... done
  Inline text/html by emacs-w3m display failed: (void-function vm-mime-display-internal-emacs-w3m-text/html)
  Inlining text/html by emacs-w3m...
  Decoding MIME message...
  Decoding MIME message... done
  Decoding MIME message...

What's wrong with my configuration?

The info manual says that "types that cannot be displayed internally
or externally are checked" for conversion. So, please check all your
settings for mime display. The manual guides you through the settings
step by step.
