Adding GNU/Emacs Info to Debian-based Systems
For reasons explained here, the standard documentation
of GNU/Emacs does not ship alongside the application itself
in Debian-based systems without use of the
non-free repositories. Those
of us wishing to have the in-depth documentation that typically ships with GNU/Emacs will need to
apt how to get it. The process is largely identical to that described in my previous post
where I enabled bluetooth on my Librem 14. In fact, I only
added one more
Package stanza as follows:
Package: emacs-common-non-dfsg Pin: origin ftp.debian.org Pin-Priority: 501
With this added all that was left was an
apt update and an
apt install emacs-common-non-dfsg.
My GNU/Emacs now contains the documentation it was supposed to have to begin with.
