bug#39132: 28.0.50; dot-emacs init-file not loaded

Andreas Röhler
Emacs seems not to know "~/.emacs" file anymore. echo $XDG_CONFIG_HOME
reports it empty.

While reading in NEWS

Emacs will still look for init files in their traditional locations if
"$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/emacs" does not exist, but "~/.emacs.d" or
"~/.emacs" does exist, so invoking Emacs with XDG_CONFIG_HOME='/nowhere'
might be useful if your new-location init files are scrambled, or if
you want to force Emacs to ignore files under 'XDG_CONFIG_HOME' for
some other reason.

When evaluating "~/.emacs" by hand all went fine.

Thanks,
Andreas

If XDG_CONFIG_HOME is empty, then emacs defaults to
~/.config/emacs (and currently will create it, although that is soon
to change).

Does ~/.config/emacs exist?

No, doesn't exist. Just ~/.config with a plenty of other stuff.

Then I donʼt understand what's going on. What is your value of
'user-emacs-directory'?

user-emacs-directory is a variable defined in ‘subr.el’.
Its value is "~/.emacs.d/"

   Probably introduced at or before Emacs version 22.1.

Thanks for your care,

Hmm, so emacs should be attempting to load ~/.emacs.d/init.el or
~/.emacs in that case.

Don't see an init.el in emacs.d.

Then I donʼt know what's going on. Does 'strace emacs' give any clues
as to which file(s) Emacs might be trying to read?

My .emacs serves as dispatch. Will send it with privat mail. Maybe you
can spot the reason there.

Thanks again,

Andreas

Now Iʼm confused. I thought you said Emacs wasn't loading .emacs? What
good would me looking at it do?

Was afraid my diagnose might be wrong. If something in .emacs prevents
further loading, how can I be sure it was accessed at all?

Best,

Andreas

By running 'strace emacs' and looking for calls that access .emacs

Okay, got it: Turns out being a typo in my bash-alias. There was a "-q"
where it shouldn't be.

Thanks and sorry for the noise.
