Webjump Wikipedia With W3-emacs.el

I tried to webjump to wikipedia and using w3-emacs there were no buttons or links just text.

Is there a package that I have to install to be able to use wikipedia?

I tried elinks as browse-url but there was no sound in elinks.

Thanks,

emacspeak-bmk-mgr vanished?


I see that emacspeak-bmk-mgr has been moved to the obsolete directory. What are
people using these days for managing web bookmarks? I looked at org-mode, but
found it less useful/convenient 'out of the box' than bmk-mgr.

Raman FYI, there is still a reference to emacspeak-bmk-mgr in emacspeak.el
which probably should be removed. You cannot currently run emacpseak and load
bmk-mgr as it tries to load emacpseak-bmk-mgr.el.

Not sure about others, save for Dr. Ramen (who uses org mode), but I use
org-mode like so:

(setq org-remember-templates
      '(("Bookmark" ?b "* %a %^g %!" "~/bookmarks.org" "Main")
        ("CoffeeTips" ?c "* %?%:subject \n\n %i" "~/coffee-tips.org")
        ("Tasks" ?t "* TODO %?\n  %u" "~/todo.org" "Tasks")
        ("Notes" ?n "* %u %?" "~/notes.org" "Notes")
        ))

(defun rdc-bookmark ()
  "shortcut for storing bookmarks with org-remember"
  (interactive)
  (org-remember nil "b")
  ;; we want to save the bookmarks file.  
  (org-save-all-org-buffers))

Which gives you a bookmark file that looks like this:

** Page 1 Title                                 :tag1:tag2:tag3:
** Page 2 Title                                 :tag1:tag2:tag3:
** Page 3 Title                                 :tag1:tag2:tag3:

Then you use C-c C-o to open bookmarks and C-c \ to search for a tag.
I'm sure there are other commands to use but I've not needed them.

I'm actually the one who requested the feature allowing the w3 page
title to be passed.

HTH,
rdc

Re: emacspeak-bmk-mgr vanished?


Hi Robert,

thanks, that is a very similar setup to what I have - I find it a bit more
'clunky' than bmk-mgr, especially with respect to managing large numbers of
bookmarks. I can customize it further and will be able to customize it to
better suit my needs, I just wanted to avoid having to do that right now. While
we can do almost anything with emacs, finding the time to write and maintain
custom extensions can be problematic. I also have to now convert my existing
bookmarks file to org format, which is straight-forward, but again, need to
find the time. 

For now, I've restored emacspeak-bmk-mgr as this will at least let me run
bmk-mgr and access my bookmarks. The rest will go into my growing org-mode todo
list!

emacspeak-bmk-mgr vanished?

If at least one  or more of you are using bmk-mgr, then it's easy
enough to restore suport for it, I'll do that; let's not waste
time debating the strengths of org-mode here.

For myself, I'm uing org-capture -- which is a rewrite of
remember for org.

emacspeak-bmk-mgr vanished?

Hi Raman,

Don't rush to restore it if I'm the only user! The bmk-mgr package is not
getting any active development and I suspect it won't be too long before it
suffers from bit rot. I can manage restoring it for my own use until I find the
time to convert to org (which I'm already using for other things, including the
org-capture functionality). 

I really just wanted to find out what others are using and to flag there is
still a reference to the emacspeak-bmk-mgr file int he emacspeak.el file, which
causes an error if you happen to load bmk-mgr. Removing this reference would
allow bmk-mgr to still be run without emacspeak support.

Emacspeak with gmail

I saw Dr. Raman's blog entry about gmail here:
http://emacspeak.blogspot.com/2007/08/emacspeak-and-gmail.html

I edited the glogin.xml file and changed Dr. Raman's email to my own
email and used emacspeak using C-e ? / glogin.xml to access that
template.

However when I enter my password and press the SUBMIT form button, I
am taken to the google "my account" settings instead of the gmail
folder.

I read on the page referenced above:

Emacs/W3 note: Note that signing in to GMail from the main GMail
screen defeats W3. An easy work-around, and something that is more
efficient anyway is to use the glogin.xml form found in Emacspeak ---
use C-e ?/ in Emacspeak to pick that form. Once you're signed in to
Google, you can:

    * Open your inbox
    * Perform searches to find the message you want

I don't know what I must do after I use the glogin.xml form.

Any help would be, of course, very helpful, I once again and lost when
I get to the "ACCOUNT SETTINGS" page and don't even know how to go
backwards to the glogin.xml form.

I also don't understand why if I use M-x webjump google gmail RETURN
and then click on the gmail link, it according to what I understand
from the above, it defeats W3?  I have changed the setting so that my
browser in emacs is w3.

Again, thanks in advance for any help.

Best wishes,

David

Emacspeak with gmail

You're correct in that using the glogin.xml in emacspeak ends up
not logging in successfully. On the positive side,
the login page you get from Google no longer defeats emacs/W.

Just invoke the URL  template "gmail inbox" and if not signed in,
it'll get you a login page first.

Note: after you sign in, re-invoke URL  template "gmail inbox"
