What do you have as `gnus-init-file'? Do you really
have ~/.gnus.el and not plain ~/.gnus?

It says in the help - 

    If a file with the `.el' or `.elc' suffixes
    exists, it will be read instead.

- so make sure there isn't any interference from other
files.

If you got that right, it gets worse. I don't have

When does gnus read .gnus.el variables

Hi,

this could be more of an elisp question rather than a gnus question, but
there it goes:

Once I have gnus up and running, I want to modify my nnimap-split-fancy
variable.  Therefore, I evaluate a sexp with the new values, and change
.gnus.el accordingly for future sessions.  All works ok.

When I quit gnus *without quitting* emacs, and then restart gnus again,
nnimap-split-fancy stays with its initial value.  Maybe it is no
surprise that it is not reading .gnus.el again, but I wonder why my
on-the-fly settings were also dropped.

Any chance of setting this variable without having to restart emacs?

Thanks,

Displaying Images in HTML Mail


Can anyone point me in the right direction for configuring Gnus to
display images in HTML mail?

Running Gnus v5.13 as shipped with Emacs 24.4.  EWW renders the HTML in
the Message buffer fine but loads no images. If I go to a URL outside of
Gnus using EWW it renders images fine.  I have set gnus-inhibit-images
to nil in my Gnus config and yet I still have no images showing in the
Gnus message buffer for an HTML mail.

I have yet to find the relevant configuration for this so I thought I
would ask and see if anyone knew.

Any help appreciated, thank you.

Yes, it did, and I thank you. Not am I now in flymode without having
started it manually, but the problem of not finding american-huge file
also disappeared.

Check for new news g hangs gnus

I installed gnus with ELPA for emacs 24. It worked properly on old
hardware, but a similar setup on new hardware hangs when I check for new
news by typing "g". What is different is the overall setup.

I have a key in fluxbox that calls ~/scripts/emacs-gnus executable
script. This script has this line pointing to its init file:

   emacs -q -l /home/haines/.emacs.d/elisp/gnus.el

The basic change from the working system was to relocate ~/.emacs-gnus
to ~/.emacs.d/elisp/emacs-gnus. Other changes I do not believe are
relevant.

When the window comes up to display the subscribed news groups and the
number of new messagse in them, the menu bar provides such things as
Gnus, Groups, Group. In the first is the command g to check for new
news. In my current setup, when I type g, it causes gnus to hang.

flyspell in messages

I'm using gnus to read newsgroups, and I would like to have flyspell run
automatically whenever I write a message in reply to a posting. At
present, the mode bar says: (Message MML Abbrev Fill Narrow). Does this
mean I'm in the Message group?

I try this in the init file for gnus:

  (dolist (hook '(Message-mode-hook))
      (add-hook hook (lambda () (flyspell-mode 1))))

Not only does this not open flyspell automatically, but when I try to
open flyspell manually (M-x flyspell-mode) I get an error that
/usr/lib/aspell/american-huge cannot be opened". Although I have
iamerican-huge and wamerican-huge installed, there is no such
american-huge file.

I would like to be in flyspell minor mode whenever I reply to a
newsgroup without having to remember to start it manually.

Using IMAP as POP, fetching from multiple folders?

  Hi.

I am using IMAP-as-POP (i.e. downloading all new emails via IMAP and
handling them locally in nnml). This suits me well.

After getting a phone that handles email, I need to do some server side
splitting - but I want to keep my IMAP-as-POP setup.

Looking at the manual for Mail Sources under "imap", I find:

  ":mailbox

      The name of the mailbox to get mail from. The default is ‘INBOX’
      which normally is the mailbox which receives incoming mail."

Is it possible to specify multiple mailboxes here? If so: What is the
syntax?

(I tried ("INBOX" "Test") and "INBOX Test", neither of which
worked; I got errors like this:

  "Mail source (imap :server MAILSERVER :stream ssl :fetchflag \Seen :mailbox (Inbox Test)) error (stringp)."

  "Mail source (imap :server MAILSERVER :stream ssl :fetchflag \Seen :mailbox Inbox Test) error (IMAP
error: "Inbox Test" doesn't exist.)."
).

  Best regards,

    Adam, keeping email old school since the 90s.

sound distortion

I installed on Debian Wheezy (3.2.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian
3.2.65-1 i686 GNU/Linux) an Asus Xonar DS PCI Express 7.1. It
played beautifully out of the box, but next day it played with
much distortion. I believe the only thing I did after the initial
success was to remove a line in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa/alsa-base.config
with which I tried to 
correct an old card priority problem.

Sound is hopeless distorted. When I play a CD disk with
alsaplayer the sound stutters: sometimes sound amplitude seems
modulated by a sinewave at about 8Hz/sec and sometimes it
stutters or is silent. What I find significant is that when
alsaplayer is stopped, the stuttering continues for a second or
two longer. Does this suggest feedback?

When I play a .wav file with aplay, the sound is a screech. I
installed pulseaudio and it produced no sound at all and so
removed it. Nevertheless pulse shows up:

  $ aplay -L
  null
      Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
  pulse
      PulseAudio Sound Server
  default:CARD=DX
      Xonar DX, Multichannel

Sudden nnml problem

In the course of the morning, my gnus (v5.13) stopped reading nnml
files. When I logged on it read what was there, I released some
false-positive spam from the university's web-interface and it read
that, but when more mail arrived and fetchmail put it in the
xxx.mailinglist files, it began to ignore it.

Restarting gnus has no effect
Restarting emacs has no effect
Deleting the group and re-subscribing has no effect (except forgetting
what is read and ticked :-( )

It throws no errors. 

Any ideas re how to debug?

Brendan

I thought this worked, but it turned out to apply only to the current
buffer because it was not saved. This reason is that all my emacs
sessions use -q and define their own init files.

What I need is a string in the init files that defines the
highlight/transient background. Could you be of help here?
