Emacs and dbus

(Lorenzo Bolla) #1

Hi all,

Does anyone know why Emacs is compiled without dbus support? See https://github.com/voidlinux/void-packages/blob/master/srcpkgs/emacs/template

It means that standard “notifications” won’t work.
Has any other Emacs user here experienced this issue?

emacs-gtk2 and -gtk3 are compiled with dbus, so installing either one of those fixes my issues.
I’d like to know why Emacs requires dbus to send an email, though (which is what fails in the --without-dbus version).
