I am not able to access many info files. For example, the command
(info "(gnus) Sorting the Summary Buffer") returns
Info file gnus does not exist
So I want to install/configure my info files directory. I am using emacs 24.5.1 on Archlinux.
According to this post I should have my info files located under
export INFOPATH=$INFOPATH:/usr/share/info/emacs-24. But it does not load my info files, and the directory
/usr/share/info/emacs-24 does not exist. I notice, however, that I have numerous
*.info.gz files under, such as the following:
/usr/share/info/flymake.info.gz /usr/share/info/forms.info.gz /usr/share/info/gnus.info.gz /usr/share/info/emacs-gnutls.info.gz /usr/share/info/emacs.info.gz /usr/share/info/emacs-mime.info.gz
The complete file listing is listed here: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/i686/emacs/files/ which includes many more
*.info.gz files under
/usr/share/info/. How can I make these files accessible to my emacs distro? Should I make the directory
/usr/share/info/emacs-24 and unzip the files in there? Or is there an elpa package that I am missing?
Any help would be great.
Interestingly, if I run
M-x dired RET /usr/share/gnus.info.gz, then I can open the info manual. But how can I execute a function like
(info "(gnus) Sorting the Summary Buffer")?
