The GitHub page for emacs-racer shows function signatures in company completion results.


My results display "Function" and nothing beyond.

I've searched through customize-group company and can't find any variables that seem to be relevant. How can I achieve the advertised behavior?

I do not believe the problem is with the racer command itself. It works as expected when invoked from the command line, and eldoc-mode displays correct signatures.


This issue occurs if emacs-racer and company-racer are both installed. They are distinct packages and are not compatible. Install only emacs-racer and the function signatures show up as expected.
