Here is init:
;; appointments (require 'appt) (appt-activate t) ; I have also tried (appt-activate 1) here as the appt.el documentation says to ; (setq appt-message-warning-time 1) I have messed around with these variables quite a bit and cannot find anything that works, so they are commented out at the moment. ; (setq appt-display-interval 1)
I have tried many variants of the following formats in the diary file, which is working appropriately in all other regards:
Oct 19, 2016
I am aware that the appt-message-warning-time default is 12 minutes. I have tried changing that and everything else that I can find in the documentation. I am saving the diary file each time. I have tried forcing an appt check. Nothing works.
What am I doing wrong?
I thought Dieter's answer got it, but it didn't.
Evaluating (appt-activate 1) in my init file did prompt Emacs to display the appointment. Speaking of that, I changed (appt-activate t) to (appt-activate 1) per the documentation instructions.
However, unless I manually evaluate the expression, the appointment will not diplay.
I thought Dieter was correct about the white space around the diary file formatting, but documentation for appt-check actually says the following:
Note: the time must be the first thing in the line in the diary for a warning to be issued. The format of the time can be either 24 hour or am/pm. For example:
02/23/89 18:00 Dinner Thursday 11:45am Lunch meeting.
Here is my current init for appointments:
;; appointments (require 'appt) (appt-activate 1) (appt-check 1) (setq appt-message-warning-time 15) (setq appt-display-interval 1)
The above is not working. What am I doing wrong?
