I am having some trouble with that jit-lock message: it does not work in indirect buffer.

I think it is not related with my config files in .emacs because I tried the function without loading my .emacs and the issue persists.

So, I need a direction about what to do and what information should I provide you in order for helping me to fix that issue that's stopping me from using the org-goto function.

Please, note I understand very little about lisp-emacs, I usually grab some snippets from internet. That's why I am not very sure about what information should I provide.

    No need to know about Lisp: just provide a step-by-step description of how you end up getting that message. From what you write about all I know is that org-goto is somehow involved, but it's pretty fuzzy.

    If you could provide a recipe for recreating the issue, starting from running emacs -Q, that should be sufficient for people to help figure out what's going on.

1 Answer 1


If someone came to the same issue (or related), know that I solved it by not loading twice org from different packages (Elpa and Melpa) in Emacs.

    Please accept your own answer. That prevents the question to pop up in the list again and again.
