I have been working with org mode for some time, and recently installed evil mode and evil org mode via the melpa package tool.
For some reason though I cannot run M-x evil-mode (nor does it come up as an autocomplete suggestion), until I have first run M-x org-evil-mode. This is even the case if I am in fundamental mode, which seems very strange.
I have the following lines in my ~/.emacs which may have something to do with it, though as I said I have the same problem even if I manually switch to fundamental mode.
;;;;org-mode as default ;; Enable org-mode (require 'org) ;; Make org-mode work with file ending in .txt (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.txt$" . org-mode))
I am using GNU Emacs 25.1.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.22.11) of 2017-09-15, modified by Debian.
