The requirement is to enable multi-te m support for emacs package. Bydefault in Ubuntu 18.04 default emacs coming with v25, but in this version, I'm unable to enable the multi-term support ( for more info - https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/MultiTerm ) .
However I tried to compile the source file for emacs v24 and failed to make during the configure session and got stuck at this point.
Env: Ubuntu 18.04 4.15.0-29-generic /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpthread_nonshared.a(pthread_atfork.oS): In function `__pthread_atfork': /build/glibc-OTsEL5/glibc-2.27/nptl/pthread_atfork.c:51: undefined reference to `__dso_handle' /usr/bin/ld: temacs: hidden symbol `__dso_handle' isn't defined /usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Bad value collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status Makefile:632: recipe for target 'temacs' failed make: *** [temacs] Error 1 make: Leaving directory '/home/test/Downloads/emacs-24.3/src' Makefile:334: recipe for target 'src' failed make: *** [src] Error 2
Even I tested the same in Centos 7 for emacs bydefault coming with v24, in that i can see the multiterm enabled without any issues. But in Ubuntu 18.04 it failed to enable.
Is there any way can I pull the emacs v24 from any third party repository? I even tried so many but no luck.
Please shed me some views, how to proceed further the same in Ubuntu 18.04 or do I need to go back to Ubuntu 16.04 ?
I tried with the default version of emacs v25.2 in 18.04 and followed this one https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/MultiTerm and got error as follows
$cat /home/test/.emacs (require 'multi-term) (setq multi-term-program "/bin/bash")
$ls -l /home/test/.emacs.d/multi-term.el
while retrieving emacs editor, getting error as follows
Warning (initialisation) An error occured while loading '/home/test/.emacs': File error: Cannot open load file, No such a file or directory, multiterm'
Please shed some views how to get rid of this?
