So I can put a line like,
(setq-default global-linum-mode t)
(setq-default electric-par-mode t)
in my init file, and I can check with C-h v that the variables are in fact set to t (they are), but unless I actually M-x them on inside a file, they’re not having any effect. What might be going on?
I’m on an ssh terminal to a Debian Raspberry Pi, if relevant.
