I am trying to use the elpy python package by putting it in my dotemacs file. But, when I fire up an emacs session and type inside the source code frame ( I don't split any frames ), I get the following messages in sequence with the first one going away very quickly so it's hard to read.
Elpy is trying to create RPC virtualenv /home/markleeds/emacs.d/elpy/rpc-env
error in process sentinel: peculiar error: "exited normally with code 1
Note that these error messages are in many threads on the internet so I'm thinking that someone may have seen it before. I'm so inexperienced with emacs usage ( I always just used it in a very basic way until recently when I started working on modifying it ) that, when I go through the threads with the identical messages, I can't even tell if a solution was found.
If it is a mistake to send this here and I should instead send it to the python stackexchange list, then my apologies and I will do that.
Note that, if I do,
emacs --debug-init sieve.py, I don't get any messages at the bottom until I start typing and then I get the messages above.
The link that I am trying to follow is https://realpython.com/emacs-the-best-python-editor. Thanks for your help and, if I made mistakes in explaining my problem, I'm all ears and apologize in advance.
P.S: I am using ubuntu 20.04, python 2.7.18 and emacs 27.2.
