[resolved]Doom's set up appears to be incomplete


Though my answer as to what happened is left open, the important part is that it’s now working. I removed ~/.emacs.d and ~/.config/emacs and started over. I didn’t removed ~/.config/doom because I didn’t realize it existed. I only noticed because I was scratching my head, wondering why my init.el file survived nuking.

What happened?

Running emacs does not start Doom Emacs, though doom run still does.

As far as I can tell, I don’t have an init.el (It’s in ~/.config/emacs/doom.)

What did you expect to happen?

I expect emacs to produce basically the same effect as doom run.

I was following this video guide in which things just worked. I expected the same.

Steps to reproduce

  1. pacman -S emacs
  2. git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/doomemacs/doomemacs ~/.config/emacs
  3. ~/.config/emacs/bin/doom install
  4. Add ~/.config/emacs/bin to $PATH.
  5. doom sync
  6. emacs

System information

~/.emacsrc does not exist, which seems to be the typical cause.

Neither doom clean && doom build && doom sync -u nor doom doctor resolved the issue.
