Dear emacs-w3m team;
I like your work very much, but I have a problem with either w3m or
emacs-w3m, not sure which as of today. But perhaps you have knowledge
of this problem and have already a solution.
I have installed w3m and emacs-w3m on my macbook operating under
macosx 10.5.4 and as you might already know, apple already installed a
carbon version of Emacs-22.1 with Leopard, which is what I'm using. I
have however, separately installed the Emacs.app from apple's open-
source tarball with a symbolic link to the original carbon
installation as follows: ln -s /usr/bin/emacs -> /Applications/
Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs. I can open emacs either from
Terminal.app or GUI version with double-click on Emacs.app icon.
When I use w3m from Emacs under Terminal.app I have no difficulties
that I am aware of. When I use Emacs launched from GUI Emacs.app I
get the following error message when Emacs.app is loading w3m:
"Image conversion failed (code `1')" but application otherwise seems
to work, without image conversion.
I have ImageMagick installed with "convert" installed in /usr/local/
bin; w3m installed with prefix=/usr/local; and emacs-w3m installed
in /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp. in my dot.emacs file I have the
;; w3m settings
(add-to-list 'load-path "/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/w3m")
(add-to-list 'exec-path "/usr/local/bin")
If you have prior knowledge of this problem or otherwise have useful
solutions to this problem I would appreciate your generous reply.
Thank you very much for your consideration,
