Package emacs-x11 depends on package dbus-x11 and should declare this,
but apparently does not.
Please change package emacs-x11 so that it declares its dependency on
When doing a fresh install of Cygwin 64bit, I selected xlaunch,
"emacs-x11" and a few other packages and letÂthe dependency
satisfaction mechanism do its thing.
This resulted in a working X Server and XTerm, and
I could start emacs without X (option -nw).
However, trying to start Emacs for an Xterm without -nw
yields this output (and no Emacs window):
process 7588: D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read machine uuid:\
Failed to open "/etc/machine-id": No such file or directory
See the manual page for dbus-uuidgen to correct this issue.
D-Bus not compiled with backtrace support so unable to print a backtrace
Fatal error 6: AbortedAborted (core dumped)
Trying this did not work because the program was missing:
dbus-uuidgen > /etc/machine-id
-bash: dbus-uuidgen: command not found
Installing package dbus-x11 helped, Emacs starts now. (Yay! :-)
