I’m an IT worker with the University of Michigan. I have a professor who has a fairly detailed .emacs file that he’s worked with for years. I recently built him a VM for his laptop. He would like the .emacs file from his desktop imported to his laptop VM. Every time I replace the original .emacs file contents with his original I get the following error (upon opening a terminal and typing: emacs):


“An error has occurred while loading ‘/home/david/.emacs’


Invalid read syntax: “) or . in a vector”


There is a list of things that comes before this error, and a small suggestion to run ‘—debug-init’ after it. I’ve been working on this off and on for awhile now, but haven’t made any breakthroughs. Any help or insight would be most appreciated.
