After starting emacs 25 (GUI) and pressing C-h r I get the message "info emacs file missing". The same holds for the elisp manuals which are normally accessible from emacs. What happened and how can I fix it?

1 Answer 1


Installing package emacs25-common-non-dfsg should solve the problem, as the package contain documentation for Emacs.

sudo apt install emacs25-common-non-dfsg
  • Apparently the package was there but not selected. Thnx.
