I just upgraded Xubuntu on my laptop from 13.10 to 14.04. Emacs' version is 24.3.1. Everything is working fine except the kill-yank system (copy-paste).
To investigate this, I open emacs in my home ("cd; emacs -nw"), create a file ("C-x C-f test.txt"), write a few dummy lines and kill-yank one of them ("C-space C-n Esc-w"). But when I enter the last command ("Esc-w"), the mini-buffer displays the following message:
The mark is not set now, so there is no region
I have no idea what is going on and how to fix this. Any advice?
Here are a few more remarks that can help find the cause of the problem:
- when I open emacs with a window (that is, without option "-nw"), kill-yank still doesn't work with the keyboard shortcuts (as above), but it does work with the mouse
- my emacs profile ("~/.emacs") is here didn't change with the upgrade and doesn't have anything related to kill-yank
