Fork me on GitHub

I've just installed Spacemacs on a windows machine and I get the following error: Query timeout error: "Query timed out", 30 [2 times] Error running timer ‘git-gutter:live-update’: (file-missing "Searching for program" "No such file or directory" "diff") I'd greatly appreciate some suggestions on how I can find the source of the problem and how to fix it. Thank you.


Sounds like Emacs cannot find a fiff tool on the command line (or what ever git-gutter is trying to call) My suggestions would be: Install a diff CLI tool on windows and make sure Emacs can find it in the path (check path with SPC f e e ) Or disable git-gutter if it's causing an issue


Thanks John. I'll give that a try. What is git gutter?


They are ways to show which lines have changed compared to the last commit in the Emacs gutter


I think the problem was with the github layer, which I don't use anyway. I've disabled it and it's not causing a problem anymore. Thank you always for your help, John.
