Using git


  • Git
  • GNU Emacs (27.1+)
  • JetBrains Mono (or any other font and replace it in init.el)
  • PDF Tools (at the moment it is installed manually due to conflicts with use-package.)

On Debian GNU/Linux:

# apt install git emacs fonts-jetbrains-mono elpa-pdf-tools

With GNU Guix:

$ guix install git emacs font-jetbrains-mono emacs-pdf-tools


The following tools are optional and allow you to open files from dired. They can be replaced by any other package of choice in the corresponding section of init.el.

  • sxiv (image viewer)
  • mpv (media player)

On Debian GNU/Linux:

# apt install sxiv mpv

With GNU Guix:

$ guix install sxiv mpv


If any previous configuration exists, move it (or delete it):

$ mv .emacs.d/ old-emacs-d

Clone and rename the repository in ~/:

$ git clone https://notabug.org/dlmayhem/terror-emacs.git .emacs.d

Start Emacs et voilà !

Once all the packages are installed, all that remains is to run the following command inside Emacs:

M-x all-the-icons-install-fonts


NOTE: This method is not recommended, because you will need most of the dependencies mentioned in the previous section.

  1. Download the .zip or .tar.gz file from this site.
  2. Uncompress the file.
  3. Remove or rename your current .emacs.d directory.
  4. Place and rename the package you downloaded as your new .emacs.d directory.
  5. Start Emacs.
  6. Run M-x all-the-icons-install-fonts

Emacs 27.1 (Org mode 9.3)
