Quicklisp Issue

Recommended Posts


I know support for quicklisp is not expected of this forum, but in case someone has found a fix, I would appreciate the insight.


I installed quicklisp without any problem. But when I try to install "drakma" library (via console), I am getting this error:


? (ql:quickload "drakma")
To load "drakma":
  Load 1 ASDF system:

Indeed, this is not a Opusmodus issue.



I don't see any error when loading 'drama'.

You need to install the CCL first in your home directory.



;;; CCL path
(setf (logical-pathname-translations "ccl") '((#P"ccl:**;*.*" #P"/Users/opusmodus/ccl/**/*.*")))

;;; Quicklisp Setup
(let ((quicklisp-init
       (merge-pathnames "quicklisp/setup.lisp"
  (when (probe-file quicklisp-init)
    (load quicklisp-init)))


Maybe this helps:

Thanks very much.


Obviously I had not read the quick lisp-related posts fully. I did the following and it works now:

1) Created a directory "ccl" under my user name directory

2) cd to that directory

3) svn co http://svn.clozure.com/publicsvn/openmcl//release/1.11/darwin-x86-headers64

4) In the file "Quicklisp Start.lisp" located under "~/Opusmodus/Extensions" folder, I uncommented and modified the following line:

(setf (logical-pathname-translations "ccl") '((#P"ccl:**;*.*" #P"/Users/Rangarajan/ccl/**/*.*")))


That is it.

      When printing a notated score or a document from Opusmodus, some amount of the content is cut out from left and right sides of the page. Maybe there is a setting somewhere that could be adjusted to enlarge the printable area?
      My system is Mojave 10.14.6. My preferred page size is A4.
      Thanks for help,

      Dear all,
      After updating to a recent Opusmodus version 1.3, I ran into some errors when loading code that had been loaded and compiled before, e.g., quicklisp, quicklisp libraries, swank (the interface that allows using Emacs Slime with Opusmodus), and my own Lisp libraries. The errors I saw were rather cryptic, like the following:
      Error: The value "CL" is not of the expected type list.
      While executing: (:internal ccl::operation-on-all-specs ccl::%define-package), in process Listener-1(7).
      After exchanges with Janusz (thanks a lot for your help!) I learnt that the underlying Common Lisp version of Opusmodus had been upgraded to CCL version 1.12, and the format of compiled files (fasl files or dx64fsl files) of this version had changed.
      So, in case you run into similar problems, these can be fixed simply by deleting all previously compiled files (which Lisp stores if they do not change to speed up the load process), so that the Lisp compiler has to compile them again. In the folder  ~/.cache/common-lisp just delete any folders starting with ccl-, so that all compiled files in this directory are compiled again.

      Recently when I start Opus Modus I get this error message.  Is there something to do?
      With thanks!
