Unless I do:
I get the following error:
(emacs:4048): GLib-WARNING **: In call to g_spawn_sync(), exit status of a child process was requested but SIGCHLD action was set to SIG_IGN and ECHILD was received by waitpid(), so exit status can't be returned. This is a bug in the program calling g_spawn_sync(); either don't request the exit status, or don't set the SIGCHLD action.
** (emacs:4048): WARNING **: Abnormal program termination spawning command line `dbus-launch --autolaunch=614770a5ea44ec425e4c57144ed14d5c --binary-syntax --close-stderr':
+ Segmentation fault emacs
I have no /etc/pango/pango.modules file
