Bug Description

Binary package hint: xemacs21

Since I switched to this version of ubuntu:

Description: Ubuntu 9.10
Release: 9.10

the xemacs jde-package does not start properly anymore when editing a Java source file. Whenever I open a Java source file, i.e. extension .java, I get the following error message in the xemacs minibuffer:

File mode specification error: (file-error "Cannot open load file" "jde-autoload").

When I look at show-message-log, there is just this:

File mode specification error: (file-error "Cannot open load file" "jde-autoload"

To make sure I don't mess things up with any personal startup files, I even removed the ~/.xemacs subdirectory.

Note: I had this error in 10.04 after doing a dist-upgrade.

I found that the package "jde" was not installed. Since searching for (x)emacs nor java showed the package, it isn't trivial to realize what is missing.

It is semi-unfortunate that the previous java-mode functionality was not preserved when the separate package for jde was added, but I'm willing to believe that it would be technically hard or problematic.
