After installing ros-noetic on a debian 10. I installed ros-noetic-rosemacs via apt. The installed version is : 0.4.17-1buster.20220221.094135.

When I run emacs (emacs --debug-init) I get the following error:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-function dynamic-completion-table)
  (dynamic-completion-table #'(lambda (str) (rosemacs-bsearch str ros-all-topics)))
  (setq topic-completor (dynamic-completion-table #'(lambda (str) (rosemacs-bsearch str ros-all-topics))))

Do you have any idea how to make rosemacs work?

It seems that the problem is that the function "dynamic-completion-table" has changed its name in emacs, now it is called "completion-table-dynamic".

To solve the problem, I changed in the file: "/opt/ros/noetic/share/emacs/site-lisp/rosemacs.el" all occurrences of "dynamic-completion-table" by "completion-table- dynamic". it seems to work for now.

Glad you found a workaround. Seeing /opt/ros/noetic/share/emacs in your error output, I guess your rosemacsis installed via the installer, of which code is maintained at Why don't you submit a bugfix?
