I didn't reply all on the below -- whoops!

I'm laughing here, because I've been on your side of conversations like this a dozen times.

Unfortunately, I don't use git. The two files I sent over come from the code that's installed by the package manager directly.

You are not getting Hyperbole V7.0.3 even though the version says that.  You must have something in your initializations that is pointing somewhere that says, "Give me the latest code from Elpa" rather than "give me the code published with the latest release number".  Please send the value of
the 'package-archives' variable, so we can see from where your packages are coming.

Mine that gets me the right code looks like:

package-archives is a variable defined in ‘package.el’.
Its value is
(("gnu" . "https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/")
 ("melpa" . "https://melpa.org/packages/"))
Original value was
(("gnu" . "https://elpa.gnu.org/packages/"))


To get them, I moved my actual `.emacs.d` folder somewhere else, created a new `.emacs.d` folder containing an init that had only this in it:

(require 'package)
      (setq package-enable-at-startup nil) ;; Prevent double loading of libraries
      (unless (package-installed-p 'hyperbole)
        (package-install 'hyperbole))
      (require 'hyperbole)

And then started Emacs as normal.

I tested this exact procedure again this morning, and although for whatever reason I got a couple of bad signature errors from elpa.gnu.org, the same set of files with the same missing stuff came down.

I swear I'm not *trying* to be frustrating! Sorry!

Addition: I checked the savannah link that's on the Hyperbole page (https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/hyperbole.git/tree/, linked from the "ftp and git" section) and the `hypb.el` in there seems to be the same incomplete one I'm getting from the package manager:


Thanks again for looking into all this stuff!

Sure thing -- hopefully they're attached. These are a fresh download from elpa.gnu.org<http://elpa.gnu.org>

Ok, that helped show what is going on.  You apparently are not downloading release 7.0.3 but the head of the elpa git tree which includes a bunch of additional changes that Stefan M. made for potential future use, as you can see here:


So instead, don't use any form of git, just install Hyperbole from the package manager after getting rid of all other versions and you will get version 7.0.3 (confirmed today).  Then apply that one patch I sent you.
