Description of problem:
"man jed" says:
The system wide configuration file.
But the location is: /usr/share/jed/lib/jed.rc
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Roswell has introduced /etc/jed.conf, but /usr/share/jed/lib/jed.rc is
Loading of /usr/share/jed/lib/jed.rc from /usr/share/jed/lib/site.sl is broken.
/usr/share/jed/lib/jed.rc is not loaded at all (but would be easy to fix).
When /usr/share/jed/lib/defaults.sl is present, /etc/jed.conf is not loaded at
And if that sounded confusing, here's the short version:
/etc/jed.conf ought to be documented in "man jed" because the old mechanism for
loading system wide defaults works no longer. /usr/share/jed/lib/jed.rc is
effectively disabled due to IMHO questionable code in site.sl.
fixed in current releases
Not true for jed-0.99.16-3, but I've switched to Emacs again long ago.
