Description Michael Schwendt 2001-10-22 15:45:46 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011012

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):

How reproducible:

Additional info:
Roswell has introduced /etc/jed.conf, but /usr/share/jed/lib/jed.rc is
still loaded.
Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2001-11-09 20:34:52 EST
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
Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2001-11-09 21:10:36 EST
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
Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2004-04-01 05:19:12 EST
Not true for jed-0.99.16-3, but I've switched to Emacs again long ago.
