Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 62193
command line args ignoring?
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:22 EDT
Description of Problem:
I'm trying to run emacs in reverse video mode (argument -r) and it
doesn't work. Other arguments as -bg, -fg are not working too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[echelon:~]rpm -qa | grep emacs
Red Hat Linux release 7.2.92 (Skipjack)
Run terminal and try `emacs -r`. It doesn't work for me, in Enigma it works
Non ignoring command line arguments ... (Or I'm wrong somewhere)
There are problems with shipped Skipjack CDs, it's hand update from 7.2 to
Skipjack. Maybe there is some problem? I think no, everything else works
fine under emacs ...
Hmm, now I tried to use ~/.Xresources file and emacs is ignoring it too.
One line from ~/.Xresources
and it doesn't work too. Not only command line args are ignored, Xresources
I'm sorry, second comment is bad, .Xresources works fine, I forgot to run xrdb
tool. But -r command line argument is still not working.
Verified that "emacs -q -r" works (X), and that "emacs -q -nw -r" works
(konsole, gnome-terminal). emacs-21.2-1
