Emacs -mm doesn't work
Last modified: 2013-08-11 14:31:49 EDT
when i start 'emacs -mm' it should start maximized and it doesn't work on fedora 19. It was working correctly on fedora 18.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emacs -mm
emacs is not maximized
emacs is maximized
with the current emacs version all works properly.
Update your system and let me know whether it is working
on your desktop too.
If yes I will close that BZ
Not it doesn't work
[root@vala ~]# yum install emacs
Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, langpacks, refresh-packagekit
Package 1:emacs-24.3-9.fc19.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
[root@vala ~]# logout
mvala@vala ~ $ emacs -mm
and as you can see it doesn't produce any error.
Here is output from emacs "Messages"
Loading /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d/auto-complete-init.el (source)...done
Loading /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d/desktop-entry-mode-init.el (source)...done
For information about GNU Emacs and the GNU system, type C-h C-a.
Well, when I run emacs from terminal like emacs -mm
then I see:
phracek@KIASPORTYW ~> emacs -mm
It seems like it is relevant to Window Manager.
What type of manager are you using Gnome, KDE?
I use GNOME
Hmm, I used cinnammon and it works perfectly.
When I used Gnome then it is not maximizes.
I will solve that as soon as possible.
Finally with the help of upstream I have patch.
