Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 999932
desktop loading broken
Last modified: 2014-09-30 19:41:42 EDT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a new directory, cd into it
3. edit a new file with a few lines, save it under the dir, stay in the file's buffer
4. M-x desktop-save, choose the created dir
5. C-x C-c
6. stay in the created dir
*scratch* buffer opens, there's no buffer created with the new files
Worked in early F19.
the problem was posted into emacs upstream discussion
Petr, thanks for posting that link. I even found that this has really been documented in the release NEWS:
** `desktop-path' no longer includes the "." directory.
Desktop files are now located in ~/.emacs.d by default.
It unfortunately looks like emacs upstream is not much afraid of breaking tiny things like this and we'll have to read the NEWS more often.
Here's what fixed it for me in my .emacs:
(setq desktop-path (cons "./" desktop-path))
As far as I'm concerned you can close this now as NOTABUG.
thanks for your update as well.
I will mark notice about this problem in case that other BZs will come up.
