Hello everyone,

I am just moving over to emacs and want to use ot for all my C++
development. I want to configure the start screen so that I get two
vertical buffers and a single terminal window at the bottom of my
screen.

So, something like:

----------------------------------------
code window| code window
----------------------------------------
   terminal window
----------------------------------------

Is it possible to specify this in the .emacs file, so that the default
emacs opens with this setup?

Many thanks,

Luca

Hi,

add following code to your .emacs

(defun na-setup-frame ()
  "setup frame"
  (interactive)
  ;;divide vertically upper gets 35 lines
  (split-window-vertically  35 )
  (split-window-horizontally)

  ;;assuming you cursor is in top left window
  (other-window 2)
  ;;will skip to terminal window
  ;;run terminal
  (term "/bin/bash")
  ;;move back to first frame
  (other-window 1))
(na-setup-frame)

you can also call this function using M-x na-setup-frame

regards..
