bug#4295: 23.1; saving default font


From: Jim Mahoney
Subject: bug#4295: 23.1; saving default font

User-agent: Thunderbird 2.0.0.23 (Macintosh/20090812)

I've played around with this a bit more,
but haven't seen anything change, nor can
do I see any customization that would be interfering.

* I did have a macports emacs installed in
  /opt/local ; I've disabled it with no change in behavior.

* I have likewise disable my ~/.xemacs/ folder; I don't
  know if emacs uses that.

* I can't find a "battery" initialization in another emacs,
  nor have I see noticed that before.

* Apropos on "battery" shows "display-battery-mode";
  turning that on and then Options >> Save Options does
  write that to ~/.emacs :

thirty:Library$ more ~/.emacs
(custom-set-variables
  ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.
  ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
  ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
 '(display-battery-mode t))
(custom-set-faces
  ;; custom-set-faces was added by Custom.
  ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
  ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
 )

The status bar says "wrote /Users/mahoney/.emacs" after Save Options,
when I set or unset the "display-battery-mode".  However the default
font choice isn't saved.

So it knows how to write to ~/.emacs ; however, the "default font"
choice isn't seen as something that emacs needs to save.

The font choice dialog is mac-specific, as the movie link
I sent you shows.  If you haven't tested it on a Mac,
then it wouldn't surprise me that you can't see the bug.

As I said earlier, I would be interested in an emacs
with a simple Mac integration; however, this one doesn't
seem to pass this first test I tried.

I wish you all luck with it, and submitted the bug to
be helpful, but am not particularly interested in spending
the time to pursue this.

Good luck,
