my emacs' version: GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.10.9) of 2014-05-21 on buildvm-07.phx2.fedoraproject.org
I hope Emacs's title display the absolute path of the current file. I wrote the following contents (from internet):
;;;Emacs title bar to reflect file name (defun frame-title-string () "Return the file name of current buffer, using ~ if under home directory" (let ((fname (or (buffer-file-name (current-buffer)) (buffer-name)))) ;;let body (when (string-match (getenv "HOME") fname) (setq fname (replace-match "~" t t fname)) ) fname)) ;;; Title = 'system-name File: foo.bar' (setq frame-title-format '("" system-name " File: "(:eval (frame-title-string))))
before reinstalling FC20 + Emacs, the above content was able to work correctly. Now it does not work except that I open .emacs and eval frame-title-format manually, I do not know why I must manually eval it?
I was affected by the same problem. On CentOS 7 and Fedora 21 systems, I found that
frame-title-format (and nothing else). Presumably Fedora 20 has the same issue. The same file contains instructions for disabling this ("Setting
inhibit-default-init non-nil in
~/.emacs") which worked for me.
The answer that @abelard20008 refers to does the same thing.
