Strange 13.37 regression with Emacs . . .


Hi all,

I've noticed a strange regression with Slackware 13.37 and Emacs.

In Slackware 13.1 (and all previous versions since I started with Slackware 11), Emacs in X-windows looks good regardless of the window manager. I've attached a show of Emacs in Slackware 13.1 to show what I mean. Notice the nice logo and fonts.

In Slackware 13.37, the logo is missing and the fonts are different in KDE (and Window Maker). The logo is back and the fonts look good in XFCE (and TWM). See the other attachments.

Any idea what's going on?

Regards,

Emacs looks just fine in KDE, XFCE, and FVWM on my 64 bit 13.37 system.

I did have to do a clean install versus an upgrade, but that's another story.

Hi there

I used this post to make the fonts look beter in 13.37

I think its Emacs. Latest versions are more desktop aware, it can even depend on gconf now.

You may be right. I have Gconf installed in 13.1 and Emacs 23.3 found it when I compiled the new version. Perhaps I need to install Gconf in 13.37 and recompile Emacs.

You'll need a sufficient frame height to be able to show the Emacs logo. The default frame height was lowered since version 23.3 to 35. https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/19394 http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/f...ly/218883.html
If you start emacs with the -geometry command line option of 80x40 you will see the logo every time, i.e:
Code:
 emacs -g 80x40
Or add these lines to ~/.emacs:
Code:
(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(height . 40))
(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(width . 80))
