Still there are problems with saving sessions.
First, I can save a listing (sort of*) by running "desktop-save" and
then follow the prompt to select a directory. I always select
~/.emacs.d/ on the local machine. Is there some way I can configure
desktop-save to always save to this same directory-- and on the local
machine-- and not prompt me each time? If there is no configuration for
this, is it relatively easy to edit the code to accomplish this?
Second, is there a way for "desktop-save" to be run programmatically
whenever I open a new file/buffer or kill a buffer? That is, opening a
new buffer would automatically add that buffer to the session file (for
me, that's .emacs.desktop), killing a buffer would remove it from the
*Third, when I use tramp to open a buffer from a remote machine and then
do "desktop-save" etc., that buffer name is written into the session
file after "(setq file-name-history" but not under ";; Buffer section";
that is, it isn't given a "(desktop-create-buffer" section in the
session file. Consequently, when I next time start emacs, none of the
buffers opened with tramp previous session are opened.
Many years ago emacs did all the above just fine. Anyone know what
happened? Just curious.
Thanks for any help.
