Emacs 24.5.1 on OS X in terminal mode.
I intend to use
desktop-save-mode to save and restore window layout (i.e. positions of buffer windows) upon exiting and starting
From this answer and its comments, people suggest that recent versions of
Emacs does save and restore window layout when
desktop-save-mode is enabled. However, when I exit
Emacs with two side-by-side windows each containing a file buffer, only the last active buffer (the one where the cursor last rested at) is restored upon restarting
My relevant configurations are:
(setq desktop-auto-save-timeout nil
desktop-path (list desktop-dirname)
I've checked the value of variable
desktop-restore-frames, and Emacs reports "Its value is t", and its description says "When non-nil, save and restore the frame and window configuration".
I also use perspective.el, but I am not sure if it is related to the problem.
I wonder if the problem is caused by some conflict with other package/settings, and if possible, how do I detect and resolve such conflict.
