Setup: Xubuntu 16.04, GNU Emacs 22.214.171.124
I have the following function defined.
(defun sudo-edit (&optional arg) "Edit currently visited file as root. With a prefix ARG prompt for a file to visit. Will also prompt for a file to visit if current buffer is not visiting a file." (interactive "P") (if (or arg (not buffer-file-name)) (find-file (concat "/sudo:root@localhost:" (ido-read-file-name "Find file(as root): "))) (find-alternate-file (concat "/sudo:root@localhost:" buffer-file-name))))
When I want to edit
/etc/default/grub, and in the GUI Emacs frame I call
sudo-edit, after typing my password, it works fine. But when I do the same with the emacsclient in terminal, it exits directly to the terminal after calling the same
sudo-edit. And it's not responding anymore, and I cannot create another frame.
I fail to understand why Emacs is not handling this properly in terminal, and the GUI frame does it well. I couldn't find anything in the function which is related to the GUI.
Anybody that can find where this functions went wrong with the terminal Emacs?
