I am attempting to set up the new emacs 26.1
display-line-numbers-mode as described in this comment: hybrid line number mode in emacs?
I have added this to my .emacs file:
(setq display-line-numbers 'relative display-line-numbers-current-absolute t)
When I evaluate the above expression the desired behavior is produced, but it is not persistent. For example, it is not automatically evaluated on restarting emacs, and when I try to use my keybinding toggle:
(global-set-key (kbd "C-c l") 'display-line-numbers-mode)
The line numbers that are toggled are not relative.
What is the appropriate way to set
relative in my configuration file so that using the keybinding results in relative line numbers?
