Maybe I am missing something rather simple but I completely fail to use
dired on a remote machine. I can connect via
ssh directly without emacs and I can edited a file using Tramp on the remote machine from within Emacs, as it should be. But when I want to use
dired to show the home directory on the remote machine I just get an buffer with just one line but not the files in this directory.
C-x C-f /ssh:firstname.lastname@example.org:/Users/Martin/
and was expecting that the whole directory is shown as it is on my local machine.
During completion, i.e. before I press
Enter above, I see the files and directories on my remote machine.
Any hint is gratefully acknowledge.
Just to document my findings: I disabled
dired-quicksort and switched back to macOS'
ls and it works fine now. I do not have the time to investigate this further but maybe this will help others in the future.
