I have lost my emacs config and I try to reconfigure my .init.el on my work station.

I have install helm and defined :

(global-set-key (kbd "C-x C-f") 'helm-find-files)

I have the good windows, but in my last configuration i was able to navigate through my project with the keyboard arrow.

example :

C-x C-f --> /home/foo/bar/

left arrow --> /home/foo/

right arrow --> /home/foo/bar/

In my emacs, actually, this behaviour is not reproducted. What should I do to have it ?


You have to add (customize-set-variable 'helm-ff-lynx-style-map t) in your .emacs.
