I have foo.txt on the left and a terminal on the right:


How can I restore the layout of the windows with the same buffers displayed after reboot?

I'v installed https://github.com/ffevotte/desktop-plus and tried desktop+-load after desktop+-create which doesn't restore nor inform what's happening.

  • Try out winner-mode and see if that's what you need.

  • Thank you, I must restore the windows and buffers after each reboot which I could not find as a winner-mode feature

You could try psession package. I find it fills exactly my needs.

In your init file :

(psession-mode 1)
   ;; For saving minibuffer history,  as a replacement of savehist-mode.
   (psession-savehist-mode 1)
   ;; to save periodically (autosave) your emacs session,
   (psession-autosave-mode 1)

Best, Samusz
