Default frame width for frames created with C-x C-f how

Hi, I've been using aquamacs for a while now, and just
upgraded to 1.3.  I know very little about how it works,
so this question may be pretty stupid.

After the upgrade, it seems that by default, new frames
appear with width 56 instead of width 80, especially if I
make a frame using C-x C-f.  This did not happen before I
upgraded.  I have tried changing my .emacs file and my
Preferences.el file by adding:

(smart-frame-positioning-mode nil)

(setq default-frame-alist '((width . 80) (height . 55)))

(setq initial-frame-alist '((width . 80) (height . 55)))

(setq aquamacs-auto-frame-parameters nil)

(I put that code at the end of both files).  Any
suggestions?  If, as some google searches seem to suggest,
this is being overridden by major modes or something like
that, how do I change the alist (or whatever the analogue
is) for the different major modes?

Thanks, and apologies for being ignorant,
Tim

AUCTeX-XeTeX broken after switch to Carbon Emacs


Hello everyone,

I've been running Emacs under the Mac OS X terminal for a while and managed to get
AUCTeX setup and working with La/XeTex thanks to help of some you on this list.  I
recently switched over to Carbon Emacs and now, when processing a XeTeX document I
get the following complaint:

This is XeTeX, Version 3.141592-2.2-0.995 (Web2C 7.5.5)
entering extended mode
! I can't find file `" -interaction=nonstopmode"'.

XeTeX then asks for an alternative file name.  Everything was working fine (and
still does) when Gnu Emacs is run through the terminal.  Any advice on what to
look into?

Thanks in advance,
Peter

Try to customise your changes again! Notice the syntax used by the  
standard TeX commands.

Re: AUCTeX-XeTeX broken after switch to Carbon Emacs

I had this same problem. I think it arises because Carbon Emacs does
not set the path variable in Emacs, whereas Aquamacs does, so Carbon
Emacs can't find your TeX executable.

There is a discussion of a (in my opinion, overly complicated)
solution on <http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/CarbonEmacsPackage#toc30>

I solved my problem my manually setting my path in my .emacs as follows:

(setenv "PATH"  (concat (getenv "PATH") "/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:....")

There are a few ways to find what path string you want to you here.
Fire up terminal and type

echo $PATH

is one possibility.

Just curious.  Any reason you prefer Carbon Emacs over Aquamacs?

Thanks,
Enrico

Re: AUCTeX-XeTeX broken after switch to Carbon Emacs


Enrico,

I've tried Aquamacs as well---a very fine program.  Two reasons come to mind:
first, and most importantly, I'm at the point now where I seldom leave Emacs to do
anything, and so I like working with Emacs full-screen.  I find this minimizes
external distractions and maximizes screen real estate with the tool bars and Mac
menu bar hidden.  In the past I did this by running Emacs in iTerm, which has full
screen support (but of course, cannot display images, or previews through AUCTeX).
Carbon Emacs has a full screen capability that works as I want it to.  Now I know
Aquamacs also has full screen support, but only in the development builds; and
Aquamacs crashes whenever I try to enable this feature.  (Hopefully this will be
fixed in the next release.)  Second, it seems the key difference between Carbon
Emacs and Aquamacs (apart from the API) is Aquamacs' intent to be more ``Mac
like;'' this is a noble aim, but is not really a feature which concerns me, since
I have learned and am comfortable with the traditional Emacs commands.  For, now
I'm using what I think best fits my needs.  If you think there is a compelling
reason to consider Aquamacs that I may be unaware of, I would welcome your views.

Thanks,
Peter

We can only fix things if people like you report bugs; up to now I was  
unaware of any crashes related to full screen editing.

If you're on a PPC Mac and run nightly builds from us, you will not  
have the full screen function at all, but it also shouldn't crash.

A proper bug report to aquamacs-bug <at> aquamacs.org would be much  
appreciated.  Please post the stack trace you get by clicking on  
"Report to Apple" in the post-crash dialog (just copy & paste the  
information out of the window), describe the system that you are using  
(PPC/Intel, OS version) and do all of this using the "Send Bug Report"  
function in Aquamacs' Help menu.

Thanks for your assistance.

Re: AUCTeX-XeTeX broken after switch to Carbon Emacs


Hello David,

I have an Intel MacBook Pro, running Tiger 10.4.11.  I cannot replicate the bug
using the latest developer builds.  I do recall however, that Aquamacs only
crashed when the mac-toggle-full-frame command was run---the Command-Shift-Return
command was (and still is) reported as undefined.  The command now works for me
using last night's build---and the full-screen display look great, nice job.  The
GNU-Emacs-nightly installer clobbered my copy of Carbon Emacs though (which calls
itself ``Emacs.'')  It might be nice if the installer had an installation notice
about this (at least where it planed to put things)---though (Carbon) Emacs really
should have a distinct name.  (I've tried renaming Carbon Emacs, but that breaks
things, so at present I cannot run both programs interchangeably without
adjustments each time.)

In Aquamacs, my Wanderlust MUA component and w3m are not working---so for now I'm
going to stick with Carbon Emacs where they do.  I'll keep an eye on Aquamacs'
development though.

Regards,
Peter

Good.

Yes, but that's been fixed.

> ---the Command-Shift-Return
> command was (and still is) reported as undefined.

That's strange.  When you type C-h k A-S-Return, do you also get a  
message that it is undefined?
That shouldn't be.  Would you please examine the appropriate keymap by  
typing C-h v osx-key-mode-map RET?
You should see a line that says

(A-S-return . aquamacs-toggle-full-frame)

among many other bindings.
Thanks for your help.
