M-x info is missing many files

Hello,

Today I wanted to read libc.info with xemacs. Unfortunately it didn't 
appear after 'M-x info'...
The info files are located in /usr/share/info as are many many others that 
don't appear neither.
I had a look at the "Info-directory-list":

Value: ("/usr/share/xemacs/info/" "/usr/share/xemacs/site-packages/info/" 
"/usr/share/xemacs/mule-packages/info/" 
"/usr/share/xemacs/xemacs-packages/info/" "/usr/local/info/" 
=======>        "/usr/share/info/"           <==== there it is !
"/usr/info/" "/usr/share/xemacs/info/" 
"/usr/share/xemacs/site-packages/info/" 
"/usr/share/xemacs/xemacs-packages/info/")

What is wrong here ? I got used to the xemacs info browser and would very 
much like to use it for all info files...

TIA,

Works for me.  Do you have a /usr/share/info/dir file?  If so, what is
in it?

I see you also have /usr/info and /usr/local/info.  Is there anything
in them?  If so, does it work?  How about the dir files?

What is the value of the variable `Info-auto-generate-directory'?  If
you set that to 'always, things will be slower, but should work.

I suggest that you post to xemacs-beta with the answers, as this is
something that "should" work.

key-mapping/warning

Hi,

what are the (simple) steps to get rid of following warnig at every
xemacs invocation ?

(1) (key-mapping/warning)
	The meanings of the modifier bits Mod1 through Mod5 are determined
	by the keysyms used to control those bits.  Mod1 does NOT always
	mean Meta, although some non-ICCCM-compliant programs assume that.

(2) (key-mapping/warning)
	Two distinct modifier keys (such as Meta and Hyper) cannot generate
	the same modifier bit, because Emacs won't be able to tell which
	modifier was actually held down when some other key is pressed.  It
	won't be able to tell Meta-x and Hyper-x apart, for example.  Change
	one of these keys to use some other modifier bit.  If you intend for
	these keys to have the same behavior, then change them to have the
	same keysym as well as the same modifier bit.

(3) (key-mapping/warning) XEmacs:  Mod1 is being used for both
Mode_switch and Meta.

Thanks.

	xmodmap -e 'remove Mod1 = Mode_switch'

Or maybe:

	xmodmap -e 'keysym Mode_switch = Meta_R'

The first will typically disable the AltGr key (the one immediately to
the right of the space bar), while the second will make it behave the
same as the Alt key (the one immediately to the left of the space
bar).

Those commands will last for the duration of the X session. To make
permanent changes, place the actual command (without the "xmodmap -e"
or the single quotes) into your ~/.Xmodmap file.

I say "typically", because the relationship between physical keys
(e.g. Alt and AltGr) and keysyms (e.g. Mode_switch and Meta_R) is
configurable. You can use the "xev" program to figure out which keys
produce which keysyms.

The essential point of the warning is that XEmacs can't figure out

Cursor moves with mouse

Hello,

I have a strange problem that is difficult for me to discribe (so the 
subject ist not optimal...):

I have the speedbar left of my xemacs window:

####  +++++++++++++++++++
####  +++++++++++++++++++
####  +++++++++++++++++++
####  +++++++++++++++++++
####  +++++++++++++++++++
####  +++++++++++++++++++

(# = speedbar, + = xemacs )

Now when I just move (no mouseclick, no nothing) the mouse from left to 
right, from speedbar to xemacs, the cursor is moved to the location where 
the mouse movement stops.

For example:

Cursor is in Line 1, Column 10
I move the mouse over the speedbar window.
There I move the mouse down 5 lines.
Then I move the mouse right. If I stop this movement in column 20, the 
cursor is now at Line 6, column 20 ...

This is a quite disturbing -- is there a way to let the cursor where it 
belongs ?

force .emacs conversion


Hi all,

does anyone know how to initiate the conversion of
the .emacs file into the new format (.xemacs directory
and options file). Normally Xemacs offers you automatically
to do that, but I once chose not to do it and not to be asked
again. How can I tell Xemacs to do it?

Thanks & regards,
Gerhard

xemacs latex custimization

Hi,

I need to bind a key to do the following:
1) kill a process runnning on the current file
2) TeXify the file and create a dvi file from the .tex file
3) dvips the dvi file to create a .ps file
4) view the postscript file.

is there a way to do this? right now I have to do each seperately i.e. key
binding them to different keys and execute them sequentially. However, I
would like to come up with a function that does it all at the same time.

P.S 1) above is needed because xemacs complains that I cannot have two
processes running on the same file. This is so when I envoke gv to view
the ps file and execute C-c C-c

Any help is greatly appreciated. the only thing I thought of that I know
how to do is to have an executable bin bash file that does all 4 steps.
However, I would like to do it from whithin xemacs.

Thank you

fonts

Hi,

I would like to get xemacs to display it's buffers with anti-aliased 
fonts. I have googled around, but cannot find anything helpful on the web.

I am running Xemacs 21.4 on Mandrake 10 - official.

Kind Regards,

Sam.

syntax highlight question

Hi,
 
I have used the Xemacs Fortran mode for a while. I really like it. But I found I cannot highlight the intrinsic functions such as SIN COS...  in this mode.  I know VIM can do it. I don't know if I can set it in Xemacs.
 
Thanks
