;;; Commentary:
;;; ChangeLog
;; 1.3: simplified install (now just copy one line to .emacs, and eval the next)
;; 1.3: added checks for running in terminal
;; 1.3: added checks for running on non-w32
;; 1.2: added font save/restore
;; 1.1: added more descriptive, correct installation docs
;1. put this file in your load path and add to your .emacs file (as the last thing) (without the semicolon):
;(require 'frame-restore)
;2. now evaluate the next line (don't uncomment it) [by putting the cursor at the end and pressing C-xC-e]
;(progn (require 'desktop) (customize-set-variable 'desktop-enable t) (desktop-save "~/") (require 'frame-restore))
;3. now change your font using S-down-mouse-1, adjust your frame size, then shutdown/restart emacs to test.
;;once installed, i never have problems, but before that, it seems possible to get into strange states. if that happens try:
;1. shutdown emacs
;2. delete .emacs.desktop
;3. restart
;4. follow normal install
;since the font is stored here, don't also store it through a customization of the 'default' face. you may customize that face, just make sure the "Font Family" attribute box is unchecked.
