When using commit f41e9e4 (28 Apr 12) and after, all new buffers appear with invisible cursors. There are no (obvious) error messages displayed. Explicitly setting the cursor face causes the cursor to appear although buffers minted afterwards continue to have an invisible cursor.

emacs version: GNU Emacs 23.4.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin, NS apple-appkit-1038.36) of 2012-01-29 on bob.porkrind.org
color-theme version: 6.6.0

I'm happy to provide further information if required. Thanks!

A few questions:

  • are you running in Cocoa or terminal?
  • if terminal, what is the result of (display-color-cells)?
  • what is the result of M-x describe-face cursor?
  • what is your terminal’s definition for cursor color? (in Terminal.app, this is in Preferences/Settings/Text)

I'm guessing that this is some 8-color terminal weirdness, since I do some tricks to try to turn an 8-color term into a 12-color term. But I'm not sure what's happening specifically.

Oh, one other question – are you using the light or dark Emacs theme, and a light or dark terminal theme?

  • I'm running as a Cocoa app. When I run in a terminal window I don't experience this behavior (to be honest, I rarely run emacs in Terminal).
  • display-color-cells evaluates to 16777216
  • cursor is described as:
    Family: unspecified
    Foundry: unspecified
    Width: unspecified
    Height: unspecified
    Weight: unspecified
    Slant: unspecified
    Foreground: #042028
    Background: #708183
    Underline: unspecified
    Overline: unspecified
    Strike-through: unspecified
    Box: unspecified
    Inverse: unspecified
    Stipple: unspecified
    Font: unspecified
    Fontset: unspecified
    Inherit: unspecified
  • Terminal.app defines the cursor color as RGB 127, 127, 127.
  • I see this behavior with both the light and dark theme in the Cocoa emacs.

Thanks for your (very) prompt response.

Oh, that was a much simpler bug than I thought … I had just grabbed the wrong color for the cursor definition (the cursor face is defined confusingly, IMO).

Anyway, should be better now. Sorry about that.
