OK, save-places in emacs is not working, this is not the issue, there are a lot of other things in play.
So I thought I would use fd to find the locations of the
places files in my home:
l pl* .rw-r--r-- xircon xircon 9.7 KB Mon Apr 5 12:02:59 2021 places .rw-r--r-- xircon xircon 9.7 KB Mon Apr 5 09:23:52 2021 places-old .rw-r--r-- xircon xircon 0 B Mon Apr 5 11:55:35 2021 placesp fd places places-old placesp locate places | grep emacs-term /home/xircon/dotfiles/emacs-term/places /home/xircon/dotfiles/emacs-term/places-old /home/xircon/dotfiles/emacs-term/placesp
Why doesn’t places appear in the found files. I am going back to bed
This gets weirder:
mdcd testxx touch places touch places1 touch places2 touch places2 touch places3 fd places places places1 places2 places3
