Currently I am having partial problems in my XEmacs. Since several days
ago, the auto indentations for XEmacs does not work. I made cpp files and
loaded my old cpp files but when I press tab, it does it like microsoft
word instead of the aligned-to-previous-line and indent-after-curly-braces
and so on. The confusing problem is that I clean-reinstalled XEmacs, but
for some reason the admin account has no problems while the limited
account encounter that issue (Windows XP SP2). At school, under Linux, I
am also having the same issue. I made sure I got rid of any .emacs file or
.xemacs folder. No problem was encountered with emacs on the other side.
I've been trying to play around with the init.el file, adding whatever
various popular versions of init.el are around. However, this does not
affect the absence of the powerful indenter in xemacs and emacs.
When i tried to use (setq indent-line-function 'indent-relative-maybe) in
init.el, i could not even automatically indent at all after brackets. It
would stay aligned as the previous line.
Is there any solution to this? Is it some old problem? Does it have
anything to do with Cygwin? The version of XEmacs my school uses is 21.5
beta 28, while for my home computer I've attempted to use XEmacs 21.4.19,
Thank you for looking into this problem.
