Summary buffer is the buffer you enter when you press either RET or SPACE or click the middle mouse button onto a group of the GroupBuffer. It shows you a list of all messages of the selected group. Here you can see which messages are new, read, unread, etc…
Here are a couple of handy shortcuts:
What if you want to followup AND reply at the same time? First press F to followup, then press C-c C-t to insert the email address of the original author.
To leave the summary buffer press simply q or c if you also want to catchup (mark read) the messages in the summary buffer.
You can customize the way you want it to present you things.
You can use the
%B in the
gnus-summary-line-format to have display complex trn-style thread tree. See GnusTreeImage for an example. The nice arrows can be obtained by setting
gnus-sum-thread-*. For example :
(setq gnus-sum-thread-tree-root "\x4912f " gnus-sum-thread-tree-single-indent "\x4912e " gnus-sum-thread-tree-leaf-with-other "\x4903c\x49020\x490fa " gnus-sum-thread-tree-vertical "\x49022" gnus-sum-thread-tree-single-leaf "\x490b0\x49020\x490fa ")
Debian has the terminus fonts which is a very nice monospace font. The font is available in different encoding including
ibmpc-cp437. That was font shown in the above image.
I want to start emacs like:
emacs21 -font terminus-iso8859-1-16
and then change the
gnus-summary-*-face to use
ibmpc-cp437 encoding but I could find any way to that. I gave up and start emacs as:
emacs32 -font terminus-dos-437-16
Anyone know how to change the encoding for just a face? --LinhDang
