I can't get joe to save all backup files in one directory. I have the following line in /etc/joe/joerc
scab:~$ ll -d .joe_bak
drwxrwxrwx 2 kent kent 4.0k May 11 07:10 .joe_bak
I'm using debian potato and compiled "testing joe 2.8-19"
The full error message I get when trying to save a file is -
Could not make backup file. Save anyway (y,n,^C)?
I just discovered I can make this work if I use -backpath as a command line option. Don't know why it doesn't work from the config file though?
I'm having the same problem with joe 3.1. Joe, could you please have a look at this?
I too am having the same problem :(
