Hi Michael,

Hi,

However because of all the different machines and different usernames, I
rely on my ~/.ssh/config to specify the username on the remote machine.
So I open a remote file like this,

`/ssh:remote-host-alias:/path/to/file'

Probably that is why the frame title shows up as,

address@hidden:file'

Yes. Tramp does not know the application specific configuration.

But I think I can live with that. Thanks a lot Michael. :)

So either you obmit the user part in the frame title (it is of no use
for you then), or you write your own small function which extracts it
from ~/.ssh/config.

Yes I ended up commenting that one out. :) Trying to write a function to extract the username from ~/.ssh/config would be a good exercise in lisp for a newbie like me. Thanks, I appreciate the help.


Best regards, Michael.
