Do you have emacs installed? Open a terminal and type "which emacs" (minus the quotes) and post the response.

Hi,

And welcome to LQ!

I don't know SuSE's default package selection, but chances are
EMACS isn't in it ... use YaSTs software installer and check
for emacs, and if it exists, install it ;}


Cheers,
Tink

That means it's not installed and takes you back to my suggestion
