emacs loading in xterm?
I just installed the emacs editor on my comp. But when I type 'emacs' in xterm the eritor loads in the comand prompt.... not in a separate window like a normal program would...?
I downloaded the emacs-21.3.tar.gz file and followed the instructions to install it... My question is how do I get the editor to open like a normal program in a new window and not in xterm?
NOTE; im new with linux/unix so please give me a step by step explanation rather then "do this..." type of explanation :)
try --->#emacs &
it will open emacs as a background process in the shell window....
remember if u close the shell window the emacs gets killed..
The command '#emacs &' is not working... nothing happens, no messages...nothing..:confused:
UsualTuxpect meant with out the hash symbol "#"
ps : UsualTuxpect, vB code is always a friend. :D
