General :: How To Get A Decent Emacs Setup

Mar 11, 2011

I am currently interested in switching from vim to emacs.One of the more compelling reasons for this is the smooth integration with a unix environment. The most experienced emacs users I have seen have a bash prompt at the bottom of their window, with stdout going to a buffer right above it. They then interact with the output of programs such as grep in interesting ways.I am on Ubuntu 10.04 and the default emacs environment does not seem to do much for me in the way of integration. For example, in the M-x shell mode, output from basic commands like ls produce lots of strange characters and hitting the up arrow does not go to previous commands.

General :: How To Open Emacs In Its Own Window

Aug 20, 2010

I am doing some project work and for that using the server at college with ssh connection. Every time I try to open emacs on the terminal after connecting, it opens emacs in the terminal itself i.e. not its own window. On my laptop on which ubuntu is installed, emacs always opens up in its own window an thats how I am used to it. There are several problems when it opens in the terminal like when I try to use commands such as M-V, actually terminal's view menu opens up, its very frustrating. Also I am pretty sure that the college server runs on red hat and has X installed on it. So what do I need to do to get my emacs window back.

General :: Emacs Is How Much More Than Text Editor?

May 30, 2011

I was reading how you could browse the net with Emacs but then it was stated that it was done with another application like Firefox so this would imply that Emacs is an interpreter would it not? What is Emacs capable of? Is it an interpreter that runs a text editor?

General :: Web Search Engines And Emacs / Vim

Nov 8, 2010

The facilities offered by any text editor to look for a string are highly superior to those offered by search engines such as that of Google or the one used by LQ>Search. To only speak of the most one elementary that comes to my mind, you can reach 'john smith' by searching with the string 'hn smi' in any decente editor, but I know of no search engine that offers this feature.

On the other hand, I have always heard of the power of Vim and Emacs. For instance, they say there is no thing Emacs cannot do. Lets advocate to the job of adding Google searches the ability to find 'john smith' by using 'hn smi' as the matching pattern. Or to add regular expression capabilities. Could I use Vim/Emacs to solve this problem?

A little light into the meaning of my words: It would be Vim/Emacs the one in charge of making the Internet connection, connecting to Google and send appropriate commands go Google. Then, to look for my string, I would be directly using Vim/Emacs which, upon receiving my commands, would send the appropriate ones to Google and return control to me.

General :: Copying Text From Emacs Into Other Programs?

Jul 19, 2010

I want to copy part of a file I'm writing in emacs into, say a blog post or something like that. Putting the text into the kill ring doesn't allow me to paste it into another program. As it stands, I have to open the same file in gedit and copy/paste from there. Is there an easier way?

[Weirdly, it works fine the other way round: copying text off a SU answer, for example, I can paste that into emacs with C-y just fine...]

General :: Lightweight Web Browser With Emacs-like Keybindings?

Uzbl uses hjkl for moving around, much like vim does. I was wondering if there was a browser (text based like links, or needing X like uzbl) which would be easy for someone used to emacs key bindings?Or if there is an emacs mode for having a buffer behave like a Links browser, but with emacs keybindings to move around...[For linux systems, please ideally something available through AUR or a debian package or both]

General :: Define Ctrl-[ As A Shortcut In Emacs?

Aug 9, 2010

On Linux, the Ctrl-[ key combination appears to be equivalent to hitting the Esc key. I would like to define Ctrl-[ as a shortcut in emacs but I am unable to because by the time the keystroke gets to emacs it looks like the Esc key was pressed. Is there anyway to disable this behavior so that Ctrl-[ simply means Ctrl-[?

General :: Setting Default Font In Emacs 23.2.1?

Apr 2, 2011

I'm using emacs 23.2.1 with quack on Linux and trying to set my default typeface to Inconsolata Medium 13. It is installed on my system (debian sid) and can be set manually per buffer in emacs. However, I would like it to be used throughout and by default. My suspicion is that quack's mode is somehow conflicting.

I've searched a good deal looking for information on font customization in emacs. Although there is documentation and examples out there, I've found them fairly incoherent when taken together and nothing specifically addressing this issue. Here is my .emacs

set-default-font "Inconsolata-13")
Turn on visible-bell, get rid of beeps
setq visible-bell t)
Hilight the selected region
setq transient-mark-mode t)
