    Poll: Re: How many of you use vi editor?

    Have you tried viper or evil? I haven't tried either, but I'd be interested to hear from someone who has used both editors what the advantages/disadvantages to such an approach would be (in some...

    Re: I am completely new to ubuntu and emacs

    Open GNU Emacs, type: C-h t - spend a few minutes interactively going through that tutorial. Don't just skip stuff because it seems irrelevant. You'll be comfortable using GNU Emacs after that.

    If...

    Re: The perfect notes app

    I'm somewhat surprised it hasn't been mentioned, kind of makes sense I suppose, but org-mode is fantastic... The draw back is that it requires emacs, however 10 minutes on the tutorial and you should...

  5. Re: Emacs... helpful things for C++ development

    Hey, hopefully I can be of some help here - though, I don't actually have experience using this extension, so I can't help in setting it up.

    But anyway, there is an emacs project called CEDET...
  6. Re: vim or emacs? (i know that this is a recurring issue, but now it is mine).

    I don't really think you could go wrong with emacs (or vim for that matter, though I don't have any experience with vim).

    As far as emacs goes, just spend 5 minutes (give or take?) going through...

    Re: Minimalistic Web Browsers.

    Ummm, you can use a mouse with Conkeror just as much as you can use a mouse with, say Chromium.

    Conkeror just enables you to be entirely keyboard oriented, if you want. You don't have to enable...

    Re: anyone use emacs for programming?

    You run C-x C-q (or M-x toggle-read-only) to switch between "read-only" and "write" permissions.

    Depending on what you're after, but still, more than likely (though I am not really a programmer, per se, I am fairly comfortable with emacs and do have some experience programming in it. I do...

    Poll: Re: What browser do you use under Ubuntu?

    How good is Conkeror.


    It's still in the repos for 10.04 (and presumably 10.10). It wouldn't be for later versions most probably because no one has tested it, made sure it works and committed to...
  13. Re: Think you could host a collaborative textbook on github?

    Yeah, I wasn't really saying you had to learn emacs to use this method, sort of just "proof-of-concept" so to speak.

    I was really just saying I think it works well for me.
  14. Re: Think you could host a collaborative textbook on github?

    I do this with a graduate student in computer science (I am in the humanities). We both use emacs and (as sujoy suggested) just use org-mode to export to PDF when we want to view the final document...

    Re: What book are you reading ?

    The Logical Basis of Metaphysics by Michael Dummett. Pretty good, but he's incredibly verbose.

    Poll: Re: Which Browser Do You Use?

    I'm finding Conkeror very good at the moment (and have been using it for the past year or so).

    That said, I don't really need much out of a web browser, so basically anything would suffice.
  25. Re: Kayboard-oriented/Emacs-like spreadsheet editor?

    Have you checked out org-mode for emacs?

    In particular, the built-in table editor. It doesn't look fantastic, but it gets the job done.
