    I'm also getting the error:
    webdav error: 404 Not Found

    Anyone know why?

    Re: HOWTO: Install GNU Emacs with antialiasing

    I just skipped that step. It seemed to work OK for me. Then again, I'm running debian stable, so what the hork am I doing here?

    My biggest complaint with the new emacs is that the block cursor is SOLID BLACK. I can't see the char that's underneath it! Customizing the "cursor" face has no effect on the actual cursor.

    no its not the same file. you can create it yourself in your home dir ~/.

    Re: HOWTO: Install GNU Emacs with antialiasing

    i found something useful in the net (esp. google cache )

    .Xresources

    Code:
    Emacs*FontBackend: xft
    Emacs*font: Monospace-11
    Xft.dpi: 96
    Xft.hinting: None
    no need to restart the X-Server just do:

    Code:
    xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources
    kind regards

    Re: HOWTO: Install GNU Emacs with antialiasing

    This howto only got me part way there, so I tried the debian (ubuntu) package from Alexandre Vassalotti:

    http://peadrop.com/blog/2007/01/06/pretty-emacs

    Worked perfectly.

    Hi, I would just like to say that the link in the above post worked perfectly for me on feisty. I hope that it's description as alpha doesn't mean that it is really unstable. Will report back if so.

    Re: HOWTO: Install GNU Emacs with antialiasing

    Well it's April 2008 and I'm not sure whether above info applies to modern days. It would be amazing if it does. I didn't compile anything yet but tried to use emacs as it's distributed for Ubuntu 7.10. I don't get antialiased fonts of course, so I tried and I can start emacs with different fonts (the names of which I get from xlsfonts) for example:
    Code:
    emacs --font "lucidasanstypewriter-10"
    This changes the font but I can't make it look antialiased which is quite amazing since fonts everywhere in the system are nice...

    I have also tried putting:
    Code:
    Emacs*FontBackend: xft
    Xft.dpi: 96
    Xft.hinting: None
    And then doing "xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources", but that didn't change anything.

    Can someone who knows current state of Emacs in Ubuntu say what should be done in modern days, should I still download a cvs version and compile it?

    Re: HOWTO: Install GNU Emacs with antialiasing

    Not to oversimplify, but I do know of one solution that worked wonderfully for me. Given that the "Pretty Emacs" (Google it) solution doesn't seem to be working for Hardy Heron, I found something else online that someone said worked.

    However, you have to be running Hardy. =P If you do decide to make the upgrade, then all you have to do is install

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install emacs-snapshot-gtk
    then, within your home directory, create an .Xresources file to tell emacs what font to use...as you can see, I chose Monospace-10. You could choose anything you want.

    Code:
    echo "Emacs.font: Monospace-10" > .Xresources
    On a fresh install of the RC for Hardy Heron, this worked perfectly. Nothing else that I tried did.

    Oh, and to give credit where it's due: http://psung.blogspot.com/2008/03/em...-has-anti.html
