Great howto, but a get
emacs: Cannot open termcap database file
when I tried to run emacs frome the terminal.
Sorry folks. I'm a newbie forum user and did not notice the small numbers at the bottom of the page indicating the thread had more pages...
Anyhow, my beautiful emacs is up and running thanks to #45
EDIT 2: I would advise anyone with a stupid machine and who is as linux-stupid as I am to NOT follow the howto and to use the wonderful Anindya's deb package. I went through dependency hell with the compilation and ended up erasing tla, cvs and almost anything with "emacs" on folder/filename on my pc out of rage, while the package installation was a breeze - it even took care of TWENTY-THREE dependencies without me having to move a finger!
I followed this howto step by step, everything runned without a hitch, except for a little detail... emacs is *still* in GTK 1.2!! And yes I did restart the computer, to check if that wasn't the problem... any help?
Also, I don't have any such file as ".Xresources" in my home dir, the closest I found was ".Xauthority", has this anything to do with the problem?
EDIT: Never mind me, I couldn't imagine the emacs menu entry wasn't the same link I needed to use. Typed "emacs on the terminal and got "emacs: Cannot open termcap database file", will install. Still trying to workaround it with the help of people's previous posts.

I was wondering, has anyone else been experiencing problems with installing AucTeX from the .deb package? When I run dpkg -i on it, I get the following error message:
---Code:dpkg: error processing auctex-xft_11.83-1_i386_dapper.deb (--install): trying to overwrite `/usr/local/share/info/dir', which is also in package emacs-xft-gtk dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Sorry, I see the question is already answered above. I really should have read more carefully.

Anindya's .deb package installed great for me on my i386 box. Yeah, emacs that doesn't sear the eyes! And it finally responds to drag+drop too.
On amd64, however, I get the complaint about it being for the wrong architecture (i386) though.
Should I just try it with --force-architecture ? Will I need to do bunch of fixups to get it all together? Anyone been through this already?
Is there a .deb for a Kubuntu (KDE in general) or do you have any other howtos?
The emacs I installed in Kubuntu so far doesnt support antialiasing and the text doesnt change color when you start a function etc...
Do you know how can this be fixed?
I used these packages to install emacs:
emacs21 emacs-extra emacs-goodies-el emacs auctex preview-latex xfonts-jmk
NOTE for KDE users:
Since the gtk2-engines-qt is version 0.6 in dapper you will get the background problem(background color is only set to text not to whole display). To remove this install the latest version 0.7: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/gtk-qt
Thanks! This looked great!
I got some errors when I installed the .deb's but it haven't complained about anything when using the program, so I guess I'll just ignore it 8)
I tried installing Anindya's deb, but why does it depends on things like gnome-screensaver (?), compiz (a 3D desktop ?) or rhythmbox (!) ?
It seems to me that the packaging is not very well done...
