Problems with emacs

Recommended Posts

Hey all.

 

I'm a complete noob to Slackware and Linux in general, been a Windows bunny until tonight.

Just installed Slackware on a spankingly new PC, and I'm having all sorts of fun trying to make things work, and for the most part I'm doing ok.

 

The one thing I haven't been able to problemsolve my way through is emacs.

When i try and load it, it throws the following error:

emacs: error while loading shared libraries: libXaw3d.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 

Unsure how to proceed from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Thanks!

Fixed!

 

Someone from another forum told me that to run emacs in text only mode, I need to delete the emacs symbolic link from /usr/bin and create a new symbolic link pointing to emacs-<version>-no-x11, which worked perfectly.
