Finally a beautiful GNU Emacs !


Now I have an Emacs with 2 wonderful features:
- GTK support (well, I would have prefered Qt, but it's OK though)
- XFT (understand: beautiful) fonts

I found an Gentoo ebuild package under Gentoo bugzilla, and this Emacs Wiki howto. The installation was not really that difficult, I just had to adapt the cvs server adress and login datas. Not a big thing!

It's really a pleasure to use, I can't resist to show you a little screenshot... Still I like to use my emacs in Konsole, because it's totally transparent even if I'm editing on a server at the other side of the world.

PS: have you ever used ed, the standard text editor??
