I hope that many would agree that emacs is one of the greatest editors made by the one and only R.M.S!!
It happens to be my favorite too..
Well, one of the problems i face,when i use emacs in interactive mode is.. i need to press maximize icon everytime to go to full screen..
And thats when python came to rescue..Open the config file of emacs.. That will be there in your home folder..
If you prefer terminal, then,
1. Type cd
2. Open .emacs file
**-desktop$ emacs .emacs
If you go by GUI, then,
1. Go to your home folder
2. Enable 'Show hidden files' option in View menu
3. Browse through the folder to find .emacs and then open it..
Add this code in the file...
(defun toggle-fullscreen () (interactive) (x-send-client-message nil 0 nil "_NET_WM_STATE" 32 '(2 "_NET_WM_STATE_MAXIMIZED_VERT" 0)) (x-send-client-message nil 0 nil "_NET_WM_STATE" 32 '(2 "_NET_WM_STATE_MAXIMIZED_HORZ" 0)) ) (toggle-fullscreen)
Now that should open emacs in Maximized mode with all the icons unlike -fs mode which disables few toolbars..
