Detailed instructions on getting emacs set up or installed.
Official instructions are available on the GNU Emacs website.
On systems with the Debian package manager (such as Debian, Ubuntu, and Mint) Emacs can be installed via the simple command:
sudo apt-get install emacs
For a bleeding-edge release one can use the following ppa:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-elisp/ppa sudo apt-get install emacs-snapshot
If your debian based distro does not have the version of emacs you want you can build it from scratch.
sudo apt-get build-dep emacs24 -y cd /tmp/ wget http://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/pretest/emacs-25.0.93.tar.xz tar -xvf emacs-25.0.93.tar.xz cd emacs-25.0.93 ./configure make sudo make install rm -rf /tmp/emacs-25.0.93*
On systems with the Redhat package manager (such as RHEL, CentOS, and Fedora Core) Emacs can be installed via the simple command:
sudo yum install emacs
Emacs can be installed via the simple command:
sudo pacman -Syu emacs
On systems running Portage, Emacs can be installed via the simple command:
sudo emerge emacs
Works on any GNU/Linux system for getting the latest version of emacs without using the system package manager (which may be out of date) or downloading the archive or binary. To install
gsrc see it's documentation. Then:
cd gsrc make -C gnu/emacs install # add the binaries to your PATH source ./setup.sh
brew install emacs --with-cocoa # basic install # additional flags of interest can be viewed by calling `brew info emacs` brew linkapps emacs # to put a symlink in your Applications directory
sudo port install emacs
sudo pkgin -y install emacs-24.5
Precompiled app bundles for the latest stable and development versions can be downloaded at https://emacsformacosx.com.
