Re: Changing Startup Key



OK, I looked over that info page but am still confused.  It mentions a
variable, not a keymap.  I tried variants of global-setkey but to no
avail.  A couple times, I got an error saying non prefix assigned or
something.  I also tried doing a (setq "M-s" to the variable
emacspeak-prefix) but the variable got updated but no key assignment.
I've done key assignments in the past with global-set-key with no
problems so what am I missing here?
