Do you run emacs > under X in a xterm rather than native X? No, I run emacs from an .xsession file. The last line is: exec emacs --debug-init --fullscreen Basically, this looks like running it from the console but the colors are richer, which allows me to see a little more about what is going on. It also allows me to run gui apps if necessary. If I need a gui app like firefox I open it from emacs. The only reason I do this is because I was/am having problems running youtube videos from m-player. I have no scroll bars, no menu bar, nothing but the main window and the minibuffer on the screen. I have no data to support leaving these out making emacs any faster, but it seems to do what I want it to do. As for your compile options, I did a little digging on emacswiki and it says that the font backend stuff is enabled by default since March of last year. I used the same compile options I have always and the output at the end of the configure says that dbus is enabled as well as freetype and xft. > Your CVS version also seems a little out of date. My version info is Just updated and built. I still have the same problem. I thought perhaps it had something to do with environment variables. The last time I built was under orca, from a gnome terminal which does not read .bash_profile which is where LANG and the like are defined. Just to be sure, I re-built using --enable-font-backend. Still no good, resulting in the same error. I also changed the .xsession file to run emacs with the -q option. Everything started fine. I then tried to load-file .emacs which gave me the error "invalid-function charset-dimension". Next I'm going to try a svn update of emacspeak and see what happens. I'll keep the list posted.
