After the update, I can't start Emacs from the icon anymore. The
command I have for it is the following:
C:\Cygwin\bin\run.exe -p /usr/bin bash -l -i -c "emacs -display
I don't think this has anything to do with emacs. There have been
several reports of problems with run-1.3.0-1. Try downgrading to the
previous version of run, or switch to run2.
I first tried just changing the command line to "run2". No change.
run2 is not a drop-in replacement for run. If you want to use it, you
have to install the run2 package and read the documentation. Or you
could run the script /usr/bin/make-emacs-shortcut, which creates a
shortcut that uses run2.
I already had run2 installed. I ran "make-emacs-shortcut". I moved the resulting shortcut to the desktop, giving it a new name. I double-clicked it. Nothing happened. I than created a cmd window and pasted in the command line from the shortcut and ran it. Nothing. I then pasted in the command line from the old shortcut, and Emacs came up.
I'd like to find out what went wrong with the shortcut created by
make-emacs-shortcut. What's the target? And what are the contents of
the emacs.xml file that it uses?
