View Full Version : any assistance? Cygwin

26-09-2005, 04:58:31
so I am using Linux at work right now

I am going to install linux on a home computer, but haven't done so yet..

so I Was checking out whether I can do what I want, using Cygwin

what I want is to be able to ssh into the cluster (remotely)

then be able to run emacs from within..

the problem, is that it runs it in the window.. which doesn't allow me to use the file and other buttons

and I am sure there is keyboard shortcuts, but I would like to be able to use my mouse, like I am use to

If you install X-Window on Cygwin, you can connect to the Linux desktop (if they'll let you) and then run EMACS as usual. I don't know how to do that though.

If all you want is to SSH from a Windows machine, why just not use PuTTY (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/)?
