Re: non-X interface Emacs while under X?

I have the same issue - I hate the X version. Try putting:

alias emacs="/usr/bin/emacs -nw"

into your .bashrc (or equivalent for other shell). That's what I do.

Is there any way i can keep emacs trapped in my nice transparent console? ;)

the X interface is very ugly and not particularly useful...

The command line switch is -nw:

$ man emacs 2>/dev/null | col -b | grep -B1 -A4 -- -nw

      -nw     Tells  Emacs not to use its special interface to X.  If you use
              this switch when invoking Emacs from an xterm(1)  window,  dis-
              play  is  done  in  that window.  This must be the first option
              specified in the command line.

I don't know if there is anything you can put in your .emacs, sorry.
