emacs, X, and Alt key
I just installed Debian 1.3.1 on my Pentium-133 machine.
I used dselect's FTP mode to install emacs-19.34, X, and AfterStep.
My problem is that *neither* `Alt' key is being interpreted as `Meta'
by emacs. AfterStep's `Alt-Tab' combination works well enough to switch
I much prefer `Alt-x' to `Esc-x' as a means of entering an emacs command.
But the `Alt' key is not functioning as `Meta'. Has anyone else seen this
behavior? Surely it should not be the default behavior, but I have done
very little customization and am inclined to suspect that it is. Yuck.
I would appreciate any assistance.
