My computer crashed whilst using emacs to ssh open a file. This was not related to emacs but an overheating problem. Since then emacs hangs every time I try and open a remote file using ssh
I press ctrl-X ctrl-f
then type :
But the colon never appears and emacs hangs.
I have tried copying in the path I want to open and it still hangs.
I have tried using emacs in the terminal with the -nw option it still hangs.
I can still open normal files.
I am using ubuntu 16.04
I am an emacs beginner so please bear that in mind in your answers.
