Emacs does not start in a new frame.
If I'm in a terminal running Bash and enter
$>emacs the editor is opened inside this terminal, and produces exactly the same behavior as
$>emacs -nw. I have what I think is an OK
:0. If I try to start it using
gmrun outside of a terminal, nothing happens.
I'm using Xmonad as a window manager. I noticed something weird: if I invoke
$> gmrun from the command line in a window, I get the small window to type in the command. Entering
emacs and hitting enter causes emacs to open inside the terminal in which the
gmrun command was executed.
What configuration items would force emacs to start without creating a new frame?
