I'm using the new systemd daemon option with Emacs 26. I have a problem, though. If I open a client instance (emacsclient -c) no config files (my .emacs) are loaded. So I don't see the usefulness in running Emacs as a client. Can somebody cast some light on this?

  • How do you start the emacs server? – choroba Jun 18 '18 at 16:26
  • Systemd starts it. I have created a service that starts it at boot. I followed Emacs 26's documentation: systemctl --user enable emacs. The service runs Emacs daemon with the command: /usr/bin/emacs --daemon. – NVaughan Jun 18 '18 at 16:49
  • What user is running the daemon? – choroba Jun 18 '18 at 17:50
  • I myself, I imagine, as the service is created userwise. – NVaughan Jun 18 '18 at 18:12
