I am running the mac port version of emacs that I installed via homebrew (see here). I'm also trying to run the Emacs server to avoid long startup times.

To do this, I first run the server:

/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs --daemon

This process appears to complete successfully. The next step is to start an emacs client like so:

/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/bin/emacsclient -n -c

However, when I run this command, nothing happens at all. If I run the command, without the -c option, a client opens in the terminal, but I want to run Eamcs in Cocoa.

Has anyone run into this problem?
