I would like to run two different
emacs on the same Linux desktop (Debian/Sid/x86-64) running some XFCE4 desktop.
The first is a latest emacs snapshot compiled from source code every morning (currently git commit
% /usr/local/bin/emacs-trunk --version GNU Emacs 28.0.50
The second is the regular Debian emacs (package
emacs-gtk, version 1:26.3+1-2) so :
% /usr/bin/emacs --version GNU Emacs 26.3 Copyright (C) 2019 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
Actually, I want to have one background color on one
emacs for the Bismon project, and another background color on another
emacs for the RefPerSys project (both being GPLv3+ for Linux). So I was thinking of starting both:
cd $HOME/bismon ; /usr/bin/emacs -bg ivory & cd $HOME/refpersys ; /usr/local/bin/emacs-trunk -bg azure &
and using also
/usr/bin/emacsclient for the first, and
and I want to share the same
$HOME/.emacs configuration file between both. Of course both
emacs-trunk are started from the same terminal and
zsh shell process.
Is that easily possible?
