Sorry for the newbie question. I have been using Aquamacs more many years. As it is not as actively developed as it used to and became increasingly buggy in the past two years I want to make the switch to Emacs.
I installed Emacs with homebrew and things are working well. However, I am struggling with setting up my keyboard. The homebrew emacs-version (emacsformacosx) has Meta on command which I like. Is there any way to set up the left option key so that it does the same as it does globally that is produce special characters e.g.
ü by typing
option + ¨ + u?
(setq ns-command-modifier 'meta) (setq ns-option-modifier 'none)
which works for the Umlauts but takes away functions from command such as open files with
command + o.
Can anyone help?
