I am connecting from a Windows machine to a Linux server via Putty (http://blog.harang.org/?tag=putty). There I start Emacs and open a script written in the statistical language R. When I open the file, the appropriate major mode ESS is loaded and shown to be active in the tool bar. Also when I type
C-h m I get the information of the major mode and also all its keybinding. The variable
major-mode has the value
So far, so good. The problem is: None of the keybindings associated with this major mode do work. I type one of them, nothing happens except that I get the message that this keybinding is undefined. In
describe-bindings, the keybindings of the major mode are not shown. (This is also the information I get when I type
C-h k with the key sequence.)
What can I do? What is going on? Is it because of the putty emulation I am using?
