How to change mouse cursor when holding super, meta or ctrl?

I'm afraid this is not something you could make universal, at least on the Emacs Lisp level, since there may be other code that will override such behavior. But you may try using set-transient-map to set your own keymap, which will intercept the interesting events and then re-dispatch them somehow, though it still feels like this is too difficult / would be easier to do in the C code part.

I am using emacs with prelude configuration.
It seams like Projectile is able to generate the TAGS file, but I can´t find the way to "Go to a definition" and also to come back after it.
Any help on that?

If you are working on c/c++ projects, you can try cscope.

Dear members, thank you for letting me in this community.

I'm very new to emacs (Aquamacs), been using it over a week now. and here's my milestone on org-mode:

- 5 meetings
- 6 book chapters (equivalent to 15,000 words)
- 3 todo list with 3 sections: research, teaching, and writing 

My next task will be: connecting emacs to R environment. Are there any comments about this? Is it more efficient than using the RStudio?
  
Thank you

Thanks Kaushal for the hand-holding. I will probably ask for feature in veripool.org

Is there any way to make Org mode more compatible with markdown?
I mostly just want to replace the asterisk headlines with hashmarks.

I understand there is a markdown mode which works similar to org mode, but it's not as feature rich.

+Nat Sheppard You could try changing the values of org-outline-regexp, org-outline-regexp, and org-heading-regexp and org-heading-keyword-regexp-format and so on.
Check org.el for a full list.

My earlier suggestion turns out to lack merit. I suggest either looking for a good markdown mode or if org offers something you must have, taking +Left Right advice and using the exporter.

Hi Emacs,

did you every play online the game of GO with Emacs?  Could you recommend a game server and configuration?

+Yuri Khan I  think you are right, it's not a real time server, but that fits me fine, because I want to play intermittently with a colleague from China. But I read that it should be possible to play nearly in real time if the occasion arises...

I meant cgoban(1, which might also serve as an interface to gnugo), which is free, I read cgoban2 and -3 are non-free...

Hello Guys, recently starting in Emacs, and I'm using zenburn theme, which is dark and compatible with org-mode, but I use many tables, and the theme uses green for the table borders and for all the text inside, how can i edit that theme and change only the color of the text inside, or the borders? Maybe is a noob question, but thanks for reading!

Hi Emacsers, How to customize the buffer file name in the  projectile buffer list ?  As you see from the picture below, the filename is too long to display in the projectile project buffer list.  
I can't tell the difference between a very_long_long_long_filename.h and 
very_long_long_long_filename.cpp file. How could I resolve this issue?
Thanks.

Though It will be nice to have helm-buffer-max-length dynamically depend on file names length.

Dear members, I have followed some directions on making slide in org mode, but my result (pdf) won't separate in to slides as intended. Any help would be appreciated? Thank you.

+Yuriy Pitometsu  Maybe I did not explain clearly. What I want to do is to combine helm-mini and imenu. After I enter to open a file what I selected, the imenu command can be called, subsequently. What the problem here is that it is not need to call imenu for some buffers, like `message`. So I want to write a condition to call imenu if the buffer is a file, or moreover, if it is a org file.

How do you configure your item2 (on OSX) and emacs to let Ctrl+[Shift]+arrow keys work well?
I already setup the keys preset to "xterm default" and lots of key combination are prefixed with ESC key. But it still enter ASCII codes like "[1;5D" when I use Ctrl+[Shift]+arrow key.

P.S. "C-h v/f/k" doesn't work too.

I’d add that any files containing personal passwords should have permissions 600 or 400. Many programs enforce this by refusing to work if a password file has lax permissions.

is it possible to make emacs scroll under the mouse as smoothly as macvim or sublime does? I love emacs, but the scrolling lags make it imperfect. I've tried settings like scroll-stop, scroll-margin and so on, but none of them makes me accommodated.

+Yuriy Pitometsu Well I wonder if you had tried mac vim ? As far as I observed it, the cursor always stayed visible while scrolling. Thus I think there must be a way to make the same thing happen on emacs. I think I should have some investigation on mac vim :)

That macro is four lines long and one of those lines is ",@body". I think you can cope with it. :) (More generally: the first place to call upon when looking at Emacs is the source, Lisp first, then C. Most of the Lisp-implementing bits are not that opaque, really.)

Questions  - 
 
Was wondering if there were any projects to change how key-bindings work in Emacs.  Currently Emacs has modes set key-bindings directly.  This can often conflict with different modes and user settings.  It would be more elegant if keys were mapped to a set of relation tables.  Modes would set bindings to relational keys.  The user could modify how the relational keys mapped to keyboard keys by modifying these tables interactively.  The user could also specify how fall-back would work when conflicts arise at a global rather than just mode specific level; if C-M-e is taken, then use C-S-e for example.  User set keys could take precedence over mode set keys, or whatever the user wants, rather than the current method of last code executed sets the binding.  Currently using bind-key.el, which simply adds a nice interface to the current method; and keyboard-translate, which is not as abstract as what I propose, being a static keyboard-character to keyboard-character translation table.

Thanks for the links, but my thinking is more along the lines of changing how functions such as define-key work, where the second argument is a lookup table key rather than a key binding.  Obviously this isn't something that can change easily.  Just an open idea about how to make Emacs more customizable.
