I've just installed emacs 24 on 12.04 following the instructions here: http://www.mikeyboldt.com/2011/11/30...-24-in-ubuntu/ and though it installs and I can run it from the terminal, I can't get an icon for the app to work in the launcher. I.e. after the first launch, an icon does appear (and I was able to "lock" it in the launcher), but clicking on it doesn't switch me to emacs, nor does an emacs icon show up when switching between applications with alt-tab.
Also, after closing down the app, clicking on the icon that was put in the launchbar, doesn't actually launch emacs.
Where do I find error logs to diagnose this kind of problem? Anybody had something similar happen?
