I have some settings in .Xresources for emacs. Namely:

Emacs.font: Monospace-10:antialias=True:pixelsize=14
Emacs.menuBar: off
Emacs.toolBar: off
Emacs.verticalScrollBars: off

This worked fine on 11.10. But in 12.04, the toolbars are back! Noooo! What's going on?

I tried moving the settings to .Xdefaults but that didn't work. I tried changing Emacs to Emacs23 as I saw suggested somewhere. Nothing seems to help.


I needed to use Emacs23 instead of Emacs. For this to take effect I needed to restart X. (Or you can just run 'xrdb -merge .Xresource' so the changes will take effect immediately)
