I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 on my laptop and I was trying get started using emacs. However, I cannot get any settings saved because it claims that it was launched with a -q flag. This behavior is the same from both command line and GUI launching. Please help.
UPDATE: The issue is gone, but I am not sure why. Even though I had the application installed, I could still add it from the software center (I installed it with
sudo apt-get install emacs) Can someone help me figure out what the hell happened?
