How do I switch between buffers using keyboard shortcut?

C-left or C-right don't work for me. :?

Re: How do I switch between buffers using keyboard shortcut?

Someone just asked this, but I'll give you my take.  The standard way is
C-x-b , then type the buffer name or press enter for the default.  If
you install swbuff (http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/SwBuff), then
add the below to your .emacs file, those shortcuts will work.  Tell me
if you need more help:

(require 'swbuff)
(global-set-key [?\C-x left] 'swbuff-switch-to-previous-buffer)
(global-set-key [?\C-x right] 'swbuff-switch-to-next-buffer)

What is the output of:

     C-h k C-x <left>

and

     C-h k C-x <right>

?

Re: What's wrong with this lisp code in my init file?!

I love all this lisp stuff. I left my Gnu Emacs LISP book (paid-for
version) at a different house, but I may go ahead and print out the PS
version from the Web.

However, solving my problem turned out to be much simpler, basically
because of a dumb error. After some fumbling around I realized that the
Cygwin setup just needs -

(setq printer-name "//defuse/Printer2")
(setq ps-printer-name t)

- for postscript printing, and doesn't need to call to gsprint - some
kind of postscript translation is already built into Cygwin. So my
total code snippet that keeps both Windows Emacs and Cygwin console
Emacs happy looks like this:

(setq printer-name "//defuse/Printer2")
(setq ps-printer-name t)
(if (eq window-system 'w32)
   (setq ps-lpr-command "c:/Program Files/Ghostgum/gsview/gsprint.exe"))

Oops sorry, just realize that you are using an Emacs version <
22.0.50. These binding won't work.

The really sad thing is that the department, due to mainly economic
pressure, has moved from core comp. sci. courses to more of what I
would call IT courses. All the academics are now windows users and
from talking with the sys admin who is still there, instead of getting
really interesting questions or projects, such as setting up a beowulf
cluster or helping to improve new signal processing algorithms or
hardware designs etc, the questions/problems are now basic end-user
support problems, like how do I configure outlook or why won't my
anti-virus software run etc. Where once upon a time there was a number
of what would be called emacs "power users" who would often be
swapping bits of elisp and writing custom elisp packages to use in the
department, its now just office documents, abstract misguided
ramblings about DRM, ebusiness and enterprise management!

I must admit feeling a bit the same. At first, I thought beagle was
going to be good, but I'm not that impressed wiht it and it wouldn't
support my VM mail folders. I'm also not impressed with Novell's
"deal" with MS over patents and wonder about the future of mono.

Now I'm off to check out Tracker!

Glad you like it.

It includes a cli tool `tracker-search'.
