Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Emacs is a popular and powerful text editor, developed by GNU. The latest version available is Emacs 24.3.
In this article I will show you how to install Emacs 24.3 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it is available via some third party PPA, installing Emacs 24.3 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa, update the local repository index and install the emacs24 package:
