11 January 2016 Basic Emacs keybindings on Linux desktop

Miss C-a, C-e in your browser and other Linux apps? You can enable the GTK Emacs key theme:

$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-key-theme "Emacs"

or if on Cinnamon:

$ gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.interface gtk-key-theme Emacs

If your desktop environment is not running gnome-settings-daemon, start it with:

$ gnome-settings-daemon
