In my latest ubuntu box,
When I type for example
emacs ~/.bashrc, Emacs will start but not open
.bashrc. This is true for any file I pass in. I've used Emacs for several years, and have never experienced this problem before.
(global-font-lock-mode 1);;to my .emacs file, and Emacs does recognize it, for example.
"(C++/; Abbrev)", but it won't do syntax highlighting.
If you can solve any of these problems, it will be very appreciated. The following is my machine's configuration:
