So, this is default my setup now: Mac OSX + Aquamacs


So, my command is basically unused in emacs. So, I need to remap control to command (UPDATE: and vice versa) ONLY for emacs, but not for other Mac application.

Is it possible?

So you want the command key to function as a control key in Emacs? Add this to your ~/.emacs file:

(setq mac-command-modifier 'control)

Awesome that worked like a charm! But, I wanted to swap the functionality, i.e. for emacs, put the functionality of command to control and vice-versa. Any suggestions on that? – zengr Jun 15 '11 at 10:16
zengr: sure, (setq mac-control-modifier 'meta) – Chris Poole Jun 15 '11 at 14:33
Done, awesome!! – zengr Jun 15 '11 at 18:09
