    I believe there is a bug in emacs for setting the bckground
    and foreground color. I run Emacs on a laptop with Mandrke
    9.0. I can change the colors once Emacs is opened: M-x
    set-background-color, etc. but the commnd line options -fg and
    -bg do not work:

    emacs -fg gray60 -bg black filename &

    opens emacs as if the options were not put in. Could you please check
    if this is a bug or if I'm just doing something wrong. 

I can not reproduce this.  Maybe you override these values in your
.emacs.  What happens if you run

emacs -q -fg gray60 -bg black filename &
