Hello all,

I am trying to run an emacs on a remote server, forwarding the display to my box. I am not the guy who installed emacs on that server, but I have root access if I need to fix anything. When I try to run xemacs (gnu emacs opens inside the terminal, which is not the behaviour I'm used to from another remote server, where gnu emacs opens its own window on my display properly) I get this error:

Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset

I'm using XEmacs 21.1 (patch 14) "Cuyahoga Valley" [Lucid] (i386-suse-linux, Mule) of Sat Jun 23 2001. Could anyone maybe quickly tell me where to look?

Is the DISPLAY environment variable set, before you invoke Emacs

        echo $DISPLAY

or after

        M-: (getenv "DISPLAY") RET
