I can 't tell.  It 's on a computer of a friend of mine. I didn't see
it myself.  But she told me that c-@ did work. I know about
transient-mark-mode but that isn't the problem.

Maybe it has to do something with the window manager.

But still to test I would like to bind c-spc to something else.

and I would like to know how to it so that it works under X.

thanks in advance,

Pieter
