Re: How to install emacs server on ubuntu

I tried following this, I want emacs daemon starts/kills automatically:
http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/emacsd, which I did this (as root).
  1. cp emacsd /etc/init.d/
  2. chmod 755 /etc/init.d/emacsd
  3. update-rc.d emacsd defaults
But I still get this error when I 
$ emacsclient -c examples.desktop 
emacsclient: can't find socket; have you started the server?
To start the server in Emacs, type "M-x server-start".
emacsclient: error executing alternate editor "emacs -Q"

Thank you for any help.

Well? Did you try ;-)

Thing is that the client needs a cookie file to know "where" the server
is (and to show the server that it's allowed to). So, provided this
server is running, it has put this cookie file somewhere (typically in
your home dir, in emacs.d/server/server). I don't know how Ubuntu
customizes this in partticular.
