I really don't see the advantage of this script. I've also tried it
once. I merely start the daemon once I log in with 'emacs --daemon'
under Ubuntu Karmic, and that's it. You can also let that command be
executed by an auto-start script under Gnome, KDE or whatever. Once the
daemon is started, you can do 'emacsclient -c' either by using alt-F2 or
with a prepared icon.

By the way, under Ubuntu you have to take care that you start the
correct version of the client fitting to the version of the server,
since you might have more than one Emacs version installed (emacs22,
emacs23 and emacs-snapshot are available in the standard repo). In case
you have, you should start daemon and client with 'emacs.emacs-snapshot
--daemon' etc.

Good luck
