GNU Emacs is an extensible, customizable text editor - and more
GNU Emacs is the extensible self-documenting text editor. This package contains a version of Emacs with support for a graphical user interface based on the Lucid toolkit (instead of the GTK+ interface provided by the emacs-gtk package). Until some known GTK+ problems are fixed, this version may help avoid crashing Emacs during an emacsclient disconnect. See https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=567934 and https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85715 for more information.
