i have come accross emacs...while googling and I hear it is a very customisable text editor.
i used ubuntu's apt-get to install emacs on my computer.
i then ran emacs but i could not understand anything... on how to change back ground and fore ground colors?
since there is only one customisation required for me....i hope you can tell me....
i want the background to be black
and i want the text to be in green...
this is the same color scheme i use in kate and gedit...

I figured it out from this site
i used color-theme-matrix...
now i have also started using emacs from terminal using
now since i have one configuration for the gui version the same thing loads up in the terminal and instead of giving me green and black it gives me blue and white...wierd.....
so i was hoping i could split the configuration into two and depending on whether i am using terminal or the gui
anyone knows how i can split the configuration into two and then pick one when i start emacs?

Yeah, you can do it in your .emacs file:
;; X windows theme
;; terminal mode coloring theme
