Note that it does not replace the emacs21 binary, so you need to start it as 'emacs-snapshot-gtk'.

Likeweise you need to tell R/ESS to use emacslient.emacs-snapshot instead of emacsclient as the value of optios("editor")

Below is what one of Edge machines as work has:    

~:> ls -l /usr/bin/emacs*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 2006-04-05 12:26 /usr/bin/emacs -> /etc/alternatives/emacs
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2006-12-05 11:27 /usr/bin/emacs21 -> emacs21-x
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4412588 2006-09-15 12:35 /usr/bin/emacs21-x lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 2006-04-05 12:26 /usr/bin/emacsclient -> /etc/alternatives/emacsclient
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 7080 2006-09-15 12:35 /usr/bin/emacsclient.emacs21
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 9248 2006-09-19 16:28 /usr/bin/emacsclient.emacs-snapshot
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 32 2006-10-19 18:55 /usr/bin/emacs-snapshot -> /etc/alternatives/emacs-snapshot -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5674120 2006-09-19 16:28 /usr/bin/emacs-snapshot-gtk

Hth, Dirk
