Another thing I forgot to mention is the emacs version I use (soory for that):

Xemacs 21.4.15

I am not sure, what options you mean. gnuclient is installed. edit(anova) returns:

emacs: Terminal type emacs is not defined.
If that is not the actual type of terminal you have,
use the Bourne shell command `TERM=... export TERM' (C-shell:
`setenv TERM ...') to specify the correct type.  It may be necessary
to do `unset TERMINFO' (C-shell: `unsetenv TERMINFO') as well.
Error in edit(name, file, title, editor) : 
	problem with running editor emacs

page(ls) opens a new frame (ls.rt) showing the ls() function code.

It says (greyed out): No other R or Sqpe versions
