Moving to my first OSX laptop for work from my linux machines. I needed to fix a few things to keep me happy.
Install homebrew to get a cli based package manager
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
brew install coreutils
brew install wget
Install emacs (24+)
brew install emacs
Install X11 (xquartz) to allow X11 apps to run
- Download the pkg from http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/
You will need to update your path in order to use the nicer tools
cat << EOF >> ~/.bashrc export PATH="/usr/local/bin:$PATH" export MANPATH="/usr/local/opt/coreutils/libexec/gnuman:$MANPATH" EOF
Restart your machine.
