On Windows 10, I have installed both emacs and cygwin, from their latest releases.

When in Cygwin terminal I run

$ emacs -nw
emacs: standard input is not a tty

How can I make emacs run inside the Cygwin terminal?

Thanks.

  • Are you running cygwin emacs ? – matzeri Feb 20 '17 at 16:45
  • No. I am running emacs installed for Windows. Is it possible to run that emacs in cygwin? – Tim Feb 20 '17 at 22:41

Install Emacs for Cygwin. Run the apropriate setup tool (as mentioned at https://cygwin.com/install.html) and select the Emacs package that you'd like to install. If you haven't installed Emacs before in Cygwin, choose "Not Installed" from the "View" and search for "emacs".
