I'm running the latest distro of Kubuntu with KDE4.1. I recently installed the emacs text editor. At first everything worked just fine, and I started trying to do a few tweaks in my ~/.emacs file, but now every time I open emacs it opens the ~/.emacs file. If I open it with the normal "emacs" it opens the ~/.emacs file. If I open it with something like "emacs -nw .bashrc", it opens two windows in the konsole, one with .bashrc, one with ~/.emacs. If I open the .emacs file with it, it opens two windows in the konsole, both looking at the .emacs file. I have no idea how to turn that off. I would appreciate any help you may can offer.

I figured out the problem, I had misnamed an alias I had created to edit my .emacs file.
