I would like to install emacs in LinuxMint 4.0 (Daryna).

It's in the repos so there should not be any major problem

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I still don't get it.
I go to the software portal and search for emacs but don't find anything.
Is the "repos" some other location?

Real n00b?
Well we've all been that
Repos = short for repositories
Open Synaptic (Package Manager) from the menu and search for

Code: Select all

emacs metapackage

Then install it, some dependencies will also be installed
