> emacs
invalid font property: (:size . 14\,xft)

I have not changed anything. I've only installed emacs, in fact this is a fresh installation. But I cannot start it because of the error above. What do I do?

Do you have some conflicting "font" properties in ~/.Xresources?

I fixed it by renaming *font to URxvt.font inside ~/.Xresources. For emacs use Emacs.font instead.
