I've been trying to get color-theme to work on Emacs 23.4.1, but I receive the following error after launching Emacs:
File error: Cannot open load file, color-theme
I have installed color-theme via http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...e/color-theme/
Here is a portion of my .emacs file:
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/color-themes")
My color-theme.el file is located at
Any help is appreciated.
I found that my EMACSLOADPATH is pointing to /usr/local/share/blah blah blah instead of /usr/share/blah blah blah
I'll update this as I go along. As a side note, I'm using Slackware. I used a slackbuild to install this, but it installed in /usr/share instead of /usr/local/share, so it seems that I had two versions installed and libraries in only one location.
I'm currently trying to installed color-theme manually, but make or make install isn't working for this.
I was never able to overcome the compile error from color-theme so I decided to go diving into the SlackBuild. After doing so I noticed a particular line that references /usr/ and I changed it to /usr/local and this fixed the problem. Turns out Slackware is a bit weird and installed the distribution version of emacs into /usr/share and so the SlackBuild for color-theme reflected that.
