I'm an emacs newbie trying to make the switch; after configuring org-mode to my liking (my primary reason for switching) the next thing I wanted to do was customize the colors. I know several people have asked about getting emacs color-theme to work, but I've been searching for over an hour and so far the instructions haven't helped me so please bear with me.
I'm using GNU Emacs for OSX from here on 10.6.7.
Most instructions on the web say to start by running
sudo apt-get install emacs-goodies-el
If I were running linux that'd be no problem, but Macs don't have
apt-get that I know of so I'm trying to figure out what to do instead.
I found a copy of
color-theme.el and the
themes/ folder in a tarball here and put it in my
emacs.d/ directory. Then I added the boilerplate stuff to my
(setq load-path (append load-path (list "~/.emacs.d/themes"))) (setq load-path (append load-path (list "~/.emacs.d/color-theme.el"))) (require 'color-theme) (color-theme-initialize) (color-theme-robin-hood)
But when I load emacs I am still getting this error:
File error: Cannot open load file, color-theme
- Are there other things besides
emacs-goodies-elthat are needed for color-theme to work properly on Mac?
- If so, where can I download these files and install them without
Thanks for your help.
