I use Emacs within Terminal on my MacBook. I have configured Emacs to use the color-theme package. I prefer the "whateveryouwant" theme, which has a white background. Incidentally, I also have a white background in my Terminal sessions.
Now, after upgrading to Snow Leopard, my Emacs background is grey. This is annoying.
I'm running GNU Emacs 22.3.1.
How can I make my Emacs background white?
The emacs background is white if I start with emacs with 'emacs -q'. When I have an .emacs that only contains this:
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/color-theme/") (require 'color-theme) (color-theme-initialize) (color-theme-whateveryouwant)
the background becomes grey.
I tried recompiling the latest version of color-theme by typing 'make', and I get this error message:
Any idea why? Seems to be that installing Snow Leopard installed a new emacs, which doesn't like color theme?
Even more info
I still have not fixed the grey background. I did fix the compile errors with these changes:
diff --git a/color-theme/themes/color-theme-example.el b/color-theme/themes/color-theme-example.el index f73b4f6..1961a01 100644 --- a/color-theme/themes/color-theme-example.el +++ b/color-theme/themes/color-theme-example.el @@ -1,4 +1,5 @@ (eval-when-compile + (add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/color-theme/") (require 'color-theme)) (defun color-theme-example () diff --git a/color-theme/themes/color-theme-library.el b/color-theme/themes/color-theme-library.el index d194708..edc7d94 100644 --- a/color-theme/themes/color-theme-library.el +++ b/color-theme/themes/color-theme-library.el @@ -28,6 +28,7 @@ ;; Code: (eval-when-compile + (add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/color-theme/") (require 'color-theme)) (defun color-theme-gnome ()
Unfortunately, I still get a grey background instead of white whenever color-theme is initialized.
