I use emacs 23.3.1 on ubuntu 12.04. I installed speedbar on it. The emacs init file looks like this :
;;; Emacs Load Path (setq load-path (cons "~/emacs-config" load-path)) ;; speedbar in the same frame (require 'sr-speedbar) (load "~/emacs-config/sr-speedbar")
emacs-config has sr-speedbar.el. I don't get any error message on load. However, speedbar is not started on loading. I have to M-x sr-speedbar-open every time I start emacs.
Also, is there a way to start sr-speedbar in buffers mode always. Right now it is in files mode so it shows the listing of the directory of the current file.
