Re: trouble with installation

Thank you for your reply!

I had tried the development version and ran into the same problem, but
I finally solved it.

When I installed, either through synaptic or the method you suggest,
the files were created in usr/share/emacs/site-lisp, but my load path
was usr/share/emacs23/site-lisp.

I just added the other folder to my load path.

Thanks again for your response.
