Hi all,

I'm running slackware 12.2

I installed color-theme.el. I mean I copied it to /usr/share/emacs/22.3/lisp and /usr/share/emacs/22.3/site-lisp (what's the difference between the two directories?).
Then I ran 'make' and 'make install'
Code:
Autoloads up to date. Put the following lines in your configuration
file (~/.emacs for a single user) :


(require 'color-theme-autoload "color-theme-autoloads")


In color-theme-install-variables:
color-theme.el:1340:10:Warning: `make-variable-frame-local' is an obsolete
    function (as of Emacs 22.2); explicitly check for a frame-parameter
    instead.

make: *** No rule to make target `color-theme.info', needed by `install-info'.  Stop.
As they suggested, I added
Code:
(require 'color-theme-autoload "color-theme-autoloads")
to ~/.emacs, which looks as follows:

Code:
(custom-set-variables

  ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.
  ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
  ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
 '(inhibit-startup-screen t))
(custom-set-faces
  ;; custom-set-faces was added by Custom.
  ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
  ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
 )
(require 'color-theme-autoload "color-theme-autoloads")
I can change the color themes from emacs, however, what I need to do is:

M-x load-library RET color-theme
M-x color-theme-select RET
and choose one of the themes.

How can I save one of the themes as a default theme eg. color-theme-word-perfect so that it would start up using this particular theme.

thanks
