In some versions of emacs, colors work "out of the box".  In others,
you have to turn them on, and they might not work in terminal mode.

Try this:

; turn on font lock in all modes which support it

(require 'font-lock)
(global-font-lock-mode 1)
(setq font-lock-support-mode 'lazy-lock-mode)

; do as much colorizing as possible

(setq font-lock-maximum-decoration t)
(require 'ctypes)
(ctypes-auto-parse-mode 1)

For parenthesis matching stuff:

; parenthesis matching
(require 'mic-paren) ; loading
(paren-activate)     ; activating
(setq paren-highlight-offscreen t)
(setq paren-sexp-mode 'mismatch)

Once it's working, you can create colors you like.
