I have installed: emacs-goodies-el where I can see that cua is listed,
but I still get the error.
You have to load it; make sure the .el file is in your load-path (M-x
describe-variable RET load-path) and then use (require 'emacs-goodies).
I'm guessing you're using a Debian system, so it probably installed into
your load-path and all you need is the require statement in your .emacs.

I have added this to my .emacs file:


(setq load-path (cons "~/work/mylisp" load-path))
(setq load-path (cons "/usr/share/emacs21/site-lisp/emacs-goodies-el"
load-path))

Sorry I forgot to mention: use add-to-list as in

(add-to-list 'load-path
             (expand-file-name "~/lisp/el/"))

Joel

I still get the same error. This is how my .emacs file looks:


;;; Emacs Load Path
(setq load-path (cons "~/work/mylisp" load-path))

(add-to-list 'load-path
             (expand-file-name "/usr/share/emacs21/site-lisp/emacs-goodies-el"))


;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;; Load .el files
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

(require 'emacs-goodies)




I have tried to comment out:

(add-to-list 'load-path
             (expand-file-name "/usr/share/emacs21/site-lisp/emacs-goodies-el"))

and then print the content of my load-path with:

M-x describe-variable RET load-path

and the result is:

load-path's value is
("~/work/mylisp" "/usr/share/emacs21/site-lisp/emacs-goodies-el" "/usr/share/emacs21/site-lisp/dictionaries-common" "/etc/emacs21" "/etc/emacs" "/usr/local/share/emacs/21.4/site-lisp" "/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/site-lisp" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/site-lisp/dictionaries-common" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/site-lisp/emacs-goodies-el" "/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/leim" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/toolbar" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/textmodes" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/progmodes" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/play" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/obsolete" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/net" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/mail" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/language" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/international" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/gnus" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/eshell" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/emulation" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/emacs-lisp" "/usr/share/emacs/21.4/lisp/calendar")

As can be seen the /usr/share/emacs21/site-lisp/emacs-goodies-el path is already in my load-path without adding it in my .emacs file. So the error must have something to do with the:

(require 'emacs-goodies)

command...
