You can always

sudo chown -hR username .emacs.d

In any case, creating the directory .emacs.d and making a new init.el inside it shouldn't foul anything up. Then you could proceed with making your init.el point to lilypond-mode when you want to use it. Also, if you open up Emacs and start working with files, it might automatically make you a new auto-save-list (and a new .emacs.d for that matter).

After you install LilyPond, you'll have all the files you need for lilypond-mode to work right there in your installation directory. You'll just need to tell Emacs where to locate them.

In your .emacs.d directory you'll need a file called "init.el" It may already be present. If it's not, create it.

Did you mean .emacs?  .emacs.d (in my home directory) is owned by root.

.emacs.d is a directory, .emacs is a file.


For some reason your permissions are not correct: .emacs.d should be owned by you, not root.

That's what I would have thought.

This is the way it is on both my Debian sid systems. On both these systems .emacs.d contains the directory auto-save-list both of which are owned by root.

On this, my home system, I just removed .emacs.d and reinstalled emacs. Now there is no .emacs.d. I don't understand how .emacs.d would have been owned by root on two different systems since I would never do it that way.

I will work on this and get back to the list.

I am still concerned why AU 2.2.1 doesn't seem to make sense.
