Not sure where you get your org-mode, but unless you are using the
org-mode that was bundled with your emacs, this may not be enough:
you might have to do some org-mode initialization (hence the suggestion
for a minimal .emacs file below).

My advice would be to leave org-crypt to one side until you can get the
simpler test above to pass.

Yes, it might: Eric Fraga reported a problem where an error that's
caught causes buffer initialization to not run the hook:


That *might* happen with your error too, although I cannot find the error
message either in current org-mode or current-emacs. Maybe I'm looking
in the wrong place, but which version of org-mode and which version of
emacs are you running?
