Re: Mac OS X load path

I've read all possible solutions.

And it doesn't work.

My question is now is how do I uninstall both emacs (apple's and compiled) from my system. And then do a clean install so that I will now for sure where what is and suppose to go to and load from.

Ideal of having Emacs in Application Support is appealing to me, because I want to keep things structured OS X style =D.

With regards,

I don't understand why there is same directory tree in /usr/share and /usr/ocal/share.

Also I don't understand why do I have 4 site-lisp directories.

Because you've overwritten Apple's GNU Emacs 21.2 and you've installed some 22.1 version.

I advertise /Library/Application\ Support/Emacs, which somehow has to do with how Mac OS X handles extras, i.e. "Application Support" via -- enable-locallisppath=/Library/Application\ Support/Emacs at configuration time. If you don't want to use this extra directory, then check the value of load-path. Could be your Emacsen share one directory like /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp.



To most people solutions mean finding the answers. But to chemists solutions
are things that are still all mixed up.
