I am using tramp "2.1.18-23.2" from Aquamacs 2.1 which is Emacs on my
Mac OS X.

I am trying to use tramp, but it isn't working for me, and I can't figure out
what part is wrong.  I'm trying to get files from an Ubuntu machine called 

I do C-f C-x /[acolyte] 

and I see a buffer called [acolyte]

but it is empty.  Note that I can do ssh acolyte from my Mac and it works fine
-- doesn't even ask for a password, as I have ssh-keys working.

I could post all the output from logging in to acolyte, but I doubt you want to
see that.  My shell prompt on acolyte looks like this:


How do I figure out what is wrong?  I don't know what to do or where to look to
get debug info about what might be wrong.  I can't even tell if tramp is being
run at all...

I've read most of but did not find any place
that showed me how to figure out what is wrong.

If this is covered somewhere, please just point me at the web page.  I don't
mind reading manuals...
