I just tried the statement as you have it in your message. I don't know if
this is exactly what you have in your .emacs but if it is it will not work you
have an extra double quote at the end of the statement.
If you want to see how something will work paste it into the scratch buffer and
type C-j at the end of the sexp. Emacs will attempt to execute/evaluate the
expression and will display the results in the scratch buffer.

Subject: (setq load-path (cons (expand-file-name "~/.emacs.d/lisp")
I'm trying to install session.el on my SuSE Linux system. I downloaded it
The INSTALL file says:
(b) You use Emacs and install Session in your home directory:
create directory "~/.emacs.d/lisp/" and copy "lisp/session.el"
to it. Add the following lines at the beginning of your Emacs
(cons (expand-file-name "~/.emacs.d/lisp") load-path))"
I added that to my .gnu-emacs but it doesn't seem to modify the load-path
variable. I really don't want to start playing around with the load path
in the compile if I can aviod it, and I don't want to resort to having the
same *.el in multiple place, nor symlinking them. The above Lisp statement
looks like a very attractive solution. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to
Can someone clarify what behavior I should expect from that statement? Does
it work for you?
