I have just downloaded swbuff.el and put it in my load-path. When I open the
file in an editor it says that I should just put:

(require 'swbuff)

in my .emacs file.

When I do that I get this error:

An error has occurred while loading `/home/johs/.emacs':

File error: "Cannot open load file", "swbuff"

To ensure normal operation, you should investigate the cause
of the error in your initialization file and remove it.  Start
Emacs with the `--debug-init' option to view a complete error


I have instead tried to write:

(provide 'swbuff)

then I emacs restarts without error but I don't know if is read at all.
