to switch it on. If that works, put

Maybe that works now, but I believe for the future it is better to use

    (transient-mark-mode 1)

Thanks for the pointer, but now I wonder, why would the variable
become obsolete?

The variable will not become obsolote. You can always test its value, but you should not set its value directly since transient-mark-mode is a (global) minor mode. Turning on a minor mode might do more than just set the variable.

BTW you can also set the value through

  M-x customize-option RET transient-mark-mode RET
