This is my .emacs.d setup to work with the emacs-starter-kit (https://github.com/technomancy/emacs-starter-kit).
- Install Emacs 24 and checkout this repository into ~/.emacs.d (make sure you have no ~/.emacs file).
- Copy a user specific config file to your username (e.g. cp pip.el bobb.el)
- Same for the color-theme (e.g. cp color-theme-pip.el color-theme-bobb.el)
- On first run, emacs should install all the required packages; this may take a while but should result in you being in a red on black coloured scratch buffer.
