;; The ess package follows the Debian/GNU Linux 'emacsen' policy and
;; byte-compiles its elisp files for each 'emacs flavor' (emacs19,
;; xemacs19, emacs20, xemacs20...). The compiled code is then
;; installed in a subdirectory of the respective site-lisp directory.
;; We have to add this to the load-path:
(concat "/usr/share/" (symbol-name debian-emacs-flavor) "/site-lisp/ess"))
;; As ess_5.12-1 we also link the uncompiled code into that directory so no need to load it
;; Put the uncompiled code in the path too
;; (setq load-path (cons (concat "/usr/share/"
;; (symbol-name debian-emacs-flavor)
;; "/site-lisp/ess") load-path ))
