1.I downloads package from this: https://github.com/auto-complete/auto-complete

  1. Type: M-x load-file RET ~/auto-complete-master/etc/install.el RET
  2. install to: ~/.emacs.d/ RET

Installation Result show:

Successfully installed!

Add the following code to your .emacs:

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d")
(require 'auto-complete-config)


However, I don't see characters AC in mode-line. I type: M-x auto-complete-mode, but it show: [No match]

What problem with my emacs? (GNU Emacs 23, Ubuntu 14.04)

    Did you add that code to your .emacs and then restarted Emacs?

  • Have you tried disabling other modes you might be running to identify conflicts with auto-complete? In my experience, auto-complete is incompatible with many other modes.
