I installed elscreen through melpa & it works if I open the emacs and type M-x elscreen-start. How to start the elscreen automatically? (require 'elscreen) in .emacs does NOT automatically start the elscreen option.

    As to question number 1: How about putting (require 'elscreen) (elscreen-start) at the bottom of your .emacs? Or, how about putting one of these hooks in your .emacs along with (require 'elscreen)? (add-hook 'after-init-hook 'elscreen-start) or (add-hook 'emacs-startup-hook 'elscreen-start)

  • Welcome to Emacs.SE! Let me suggest that you break this post up into two, discrete posts that ask a single question each.
