I have just started using Melpa, and I installed the first package. The package though goes to the folder
but I would prefer if it went to my .emacs.d/packages folder.
Is there a way to do that or is it not advisable for some reason? If not advisable, is there a way to ensure that if I use another computer that I still have that package installed so that the configurations are the same?
This is what I put on my .emacs file to get Melpa working as per this answer
;; Package installation - MELPA (require 'package) ;; You might already have this line (add-to-list 'package-archives '("melpa" . "https://melpa.org/packages/")) (when (< emacs-major-version 24) ;; For important compatibility libraries like cl-lib (add-to-list 'package-archives '("gnu" . "http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/"))) (package-initialize) ;; You might already have this line
