I'm trying install spacemacs on elementary OS,

emacs --version: GNU Emacs 24.3.1

emacs --daemon

    Is git-gutter+.el[c] in your load-path? If not, put it there. – Drew Jan 23 '16 at 21:03

    git-gutter+ requires Emacs 24.4 or higher version. – syohex Jan 24 '16 at 0:00
  • @Drew I'm new in emacs/spacemacs in general, how should I do it? – Mateus Vahl Jan 24 '16 at 0:51
  • @syohex I just update/build Emacs to 24.5.1 and get same error. – Mateus Vahl Jan 24 '16 at 0:51

    Move git-gutter+.el[c] to a directory that is in your load-path (a variable you can set in your init file. To find out about it: (1) Use C-h f load-path. (2) Use C-h r i load-path to read about it in the Emacs manual. – Drew Jan 24 '16 at 2:00
