I am new to emacs. I want to install paredit mode on emacs 24. I am using Melpa. When i do M-x package-install RET paredit RET or try to install it from package-list-package i see the error in the minibuffer:

Cannot open load file: no such file or directory, paredit

What should i do to get it?


You should do M-x list-packages. Then do C-s to search for paredit. If it does not appear in the list, then your package source is not configured properly and you are not getting the list you are expecting. I just checked melpa on my local and paredit is present, so your invocation should have worked.
