I have been interested in Emacs for a while, since I have seen some great articles on the Internet, which demonstrates the usage of Emacs as a C/C++ IDE. Those projects are awesome, yet they are not easy to be implemented by a novice Emacs user. I got problems with whichever of them I tried to implement. I searched the Internet a lot and a lot to solve my problems. One of my problems was solved accidentally by a coincidence, it was related to ELPA. After that new problems came out. I am really stuck right now. I want to use
cmake-ide package (here) or
cpputils-cmake package (here). Could you demonstrate how to use them assuming I only have Emacs and those packages from MELPA installed, or provide some resources to know learn which are prerequisite for using them?
note1: I am using "GNU Emacs 24.5.1" on ArchLinux.
note2: I could have installed those packages. My problems start afterwards.
