I am trying to use Webkit, but I can't get emacs to find the necessary python library EPC that I installed via pip (in Anaconda). Here is the error message:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Cannot open load file" "No such file or directory" "epc")
  eval-buffer(#<buffer  *load*> nil "/Users/evar/.emacs.d/myPackages/webkit.el" nil t)  ; Reading at buffer position 2348
  load-with-code-conversion("/Users/evar/.emacs.d/myPackages/webkit.el" "/Users/evar/.emacs.d/myPackages/webkit.el" nil t)

I am using High Sierra.

  • The mysterious "High Sierra" appears to be a version of Mac OSX. For future reference, people who don't use a Mac are unlikely to recognise names like that, so more clarity would be helpful.

  • I strongly recommend to use xwidgets-webkit instead.

require(epc) in the stack trace indicates that epc.el is not found in your Emacs load-path variable.

You'll probably want to do something like:

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/directory")

for the directory where epc.el lives.
