I have downloaded and put the dired+.el file into
and added the following code to the init file
(add-to-list 'load-path "/Users/ri/.emacs.d/elisp") (require 'dired+)
When I start Emacs there are no errors, everything loads as it should. But whenever I try to run
it asks me for a buffer name and I type something like
new and then it loads what it looks like regular Dired. When I
C-g, the system prints in the minibuffer
Reading buffer: No such file or directory, /Users/ri/new
How can I run Dired+ properly?
EDIT (after reading the answers here and reading up on Dired and Dired+)
(the original question was "How to run Dired+?")
My original thinking was that Dired+ was another program, basically like PathFinder to MacOS built-in Finder. That's why I thought I needed to launch it, and the most "obvious" command seemed to be
Now I see that this is an "extension" to Dired that enhances its features. So i guess the proper question that I wanted to ask is:
How to make sure I'm running Dired+?
Is there a command or a feature that tells me that I successfully loaded and using Dired+?
For example when I run Sunrise Commander, the interface is completely different so it visually tells me that the extension is running.
