Using emacs 25.2.2 on Kubuntu 18.04.

Using list-packages I installed evil. Using customize-variable I added (evil-mode t) in my ~/.emacs.d/init.el file.

But still when I restart emacs, there is no trace of evil mode! list-packages shows evil as an installed package. But there are no evil commands available with M-x and evil-mode is not enabled anywhere.

What is going on here? How do I set things right?
