I'm trying to install the org-bullets mode and after pasting the install code given in the GitHub's site in .emacs, and paste the .el file into the home directory, I get this result.:

Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading ‘c:/Users/nazao/AppData/Roaming/.emacs’:

File is missing: Cannot open load file, No such file or directory, org-bullets

To ensure normal operation, you should investigate and remove the
cause of the error in your initialization file.  Start Emacs with
the ‘--debug-init’ option to view a complete error backtrace.

Is this a problem with my load-path? What can I do?

I'm using Windows 10.

  • It seems that the problem is related just to your load-path. – user12563 Jan 17 '19 at 9:55

It sounds like you've saved the org-bullets.el file somewhere that isn't on your load-path. I don't know where the home directory is on Windows, but you'll need something like the following in your .emacs:

(add-to-list 'load-path "c:/Users/nazao/AppData/Roaming/")

This assumes that org-bullets.el is in c:/Users/nazao/AppData/Roaming/. If it's somewhere else, modify accordingly.

org-bullets is also available in the MELPA repository, so you could install it using the Emacs packing system instead of doing it by hand. See the "Getting Started" section of the linked page for details.
