I found something that looks like fun: https://github.com/ober/zone-matrix

A matrix-inspired EMACS screen saver. I need this in my life, but I can't (for the life of me) figure out how to get it to run.

I've placed the files in my ~/.emacs.d/lisp directory, and appended my init.el to include the load-path and settings per example_user_config.el, but I cannot get it to start by executing 'M-x zone'

I'm running Emacs on MSYS2 (which I believe is the bleeding edge for Windows builds nowadays).

EDIT: Solved. I needed tabbar-mode, which I found here: https://github.com/dholm/tabbar/blob/master/tabbar.el

Now I see the characters scrolling, it makes me happy!

    Please clarify what you've done. E.g. I don't know what "appended my init.el" means, and I don't know what you've tried to do to "get it to start" after you run M-x zone. – Stefan Nov 8 at 19:29
  • Modified! Sorry I was unclear; I appended to my init file what was in the example_user_config.el file, and I then tried to execute the package by doing 'M-x zone' – down3db Nov 8 at 21:18
  • Please post a stand alone answer rather than mark it solved in the question post. Self-answers are encouraged. – Dan Nov 8 at 22:35
