1.2 Installation

Important: If you are using a version of Org that is part of the Emacs distribution, please skip this section and go directly to Activation.

If you have downloaded Org from the Web, either as a distribution .zip or .tar file, or as a Git archive, it is best to run it directly from the distribution directory. You need to add the lisp subdirectories to the Emacs load path. To do this, add the following line to .emacs:

(setq load-path (cons "~/path/to/orgdir/lisp" load-path))
(setq load-path (cons "~/path/to/orgdir/contrib/lisp" load-path))

If you have been using git or a tar ball to get Org, you need to run the following command to generate autoload information. command:

make autoloads
