I was attempting to install ruby support into my emacs installation by following the directions at the RubyGarden. When I load a ruby file, Emacs switches to Ruby mode but doesn't do syntax highlighting. Does anybody have any insight? Here is the relevant portion of my .emacs file: (autoload 'ruby-mode "ruby-mode" "Mode for editing ruby source files") (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.rb\\'" . ruby-mode)) (add-hook 'ruby-mode-hook 'turn-on-font-lock) ;; <- Is supposed to enable font lock. (setq interpreter-mode-alist (append '(("^#!.*ruby" . ruby-mode)) interpreter-mode-alist)) (setq ruby-indent-level 4) I do not have ruby-electric.el installed, for the interested. Thank you. -Rich
