I'd like to install above recommended Common Lisp package. What is the best routine to install it on Ubuntu?
As I went through the process, I'll sumarize the complete install routine for above recommended Common LISP configuration:
Fire up a terminal:
Install Emacs (IDE):
sudo apt-get install emacs
Install SBCL (Compiler):
sudo apt-get install sbcl
Install Quicklisp (Quicklisp is a library manager for Common Lisp.)
This is done by copy-and-pasting all bold commands in the grey box here: https://www.quicklisp.org/
Install SLIME by using Qucklisp: In the terminal run SBCL:
sbcl (ql:quickload "quicklisp-slime-helper") (quit)
SBCL will warn you about having to edit your ~/.emacs file. Do not ignore it
Now inside Emacs to start SLIME type:
Which is Alt+x slime.
Now you're ready to play with LISP.
Some useful Emacs packages (plugins for Emacs) that were recommended to me are: Paredit, auto-complete and smartparens
Hope this is of help for anyone.
