Followed the Readme files instruction by adding the following lines to .emacs file in ~ directory to install/load color-theme-gnome2 upon opening emacs.

(require `color-theme)

In the **Message buffer of Emacs the following error is thrown -
"Symbol's function definition is void: color-theme-gnome2"

Color theme library is installed in the emacs load path at ./emacs-22.3/lisp/emacs-lisp/
OS: Windows XP Service Pack 3
Version 6.6.0 of Color Theme library

Have the same issue with 6.6.0, read emacs wiki page (http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/ColorTheme) to get fix as mentioned above.

Source: downloaded tarball from http://savannah.nongnu.org/files/?group=color-theme

Color theme library is installed in my home directory and appended to the load-path

OS: 2.6.28-13-generic #44-Ubuntu (Xubuntu)
Verision: 6.6.0

There is a possible error with the Instructions in the Readme File under the section "Installing a color theme". The user is instructed to edit the .emacs file to load a particular color theme upon startup of EMACS by doing the following:

(require `color-theme)

EMACS throws an error, described above in the reproducibility section, at startup.

A successful load of a particular color theme can be achieved by adding one more function to .emacs file:
(require 'color-theme)
(color-theme-initialize) ;;;added as possible fix.

Seems to load the color theme fine after adding the above mentioned function. Could be a possible fix or workaround?
