GNU Emacs 22.2.1 (powerpc-apple-darwin8.11.0, Carbon Version 1.6.0)
color-theme 6.6.0

Create themes directory with two theme files.

In .emacs:

(setq color-theme-directory "~/.emacs.el/themes")
(require 'color-theme)

After the (push ...), color-theme-libraries would look like:

(("/Users/mcarland/.emacs.el/themes/color-theme-theme2.el") "/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/site-lisp/color-theme/themes/color-theme-example.el" "/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/site-lisp/color-theme/themes/color-theme-example.elc" "/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/site-lisp/color-theme/themes/color-theme-library.el" "/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/site-lisp/color-theme/themes/color-theme-library.elc")

where color-theme-theme1.el is missing (cdr?) and all but the first theme from color-theme-directory would be in a sublist (push instead of append?).

I was unable to set color-theme-directory unless I disabled color-theme-load-add-themes.

I am a very green with elisp, so this may be my mistake.

I was able to work around this by modifying color-theme.el to the following:

(defun color-theme-initialize ()
"Initialize the color theme package by loading color-theme-libraries."

(cond ((and (not color-theme-load-all-themes)
(setq color-theme-libraries
(directory-files color-theme-directory t "^color-theme")))
(setq color-theme-libraries
(append color-theme-libraries
(directory-files color-theme-directory t "^color-theme")
;; (color-theme-directory
;; (push (cdr (directory-files color-theme-directory t "^color-theme"))
;; color-theme-libraries)))
(dolist (library color-theme-libraries)
(load library)))

(when nil
(setq color-theme-directory "themes/"
color-theme-load-all-themes nil)
