Instal color-theme per http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/ColorTheme:

In .emacs:

; Add color theme path to load path
(add-to-list 'load-path' "~/elisp/color-theme/themes")

Successfully installed color-theme with the following instructions from http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/ColorTheme:

M-x load-library RET color-theme RET M-x color-theme-select RET

If I select a color theme (my example here is "Deep Blue") using M-x color-theme-select, everything in the theme loads correctly.

However, I want the theme to automatically run on startup, so I put the following in my emacs (per EmacsWiki):

(require 'color-theme)
(setq color-theme-is-global t)

The theme only partially loads. The background color is correct, and a few items (preprocessor directives [I'm in c-mode], doxygen comments, select keywords [NULL, false]) load their respective color correctly, but everything else is the default text color. Strings, comments, types, variables, most keywords (static, typedef, enum, if, else, void), and function names all fail to be displayed in the correct color.
