The first thing that I would check is that you have highlight-
parentheses.el in your emacs 23 lisp directory.
Depending upon how you installed emacs 23, that file (and others) may
not be installed or are not in a location that emacs 23 knows about.
The file is not part of the Emacs cvs and is not typically part of
Emacs 23 bundles that I have seen for most platforms. I don't use
Ubuntu and don't know if it has been included in emacs related .deb
files. It was not part of the Fedora emacs rpms as I recall.
You may have to download that file separately (http://nschum.de/src/emacs/highlight-parentheses/
) and use:
rather than require.
