Hi Tim, I think the samall problem I wish to discuss has some relevance with what you wrote about loading emacspeak before anything else. I have been using emacspeak for almost 4 years starting from emacspeak-14. Except for this version on a Red Hat linux box, I have never heard the emacspeak startup icon: "This is emacspeak" spoken with Bach's Tocata & Fugue playing in the background. I am running a Fedora Core 3 setup and could not find anything under the /etc/ directory with emacs. But obviously the Fedora does some work when I start emacspeak because when I look at the *Messages* buffer (attached below) on line 24 there is mention of some RedHat specific functions being loaded But the top of the *Messages* buffer starts with the emacspeak startup file. Obviously your script is tailored for the debian distro. Does anybody feel like helping out? The problem is a trivial complaint but it would be nice to get the startup "jingle" back. Indeed I had forgotten about it and remembered only when a few days ago I ran the Oralux Live CD to help a blind person get started on linux etc. TIA. Cheers. Kalyan This is the *Messages* buffer immediately after I start emacspeak: (emacs -q -l /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/lisp/emacspeak-setup.el -l /home/kalyan/.emacs) Loading disp-table...done Loading tool-bar...done Loading image...done Loading tooltip...done Loading /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d/lang-coding-systems-init.el (source)...
