RE: emacspeak-26.0 on ubuntu



Yeah, a bad habit I've picked up using ubuntu.   
I invoked emacspeak without sudo and I found out that the beep is being
caused by a missing g-client.  I downloaded g-client and I've placed it
under site-lisp, I'm assuming that emacs should see it there.
I'm still getting the g-client missing, I guess I've got to get it on
the load-library path list, I can't remember how to do this.
Any ideas what else could be wrong?
Thanks,
j

*Whatever else may be wrong, you should *never* run emacs as root
