Re: New to Emacspeak and Emacs



Hi,
Well then, there would appear to be two solutions. If I were you, I'd just go through with a search and replace, changing all instances of file0 to stdin, as Luke mentioned previously. Alternatively, you could change #!/usr/bin/tclsh8.4 to #!/usr/bin/tcl, and remove the line from farther down in the script saying "package require Tclx".
   This second method assumes you have Tclx8.3 installed as well.
As I said, personally, I'd recommend switching to 8.4 all around. But it's your call.
Glad I could help.
Best,
Zack.

Hi Zack.
Thanks for the fast reply here.  Well, it turns out that we have the
espeak server script depending explicitily on tclsh8.4, according to the
script directive.
#!/usr/bin/tclsh8.4
If I check my path, tclsh8.4 is indeed installed here.

Hi Eric,
   Could you check the top line of the espeak server script?  Does it say
#!/usr/bin/tcl, or #!/usr/bin/tclsh?
   You might want to look into the dependencies too.
Hope this helps,
Zack.
