Re: New to Emacspeak and Emacs



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.

Hi.
I just installed the tcl8.3 package and re-ran the espeak speech server.
However, we still get the same error.  I should note that their is both
tcl8.3 and 8.4 installed on this machine--perhaps some package explicitly
depends on 8.4 though.

You can either install tcl 8.3 or change every occurance of "file0" with
"stdin" in the espeak tcl script.

Best regards, Lukas
