Re:Emacspeak outloud server on Debian Lenny



Rob,

note that the emacspeak servers switched from using extended TCL to normal
tcl a couple of months back. This means that the program than needs to run
is tclsh and not tcl. This would be why you had to set the symlink. 

Check that you don't have the TCL_PROGRAM environment variable set to
/usr/bin/tcl and then check your startup scripts etc in case you still have
something hanging around that is making emacspeak think it has to run the
outloud server with tcl rather than tclsh. 

I can tell you that it does work. I started with a ubuntu running lenny 
the vibuntu image in fact, which is what vinux was called before ubuntu got
precious regarding their brand name!). I then did a distribution upgrade to
jaunty and will possibly upgrae to karmic when I get around to it. I'm
running karmic on a fresh non-vinux box at work. 

The only problem I had was with libtool and that has since been fixed by
Raman. So, my guess is that either there are some old settings you have
that make emacspeak look for tcl rather than tclsh.
