Re:Emacspeak outloud server on Debian Lenny



Hello Ramon, Tim, and list,

No, that doesn't seem to be the answer.  I have tcl8.4 installed, and
the TCL_PROGRAM  environment wasn't set, although I've now set it to
/usr/bin/tclsh to be sure.  

Also, I tried reverting to emacspeak 28.0 and tcl8.3, tclx8.3.  This
gave the same result:  the server compiled OK in the linux-outloud
directory, ./ outloud and tcl outloud spoke the welcome message, but
still the "process speaker not running" result on starting emacspeak.  

I must be missing something somewhere.
