Emacspeak in Arch Linux
Frustrated by Debian Rules which don't allow Firefox and Thunderbird because of their logos being copyrighted,, I decided to try Arch Linux.
Mind you I had found a work around with installing Firefox and Thunderbird, but I have heard that the latest GNOME Desktop offers excellent accessibility, I went ahead with installing Arch.
GNOME came up nicely - except gdm has a bug but I found a work around. ORCA doesn't work, and I wanted to see if there was an easy way with Arch's install system to install the current emacspeak from subversion.
What a disappointment. I think I might try Linux From Scratch after this.
What ARCH does have is is a choice - when you ask to install gnome, it tells you the programs that come with it and it gives you a choice. I like this. I don't want some of the standard GNOME programs because they have poor accessibility.
I guess I will bite the bullet if anyone doesn't have any ideas for suggestions on installing emacspeak in Arch. So far it doesn't work while DEBIAN works perfectly.
I guess the solution to Debian's not using Firefox and Thunderbird is to use source and compile them myself. :0)
