Re: Emacspeak in Arch Linux

I can not talk much about emacspeak because I don't use emacspeak, but I can talk about orca in arch.
I had problems to run orca in arch but the problems were solved.
You can write to me directly for instructions on how to solve the problems of orca in arch.

Hello Everyone,

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)

Any suggestions?
