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?
