Re: emacspeak operation failure

Thanks much, that did it. Before starting, I turned speakup off with numpad. Then I started emacspeak and the espeak voice came back on saying this is emacspeak after the organ notes. Also using up and down arrows produces tones on the speaker and I can get to beginning and end of buffer that way which is correct behavior.

I'm not sure what you're referring to in the Makefile, and I'm using Ubuntu instead of Arch, but to get eSpeak working with Emacspeak, I first go into emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/linux-espeak and make the eSpeak server. I then add the following lines to my ~/.bashrc file and that's it.

I read in Makefile espeak is not enabled by default but lots of folks
use it.  How do I enable espeak?  I lost the modification line for make
disdir and when I built the failed operating emacspeak last night I did
it outside of pacman control.  Fortunately I was able to write a 933
line bash shell script to delete all emacspeak files in the outside
pacman control version so the next time I do a build everything will be
inside pacman control.  Since that bash script was as long as it was, I
was curious how long it would take to run and the answer was 25 seconds.

I kill speakup and this is running speakup_soft and start up emacspeak
I hear the organ notes and a message saying this is emacspeak and
nothing else.  So I turn speakup back on and check the screen.  I get
process speaker not running.  So I hit control-x+control-c to bail
out.  I get told processes are still running kill them y/n?  I type y
and am told to type yes or no.  I type yes and am locked in that area
and cannot exit emacspeak any ways other than the three finger salute
or hitting the power button to shut the computer down.  I did the bash
alias near the end of Makefile and got the system pointed correctly.

We may almost be home but I don't know for sure.
