Re: Emacspeak installation information.

Looking at the instructions you followed, there is no make install step for emacspeak.

Get back to the directory were you did the "make emacspeak" command and from that location, issue the command "make install". See if that fixes things for you.

Could it be under your own home directory?  If you installed mlocate and ran updatedb before now why not try locate emacspeak|less and see what shows up where?

Greetings Greg,

Thank you for your quick response. I looked in all of those paths, but
the script was not to be found! Calling `whereis' and `which' yielded
no results either. I know very little where subversion and manual
compilation are concerned, but is it at all significant that there is
only a `make install' direction for the espeak server and not for
emacspeak itself? If it is at all helpful, I am using ubuntu-14.04 on
a Thinkpad T420S.

Thank you so much.

Hi Hwaen,

That file is not a binary but a script.
Depending on your setup, it could land in different locations.  If it is
not in /usr/bin, have a look in /usr/local/bin.  That is the next most
likely spot. If not, try /usr/bin/X11/emacspeak.

Or, you could ask your system to tell you. Try the commands:

   whereis emacspeak


   which emacspeak

"whereis" (where is) looks in a bunch of standard locations.
"which" looks on your path for the first occurrence it finds.

Let us know what you discover.

Greetings All,

In an effort to obtain the very latest from emacspeak, I thought to
follow the instructions given at this link:


They are written quite succinctly, and all was going well until I hit
step 9. I realized that there was in fact no file called
/usr/bin/emacspeak. Surely this binary file exists somewhere within
the original emacspeak directory tree? But I have no idea where to
look for it. I would be most grateful for any help.

Thank you so much.
