Re: 1. Doubletalk install 2. missing X file 3. DOS
All the emacspeak files, including the emacspeak-dt package, are
available at the blinux ftp site, ftp://leb.net/pub/blinux/. There is
also a new emacspeak-dt-tcl package (implemented in TCL rather than
C), which I think works better.
If you have installed a package called emacs-19.34-no-x11, it should
have installed either a binary named "emacs" which does not use X
windows, or a symbolic link named "emacs" which points to such a
binary. You can check what "emacs" is, using the "which" command.
Here is what it says here:
vanzandt:~$ which emacs
vanzandt:~$ ls -l /usr/bin/emacs
-rwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1810004 Mar 16 1997 /usr/bin/emacs
As you can see, "emacs" is a binary file. On the other hand, "awk" is
a symbolic link which eventually points to a program named "mawk":
vanzandt:~$ which awk
vanzandt:~$ ls -l /usr/bin/awk
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 May 10 1997 /usr/bin/awk -> /etc/alternatives/awk
vanzandt:~$ ls -l /etc/alternatives/awk
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 May 10 1997 /etc/alternatives/awk -> /usr/bin/mawk
vanzandt:~$ ls -l /usr/bin/mawk
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 98996 Mar 7 1997 /usr/bin/mawk
If you need to create a symbolic link yourself, you can do something
ln -s emacs-19.34-no-x11 /usr/bin/emacs
In the Emacspeak-HOWTO, I suggest that you can learn emacs by running
it under DOS. However, I expect you to use a DOS screen reader. I do
not think Emacspeak has been run under DOS.
I hope this helps.
