Re: installation help



Hi Chuck,

Your problem is that you put the command to start emacspeak in the
/etc/rc.local file, which is executed *before* /etc/profile.  /etc/profile
is executed when you login; /etc/rc.local is executed right before the
login prompt is shown.  So put the line to start emacspeak in
/etc/profile, and as long as you're the only user on the system, you'll be
OK.

In /etc/rc.local you should put a line to speak some kind of message
saying you can log in.  Maybe something like this:

echo "Ready to log in." >/dev/dtlk

After all of this is set up and working, you won't need to login from
another PC anymore.

I hope this helps,
Matt
