Re: Installing probs

I had a minor problem with the emacspeak startup script:
Header says: #$Id: emacspeak.def,v 8.560 1998/10/11 19:46:58 
This script is included into emacspeak-9.0-2.noarch.rpm

I got an error message at the 'if' loop.

So I changed 
if [ $1 != "-q" ] ; then INIT...
if [ "$"1 != "-q" ] ; then INIT...

And if you are running always the same synthesizer, defining the
DTK_PROGRAM var in the script makes life easier.
I'm running emacspeak with the mbrola server and it runs great.
So I put an 'export DTK_PROGRAM=mbrola' at the beginning of emacspeak.
