Hi everybody. I am new to this list and need some help.
I am attempting to run a RedHat v7.3 system on my computer. It is a custom
built computer with a duron 900mhz processor in it. the HD is split in
half between windows ME and linux RedHat 7.3.
I heard about emacspeak from another mailing list i am on and thought i
would give it a try. Anyways... here is my problem.
I have a creative '97 internal on board sound card that redhat recognizes as
one of its supported devices. When i went through the install docs on
emacspeak web site it told me I needed to get emacspeak ViaVoice 18.104.22.168 tcl
8.3.2-7mdk tk 8.3.2-7mdk and tclx 8.3.2-7mdk (all of the tc tasks i
couldnt find the exact match but I did find a version of them higher than
those). I proceeded to install the tcl tclx and tk tasks. After that
I installed ViaVoice the way I was told and then emacs 16.0.1 after that.
The system told me that all of the installs were installed
correctly. Then i did the test they told me to do in the book by running the
runcmdlinespeak script. It worked that time. I tried then to log in to
my system as my normal user and typed emacspeak at the prompt. When I got
into emacspeak it said "process speaker not running". I su'd to root found
out i forgot to add export TDK_PROGRAM and TDK_PROGRAM=outloud to the
/etc/profile script. I added those lines and went back to normal user,
typed emacspeak and still no "talking" if you want to call it that. after
i ran the second test "tcl outloud" in the dir they told me to go to (i
what it was right now) it told me "tcl: -- outloud: file not found". The
install book for emacspeak also said that if this test failed it didn't mean
that all of the install was failed. i went back to normal user and typed
emacspeak again. Now all i get on the screen is the emacs windows and all
my computer does now is beep at me.
anyways.. after such a long winded explanation of the problem and what I had
done to this point.. does anybody know whats wrong or what to do now??
sorry again for the long message but i figured the more detail the better to
help fix a problem... and thanks for the help if you can give it...
