serious tcl problems -- emacspeak no longer working




Your using the wrong Tcl shell. Emacpseak requires extended tcl, not
standard tcl. You need to install the tclx8.3 and tclx8.3-dev
packages. The extended tcl shell is just called tcl. The normal/basic
tcl shell is tclsh and is no use because emacspeak takes advantage of
the extended features in extended tcl which are not in standard tcl.
