Re: update on speech server issue




Thanks for the suggestions.

I tried tailing /var/log/messages when I loaded emacspeak, but nothing
comes up.  In fact, if I go into /var/log and run:

% find . -exec grep emacs {} --with-filename \;

I find no instances of emacs.

I tried that, and it made no difference.  I also tried setting it with
the full path of the tcl executable and it did not help.

I still have the SuSE tcl packages removed from this system, so this SHOULD
be the only tcl binary installed.

The messages that flash by are in the very bottom window, titled *Compile-Log*
in bold.  After the "the speech server is not running" message, the final
message displayed is "Buffer *scratch* has no process"

I had tried this, and I tried it again...it still works fine.

HOWEVER, after doing some more experiments, I found that emacspeak-17.0
and emacspeak-18.0 work just fine on the system.

emacspeak-19.0, 20.0 and 21.0 do not work, they demonstrate the same problem.
