why?  will I not get speech output with emacspeak, espeakf and

but I only want festival not festival lite.
actually I don't even know if there are good voices for festival or if
viavoice can be made to work on newer distros like ubuntu 6.06.

and I have grabbed a few .deb packages from the ubuntu packages web site.
so going to try them,
else I will have to compile them myself.
