Re: Process speaker not running?
I did have the environment variable set accordingly and I also tested the
driver in a stand-allone mode. In fact, both the C version worked as well
as did the TCL version. A later development after posting my last message
revealed that I would always get the "process speaker not running" message
Unless I renamed my driver dtk-exp and changed my environment accordingly.
Let me be sure of something: is the environment DTK_PROGRAM? if not, what
should it be?
Thanks for the help,
