Some of the GUI's features are not connected yet and for others we don't have 
the functionality implemented, yet. 
The following list shows GUI's option to configure gnopernicus.

You can also find information on

There is no problem with your config, setting the rate is just not supported 
Anyway festival should speak fast only on Solaris, on Linux you should listen 
to a voice with a reasonable rate. ( you would understand it easily). When 
"setting rate" feature will be supported in gnopernicus, the user will be 
able to ajust the rate as he/she likes it.

The cause have to be that there are no rights to access the serial port.
You will have to make yourself root and give rights for the serial port as 
follows :
	su -
	chmod 777 /dev/ttyS0 
	this is for the first serial port for Linux
	 if you want to use the second give rights to ttyS1 for Linux*/
	if you are on a sun machine  /dev/cua/a for the first serial port, or
	/dev/cua/b for the second serial port 
so gnopernicus can access the serial port.

If you are on a Solaris OS ( as I supose) this is a problem that we know 
about. (festival is not too fast and the speaking is made with a big latency. 
This is a festival problem).

Please let me know if something goes wrong.
