Re: Why Can't I use BRLTTY With Gnopernicus


Those messdages about leaked references and "need to shut down linc 
connection" are nonsensical. They are supposed to be reminders to the 
maintainers, but they shouldn't be plaguing testers. They mean nothing 
except that someone needs to do more work and be a little more considerate 
of the users.

I am very annoyed at the lack of response on this list to questions about 
braille output. Surely, somebody must know something. I finally got 
Gnopernicus to work with brltty and my Braille Lite display, but the only 
keys on the Braille Lite that produce a response are the advance bars. 
Gnopernicus used to respond to almost everything.
