Re: [g-a-devel]Re: Why Can't I use BRLTTY With Gnopernicus


I'm glad to know that nothing has changed in BRLTTY. As I have already 
stated, keyboard emulation is not working, wereas it worked in previous 
versions of Gnome and Gnopernicus. My guess is thast BRLTTY needs to 
encode the nonmapped keycodes differently so that they will now be 
accepted as though they had come from the keyboard.

When you install Garnome-0.27.1 on your redhat 9.0 system, the make 
install in the meta/gnome-desktop will create enough for testing. It will 
install Gnopernicus, but this version of Gnopernicus doesn't support 
BRLTTY properly. For that, you need the latest version from CVS.
