Re: Configuring Gnopernicus to run with Dectalk software

Hi Steve,

Once you have installed DECTalk (libraries go into /usr/lib), you must modify your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include /usr/lib, and then recompile/reinstall gnome-speech. gnome-speech only generates drivers for those TTS engines it can find at compile time.

Once you've done all that, verify that DECtalk is seen by gnome-speech by running `test-speech`. If all that works, you should see it just fine in Gnopernicus.
