What the original poster is trying to say is that the GUI should warn
if the required magnifier components are not available at runtime.  It seems
srcore already detects this, but the GUI does not get the information to
the user.

So, and here is where I start to get pissed.  Get your facts straight man.
This is flat out wrong.  Debian was the first distribution to support brltty
in gnopernius out of the box.  AFAIR, Ubuntu deliberately broke this
functionality when they copied over my packages.
But that is not debians (or my) fault.
