Re: Gnopernicus, brltty and debian

Iterestingly when I finally got a sighted colleague to look at it in gnome here is what we find.

using gconftool-2 at the console the device shows as brltty however in gnome it shows as none and there is no drop down to select from. I fond that at the end of day yesterday and am looking into it further today.

Note that none of my colleagues have worked with screen reader technology before so I am having to do some interpretation of what they are reading.

Hi Tom,

Please check if braille is on in gnopernicus and brltty device is


I am using the unstable version of Debian and kernel version 2.6, brltty
3.7.2-3.1 and gnopernicus 1.0.5-1.
I am getting no response from the braille display when I type startx other
than "screen in not in text mode".  The braille display is an Alva abt34d
which works fine with brltty at the console.  Any ideas of what might be
wrong and how to solve it?  I followed the instructions on the brltty site
for setting up gnome.
