Does Orca work in an X environment that falls short of a full Gnome desktop?
Hi Jason;

orca should work OK without having a gnome session already running. However, with recent changes to at-spi there is one caveat. Since the 'atk-bridge' no longer uses bonobo-activation to start the AT-SPI registry on-demand, some process needs to manually start at-spi-registryd before running an ATK/AT-SPI application.

On most systems, running "/usr/libexec/at-spi-registryd&" in an xterm before starting a Gnome app should do the trick. The exact path to at-spi-registryd may vary depending on your distribution.

Best regards,
