Re: prereqs in Ubuntu

Wiki updated.

I have a couple of wrinkles on Ubuntu. With sound juicer playing a CD
LSR starts OK but speech just didn't work. Worse when killing you get
in a state when each system event takes some 7 seconds to be processed
and it's minutes before LSR finally exits. I can raise a bug if you

The other issue is that  'python' fails with device
warnings for no input and output and no speech so I guess install does
something important on Feisty.

Cool. I'll update our wiki, unless you have already.

Correct. I think automake generates pyc and maybe pyo files from
source during make. I think the translation files are also compiled.
But, beyond that, it's Python. Compiling doesn't mean much. :)

Good to hear espeak and the magnifier worked with zero config. Ctrl+Z
definitely does hang everything. This is a known AT-SPI registry bug
that's tough to crack.
