Re: Orca orca on ubuntu

Hi Joanie,

Well, I just followed tom's info and advice, all seems to go as planned I ran an install of build-essentials python-dev 2.4, automake 1.9, and gnome devel. I then compiled orca 0.2.5 and I launched it from the terminal as he said, and I can see enough to see the orca prefs window comes up but no speech however gnopernicus will speak for me thought hat has it's own issues. Let me take a look at that post.

So what am I doing wrong now?

Hi Cody. On my desktop I built Orca from sources, got that same error,
and was equally puzzled.  I suppose in an ideal "Linux for Human Beings"
world, there is no need to compile stuff. <smile>  Anyway, I installed
gcc and then tried again and got a couple of different warnings which
totally escape me now. But suffice it to say there were a few other
packages that needed obtaining first.

On my laptop, however, I got 2.5 up and running almost instantly thanks
to Luke's making the packages available.  Read his original post:

I think you'll find it easier than building.

Take care.

thanks, I will compile orca from sources. I will need to update, as I have already tried to install via sources and already saw it wouldn't work which sent me for a loop but since you explained that, I understand now. Also, how
does any linux distribution not come with a c compiler? when I tried to
compile orca it gave me an error saying no c compiler found. beets me but
