Re: Orca on Edgy -- update

Hi Henrik.  I just gave it a try.  This is awesome!!  

I was wondering.... Would it be worthwhile to have a system beep occur
when the initial install screen appeared?  That would help address the
problem of how to know when it's time to press F5 if you can't see the
screen.  And, to be honest, there have been more than a few occasions
when I've booted my laptop from the live CD, turned away briefly, and
then discovered that I had to reboot because the install screen came and
went before I could give it the "noapic" option.  Had a system beep
grabbed my attention.... :-)

What version of Orca will be on the live CD post RC?  One of the reasons
for my query is that Rich fixed the problem of the Orca Preferences
dialog appearing but not automatically getting focus.  It would be cool
if when Orca started, the Preferences dialog had focus so that the user
knows its there.

Thanks and take care.

After some bug fixing in our boot system we now finally have Orca 
starting on the Live CD the way we intended. CDs found here:

and any Edgy release after RC should work this way.

New instructions for booting:

* Start the machine with the Edgy CD in the drive
* Wait for about 5-10 seconds (waiting too long --30 sec-- will cause 
the boot to continue without accessibility features)
* You are now at the boot options menu
* Press F5 for the the accessibility menu, 3 for screen reader and Enter 
to activate
* Press Enter again to boot the CD
* Wait 2-3 minutes as the CD boots
* You should now be greeted with 'Welcome to Orca'

The Orca+installer issue should also be sorted out today. We still have 
some trouble getting the magnifier to autostart though.
