Re: Orca Access to system administration apps (Re: has it ben fixed)

Hi Joanie,
I did the .orbitrc thing yesterday and ... it didn't work. I didn't get
any speech out of Synaptic when i tried running it as user but perhaps i
did something wrong somewhere although i thought i did everything right.
I could've spelled .orbitrc wrong or such. Maybe it should all be in
uppercase... or that the file should contain something else that i
wasn't aware of besides those two lines, but if so those things should
be posted here... Well anyways for me it didn't work yesterday evening
swedish time.

Hi Mike.

Thanks, I just noticed that.

Yup, things change daily with pre-release software.  One simply has to 
sit tight -- or perhaps hold on tight.  I find a good sense of humor 
combined with frequent backups helps as well. <grin>

Now if they would just get these things to work with orca.

I believe these things generally *do* work with Orca -- once you do the 
.orbitrc thing.  Did you see the instructions I posted yesterday?   Here 
they are again just in case:

1. Launch gnome-terminal
2. Type sudo su and press Return
3. Type in your password and press Return
4. Type cd /root
5. Type nano .orbitrc press Return
6. Add these lines:
7. Press Control O to write out the changes, followed by Return when 
prompted for the file name
8. Press Control X to exit nano
9. Reboot
