[orca-list] GMSGFMT mystery solved

Earlier today I posted that I was getting a Makefile with a null GMSGFMT variable. I figured out that it was because I needed to install the debian gettext package. Once I installed that, I was able to make and install orca. It doesn't work but it's installed. :-)

I'm going to putz with it some more tomorrow. I may need to ask for help again but I'm going to try to figure it out myself first. I had done that with the GMSGFMT problem but I didn't think I was going to figure that one out on my own.

PS: I am using the current stable version of orca, 2.18.0 I think it is. Not the version from svn. With the version from svn, it said I had to update gnome-common from cvs and I didn't know how to do that. So I went back to the tarball I had downloaded and got that to compile.

PPS: I've been taking notes on what I've been doing to get orca working on my debian testing system. I have to get it working on debian testing because that is what we have in my department at the University of Wisconsin. Here are my notes (they are very brief).

wget http://ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/GNOME/sources/orca/2.18/orca-2.18.0.tar.gz
      tar -zxf orca-2.18.0.tar.gz

apt-get install gcc libexpat1-dev
perl -MCPAN -e "install XML::Parser"
apt-get install pkg-config libglib2.0-dev python-dev python-pyorbit-dev
apt-get install python-at-spi gettext
