Re: [orca-list] Getting Orca Past the Configuration

Hi Chris.

you've actually got Orca up and running properly.
The screen your seeing with the preference and quit buttons is called the Orca Main Window.
This sits on your desktop all the time while Orca is Running.

I actually find it easier to turn it off. To do this select the preferences button, in the general tab there's a tick box to "Show main orca screen". Un check this button to hide the screen.

If you hide this screen you will need to remember that to change the prefs you'll have to use the Orca Key and space to launch the dialog.

Hope this helps.

After logging on in full screen mode, I press alt+f2 and enter orca as
instructed. I then get in sppeech and braille a dialog inviting me to enter Preferences or Quit. After choosing Preferences, I fill out various things and it all looks just great. Speech and braille are nicely laid out. I press Ok
then tab to and press Quit.

The problem is that every time I enter the Orca command, I get the
preferences/quit dialog. The instructions seem to indicate that after the first time, I should just get into Gnome/Orca with no preferences. Is a file not
being saved somewhere for Orca to see or what else might be a problem?
