Last night i did an installation of Ubuntu 7.10 desktop. I've clearly
done something wrong, it's not happy.
First of all i couldn't get it to talk, so i brought in the eyes and we
went through it again. This time i got f5, selected screen reader and
continued. When the live CD loaded i did not get speech, to get speech i had
to go to run, and enter orca. I then had speech, but when i went to the
desktop and hit install, the installation box came up but orca wouldn't read
it. I mean it's like it was a blank screen.
So, i aborted that install and had assistance with it. Basically the box
is up, but orca still isn't happy. I can log in, go to run, start orca, it
does great reading the desktop, or terminal. My issue is my network card was
not detected during installation or i should say configured. I went
terminal, and su-d to root, and then entered network-admin. This brought up
another of those dialogs that again orca acted as if there was a blank
Both of the above tell me i do not have a working system. Two
possibilities i can think of, please feel free to suggest others, one
accessibility hooks and options were not enabled by the install, and or two
orca/the system needs updates that will resolve these issues.
