Re: [orca-list] Orca on Ubuntu eeePC

Hi their.
As you probably know, I'm considering purchasing an EEE PC for use with
Linux--doesn't have to be Ubuntu though.  Since I obviously can't see the
screen, will that be a issue for me?  I was under the impression that the
original poster was trying to manipulate the Orca GUI with the touch pad or
whatever pointing device the EEE PC comes wth.

Hi David:

Yech.  Unfortunately, Orca's preferences GUI is just too big.  You should be
able to move it around, however, by pressing Alt+F7 and then using the arrow

Weʼve successfully installed Orca onto a Ubuntu based eeePC and certainly on
mains power it runs extremely well with some hesitancy on battery power. But
one problem appears to be that the Orca preferences screen doesnʼt resize
when the machine starts up, which means that in order to set preferences and
select options one needs to plug the umpc into a full monitor to view all
the tabs and buttons
Any ideas ?
