Gnopernicus with Festival

I thought you might like to know that I have succeeded in getting
Gnopernicus and Festival working with the Gnome Desktop version
2.1 today. It remains to be seen how useful it is, but at least
it is talking and that's half the battle.

The keymap for speakup seems to persist into the Gnome Desktop
environment, and that is the biggest problem right now.
Gnopernicus would also like to use the numeric keypad to navigate
with, but speakup still owns it even when Gnome is running.

I will be preparing a howto on the installation of all this stuff
for Slackware users. Other howto's exist for Debian users.


PS -- Please also note my new email address if you wish to
contact me directly.
