Sure I can do that. I recently reinstalled Ubuntu 8.10 on my computer so
will need to install scare, frob, frotz, etc but that shouldn't take
long. I'll let you know.
Just curious, but why aren't you running the Gnome desktop? These days
the recent versions of Gnome and Orca work quite well together. Well
enough that I hardly ever need to use the shell except for a few things
such as gcc, gmcs, apt-get, and a few other command line
tools/compilers. Otherwise I am a Gnome user all the way. In fact, the
Linux port of Mysteries of the Ancients I am working on requires a fully
operational version of X-Windows, a recent copy of the Gnome desktop,
Orca, and the gtk-sharp compatibility libraries as well. So as a
software developer targeting the Gnome desktop, which I believe is the
future of Linux access, I'm interested in why there is a prevailing
number of Linux users that are still using speakup and other shell based
programs instead of the Gnome desktop environment with Orca.

I'm curious to know what you find, if anything.
