    Unhappy Transcriber

    Hello everybody, I have been trying to run this program called transcriber. I don´t think many people use it, because I haven´t found a whole lot of information in the forums. The program is used to transcribe audio into text, or mark spots in the audio worth of interest. I used this program in Ubuntu 10.04, it came in the repositories and installed with no problem, but I´m not having the same luck in OpenSUSE 12.3. I downloaded it from the official page and followed the steps but I get this error:

    Code:
    Application initialization failed: no display name and no $DISPLAY environment variable
    Error in startup script: couldn't load file "/usr/local/bin/../lib/tcLex1.2/tcLex.so.1.2": /usr/local/bin/../lib/tcLex1.2/tcLex.so.1.2: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32
        while executing
    "load /usr/local/bin/../lib/tcLex1.2/tcLex.so.1.2 tcLex"
        ("package ifneeded tcLex 1.2" script)
        invoked from within
    "package require tcLex"
        (file "/usr/local/bin/../lib/transcriber1.5/tcl/Xml.tcl" line 34)
        invoked from within
    "source /usr/local/bin/../lib/transcriber1.5/tcl/Xml.tcl"
        ("uplevel" body line 1)
        invoked from within
    "uplevel \#0 
    [list source [file join $v(path,tcl) $module.tcl]]"
        (procedure "LoadModules" line 34)
        invoked from within
    "LoadModules"
        (procedure "Main" line 10)
        invoked from within
    "Main $argv"
        (file "/usr/local/bin/../lib/transcriber1.5/tcl/Main.tcl" line 1115)
    I have tcl/tk installed in my system but it doesn´t seem to recognize them. Any suggestions? Or perhaps someone knows a program with similar funcionality? Thanks!

    Just in case someone else is trying to use this program in Linux, the Windows version works great in Wine.

    The line before that, containing the prompt, and the command call, is
    missing. Please do the paste complete, it is needed to judge that error.

    And besides what Carlos says (you should allwqays copy/paste complete: prompt, command, output, next prompt, else we can only see what you got, but not what you did to get it, and more), you expect us to go to what you call an "official page", but you give no URL, download something you did not specify very exactly and then read any instructions there, etc.

    You better tell us (or better show us) what you did step by step.

    BTW, the first part of the error message seems to point to the fact that this is a GGUI programm and that no GUI display is available for it.

    Thus it is important to know if you are loged in in a GUI (and which DE you use) or not and when yes from where you give the command.

    I see a link in nntp, is not the the one?

    Code:
    http://trans.sourceforge.net/en/presentation.php

    I think he downloads "transcriber"; that's the sourforge link he posted,
    and there is a download link on the left.

    You are correct, the word "page" hides a link. Not the standard way to post links here

    But I do not think that what you (or I) think he did is something to follow. We want to know what he did.

    No idea. I see the full text of the link. When I post a link, I can do
    it as a word, using the documented manner
    for nntp users, as inline tex, which gets broken <http://localhost>, or
    as code

    Code:
    http://localhost
    II have no idea what is the proper manner on the web side.
