Thread: Festival text to speech install issues

  1. #1

    Default Festival text to speech install issues

    I installed the festival text to speech application from zypper and tried to run it and got an error message:

    ~> festival --tts test.txt
    Initialization file /usr/share/festival/lib/init.scm not found

    ~> rpm -qf `which festival`
    festival-2.4-3.3.x86_64
    ~> rpm -ql festival-2.4-3.3.x86_64 | grep init.scm
    /usr/share/festival/init.scm
    /usr/share/festival/siteinit.scm

    It seems that program is expecting stuff to be in /usr/share/festival/lib/ when it is all in /usr/share/festival/

    After making a lib sub folder of /usr/share/festival/ and then linking all the files to it I got the thing running though I did have to add the lines

    (Parameter.set 'Audio_Required_Format 'aiff)
    (Parameter.set 'Audio_Method 'Audio_Command)
    (Parameter.set 'Audio_Command "paplay $FILE --client-name=Festival --stream-name=Speech")

    to the bottom of festival.scm.
