Installing Simon Voice Recognition Software

Posted 10-25-2015 at 10:32 PM by Ztcoracat

Installing the dependencies wasn't what I'd call fun.
It took about 10 hours to do so.

After running the build script for Simon several times and it continued to complain that opecv wasn't installed when in fact it was installed; I began to think that maybe Slackware needed a different version of Simon.

That pkg that is needed is here:

Posted 10-22-2015 at 01:10 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 12-22-2015 at 01:15 PM by exton (MORE INFO)

Exton|OS build 151022 is based on Ubuntu 15.10 64 bit released today (October 22, 2015) and Debian Jessie (Debian 8.2). Exton|OSs ISO file is a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run Exton|OS from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence!

NEWS 151022
A new and much better version of Exton|OS is ready. I have replaced kernel 4.0.0-4-exton with kernel 4.2.0-16-exton...

Upgrade of 2003 machine to Debian 8 -- a bumpy ride
