problems installing festival (text to speech program)


http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/projects/fe.../download.html

ok from what I have read, to install this program I need to download servile parts to this one program as you can see here.

festvox_cstr_us_awb_arctic_multisyn-1.0.tar.gz
`Scottish' English male speaker (AWB), using US English front end,
using excited residual LPC multisyn database.
(Note this is about 100MB)
requires festlex_POSLEX.tar.gz and festlex_CMU.tar.gz
ok the only thing I do not quite understand is this using US English front end,
using excited residual LPC multisyn database.


any I downloaded both of it requirements which is

festlex_POSLEX.tar.gz and festlex_CMU.tar.gz

also the main program is these 2

festival-1.95-beta.tar.gz And speech_tools-1.2.95-beta.tar.gz

now when I unpack them everything goes into festival folder save the speech_tools which goes to ists own dir.

now frome what I have read I need to install the tools first so I go into it and do the ./configure

now it goes so far then gives me this error in fact I'll show you the whole config its not long


loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu

creating config/config
now I did try to go ahade and do make but at the end of it the same error (actually I did not notice the error until I did make]

ok I looked in kpackage for the files maby they are some kind of package but I did not find them also I looked around the internet on google but all I found were some similar questions with no answers to them or not what I need or understood.

ok for your info I have a debian sarge distro


thank you for reading and for your help

ps if you know of some other text to speech program that is easer to us just tell me unless you know that this is better (best)

again think you

ok it has been a few days sense I was working on this but the last thing I did was set it up and it seemed to install alright although it did give me this when I dad ./configure

checking for tputs in -ltermcap... (cached) no
checking for tputs in -lncurses... (cached) no

however just for (what if) I went ahead and did make and make install which seemed to work however I can not find the program in the menu and I have no idea what to type to run it any Ideas

I did restart my comp and I also checked the menu update for it

this is not a problem.
Your program should be installed,
probably in /usr/local/bin which is in your path.
So all you need to do is open a console and execute it.
try typing festvox and then hit enter.
or type fest and hit tab to autocomplete (if you have more that one executables that start with fest you need to hit tab again to display you all the options).

you may also try
ls -l /usr/local/bin
thats a little L not a 1
to get a list of all the entries in /usr/local/bin
Good Luck
