Yeah yeah, that's what I had, ardvark.

When I ran your command I got this:

Code:
gregory@OptiPlex-170L:~/Desktop$ sudo apt-get install espeak-gui
[sudo] password for gregory: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package espeak-gui is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'espeak-gui' has no installation candidate
gregory@OptiPlex-170L:~/Desktop$
Then I went to the Ubuntu Software Center and they had it! (see 91)
But then when I clicked "more info" I got this: (see 92)

But that's it. I recognized the logo.

Any more ideas? (We know it's out there!) Thanks!

Yes, download and install the .deb file here (for 32 bit) or here (for 64 bit.)

EDIT: I just realized they are both the same file. If you get any dependency errors, you can find the required packages here, (64 bit here.)

Regards...

Which version of Ubuntu are you using? As it seems espeak-gui is not available in 15.10 anymore. When looking at their code-repository last changes were made end of 2013, so it may be that the project just has been abandoned.

Hi...

According to the pages I linked to in my previous posts, the espeak-gui packages should work in 15.10. Please see here and here.

Ha ha. That did it, Ardvark! Thanks! I did the 32 bit file and it worked fine. I didn't need the dependencies. Works perfectly!

Thanks Tobi. I'm using Xubuntu 15.10 and I've got two 32 bit computers. On the first one the Ubuntu Software Center showed the espeak entry but when I clicked on "more info" it gave me a window that said it wasn't available. I didn't check the second one. I just downloaded the file ardvark gave me and was able to get it that way. It works fine.
