says that my display is detected. however, my display stays blank. someone
suggested i should change profile or something, how should i do this, or
what needs to be done to get the right stuff on my display?

I'm Nath and I leave in France. Excuse my English : It's very bad but I hope your understand me a little. I just want to know if it's really possible for a blind person to install suse 7.0 without help. And if it's possible what can I do ? My braille display is a Vario which is compatible with Handitech braille displays. When I start with the cd-rom Yast2 runs on the machine, the braille display is detected but I'm not be able to perform the installation because I don't know where the cursor is pointing. Maybe Yast2 is not the good application and then what can I do ?
For a long time I was looking for a good, multi-functional MP3-
Player for the Linux Console.
I didn´t found one.
I currently use mpg123, but I don´t like it.
I would prefer a Player that supports moving backward/forward in a
song, increase/decrease volume,...
It should also include a feature to move through directories and
There is an excellent player for Dos/Win32 (called open Cubic
On the web-page, they wrote something about a linux-portation, but
it seems to me that it is not ready yet.
Perhaps, someone could help me with that problem.
Regards - Daniel!
PS: If you know about a player that also supports other formats
(wave, Midi, Wma,...) please tell me!
I just uploaded a new version of brass to:
brass - BRaille And Speech Server now support IBM Viavoice as synthesizer
(currently only for US English). This is just a quick hack, maybe it is
not stable, please give feedback.
Currently you can't combine this with Softspeech (hadifix, mbrola) for
German because both claim the audio device. This may change in the future.
I have just uploaded the first developer version of brass, a braille and
speech server for Linux. You can find it on:
Some features of brass:
· Supports several types of braille terminals connected to the
· Multilingual speech support (currently English and German)
· Support for several hardware synthesizers
· Speech without any hardware synthesizer through a soundcard.
· Can be controlled by keys on the braille terminal and with the
keyboard (this needs a kernel patch).
· Modular code, easy to extend
The brass code is based on the brltty code, but many things have changed.
This version is not for the "end user", there is not much
documentation. But I hope there will be some beta testers.
Hi, i've written twice to the administrator of this list, but no any answer,
while I read exactly the same as you: suse.com = english and suse.de =
german. So I don't understand why it is talking german here... I hope the
problem should soon be solved.
