[opensuse] screen reader problems
Hello suse people,

I am running 12.2 with kde 4.9.

A couple of weeks ago I posted about the app jovie no launching as a normal
user . Jovie is the kde interface for screen readers and replaces ktts. I
received no replies. I then attempted to open jovie as root and received this
asystreet:/ # jovie
jovie(5186): KUniqueApplication: Cannot find the D-Bus session server: "Did
not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not
send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply
timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."

jovie(5185): KUniqueApplication: Pipe closed unexpectedly.

E=asystreet:/ #

Since I couldn't get jovie to open I decided to install orca. The installation
required changing and/or adding about 50 packagess. Upon attempting to open
orca I received the following message:
ob@Easystreet:~> orca
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gi/overrides/ RuntimeWarning: You
have imported the Gtk 2.0 module. Because Gtk 2.0 was not designed for use
with introspection some of the interfaces and API will fail. As such this is
not supported by the pygobject development team and we encourage you to port
your app to Gtk 3 or greater. PyGTK is the recomended python module to use
with Gtk 2.0
warnings.warn(warn_msg, RuntimeWarning)

I cannot decipher what these messages mean and please keep in mind that I am
sight impaired and have great difficulty reading them.

Can someone please help me get either of these screen readers working???
