Hello,

I am trying to install gutsy desktop from the live cd using orca.

I followed the instructions I found that said to go to a gnome-terminal, sudo su, quit orca and restart orca with

orca --no-setup &

When Ido this, orca says "welcome to orca" then stops completely and I cannot do anything.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I don't know much about orca, but my blind friend opened orca and went through the setup. After that it would not read anything. So he re opened orca and it worked. Both times he opened orca with an alt-F2 then typing orca.
