    How to configure KDE4 text-to-speech suite

    After 5+ years of using Ubuntu, I am switching to it as my desktop. On my old FreeBSD desktop i was running KDE3; now I am runnung 10.04.1 and find that even tho things are more friendly with KDE4, one of the tools I use most,kttsmgr, no longer works like it did on my previous desktop.

    How can I configure kttsmgr to use festival (right now it says "espeak") and to present the dialogue that prints the strings beneath what is being read? --Note that I downloaded flite and eflite for testing purposes. Both fail. not a peep. I do have audio with songs and can listen to streams, but nothing from ktts*

    Can anybody clue me in?

    tia, guys.

    Hi, All!

    I'm quite new on Kubuntu and I've got the same problem, kttsd doesn't work at all.
    I've tried to install the following packages festival festival-freebsoft-utils festvox-ellpc11k kttsd and "kttsd-contrib-plugins" and here it is. On version 10 of Kubuntu doesn't exist the package "kttsd-contrib-plugins" and this is why you cannot find voices on kttsmgr.

    Anybody who knows where can we download "kttsd-contrib-plugins" from any repository, is welcomed.
