Humm, strange.  It is installed, its in my $path and once found, works, 
without the path in front of the invocation, albeit quietly despite all 
the "knobs" being turned wide open. Ditto for FF, news stories now have 
audio.  Not loud enough for old ears, but there.  When I get some of the 
other stuff working again, I'll have to drag in my scope and see if its 
good at the mobo jacks. Wally's choice of pc speakers is $20, or $250 
for your tv, and the $20 ones need all the electrolytic's replaced about 
annually.  BTDT once since I couldn't buy a better set. These are about 
due again I suppose.

Thank you, David.
