trouble with setting up auto starting of orca

Hi Mike:

You might try:

Alt+F1, then navigate to System->Preferences->Sessions.  This will run
the gnome-session-properties application where you can add orca as a
startup program.


Alt+F1, then navigate to System->Preferences->Accessibility.  This will
run the gnome-at-properties application where you can enable orca via
the "Start screenreader and magnifier at log in" checkbox.

Hope this helps,
