Does the installation icon for Edgy work for a fully sighted user?
I ask this if I have to install Ubuntu without speech?
What I need to know is is there a problem of the installer crashing when
double clicking on it as it seemed to do when the main chap who was
helping me install it on my laptop at my Linux group tried it and the
system seemed to hang and even reboots of the laptop didn't workk?
Does the installer need to be run from a terminal to avoid this problem
if so which means does a Sighted user have to type Ubiquity rather than
double click on the Icon when using the CD?
I am finding installing with speech is being a bit of a pain as the
drive either goes into Ubuntu Live as I hear the new Edgy tune and no
Orca or Ubuntu doesn't load at all if I do F5 and 3 and enter twice when
I try and get speech to work from the boot prompt.
I thought if I had a problem with Edgy on my laptop it would work on my
desktop as the system resources are probably higher even though my
laptop runs Dapper but my desktop is still only just Windows but even
the desktop doesn't seem to run Orca when I do the same keystrokes
during booting the PC.
