Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-voice-control

Please update gnome-voice-control package to version 0.3+SVN - there are lots of improvements since 0.2 release, which is currently in Ubuntu since 7.10 (Gutsy), see http://live.gnome.org/GnomeVoiceControl/Releases :

Gnome-Voice-Control 0.3 (released 2007-10-23)

New features and UI improvements:

    * Port to pocketsphinx, much faster now with wsj model.
    * Libnotify support.
    * New actions for clicks, keyboard and main menu.

SVN version has even more improvements, like added support for German and Russian, look at


As far as I know, it is not possible to update to 0.3, until
pocketsphinx and sphinxbase get to the repositories. David
Huggins-Daines prepared the packages few months ago, and I tried to
help him to get advocates for it, but we had no luck in getting them
in. I contacted people on #cmusphinx on Freenode and they said it is
not possible to compile g-v-c 0.3 with sphinx, meaning this task is
blocked by pocketsphinx and sphinxbase.

Doing some initial testing I couldn't get gnome-voice-control to build (I'd get one problem after another...). If someone else has been able to get it working on Karmic, please tell me how :).

There are more recent commits in SVN and trying to build gnome-voice-control from there it works (other than configure ignoring the --prefix option). I've send a mail to upstream to see if they'll get out a new release any time soon. If the answer is negative maybe we should still go with a snapshot from SVN, considering all the gains over 0.2 (most important support for amd64).

summary: - Please update gnome-voice-control package to version 0.3+SVN

Oops, that upload was for my PPA and is already being tested (couldn't get it rejected, but it'll fail to build in Karmic anyway). The real upload should come within the next days.

There's a problem with gnome-voice-control 0.4 segfaulting which couldn't be fixed yet, so it doesn't seem like we'll be able to get this into Karmic.

i hope you can get this resolved soon. I am eagerly waiting to use this to the Digital picture frame that I made and want to perform actions (like open terminal and shutdown and such) through voice. Thanks.
