@cirlo I am glad you got it working. I tried to get here yesterday to help, but the universe conspired against me lol.

my bad... I don't know why I was so stubborn on that, but I was so sure I hade to run speech-dispatcher's service through systemd 🙄

Just disabling it and running spd-say executes the daemon locally and manages to access output devices just fine!

i get a similar error with AudioOutputMethod "alsa":

speechd:    Trying to make output module use audio output through server.
speechd:    Module set parameters.

speechd:  Error: Module reported error in request from speechd (code 3xx): 300-Opening sound device failed. Reason: server audio is not supported.
300 MODULE ERROR
.
speechd:    Output module does not support audio output through server, making it open audio by itself.
speechd:    Module set parameters.
ALSA ERROR: Cannot open audio device default (Host is down)
ALSA ERROR: Cannot initialize Alsa device 'default': Can't open.
speechd:  Error: Module reported error in request from speechd (code 3xx): 300-Opening sound device failed. Reason: Couldn't open alsa plugin.
300 MODULE ERROR
.
speechd: ERROR: Can't initialize audio in output module, see reason above.
speechd: Speech Dispatcher 0.12.0-rc1 log start
speechd: Error [speechd.c:682]:No speech output modules were loaded - aborting...

The strange thing is that with spd-conf --test-alsa and spd-conf --test-pulse I verified that both ALSA and PulseAudio (or PipeWire in my case) work.

Hi again! Do models using sd_generic (i tried both with epos-generic and piper) work on your system?

I seem to always have a problem with pulseaudio:

speechd:    Trying to make output module use audio output through server.
speechd:    Module set parameters.
speechd:  Error: Module reported error in request from speechd (code 3xx): 300-Opening sound device failed. Reason: server audio is not supported
300 MODULE ERROR
.
speechd:    Output module does not support audio output through server, making it open audio by itself.
speechd:    Module set parameters.
pulse.c: pa_simple_new() failed: Connection refused
speechd:  Error: Module reported error in request from speechd (code 3xx): 300-Opening sound device failed. Reason: Couldn't open pulse plugin.
300 MODULE ERROR
.
speechd: ERROR: Can't initialize audio in output module, see reason above.
speechd: Speech Dispatcher 0.12.0-rc1 log start
speechd: Error [speechd.c:682]:No speech output modules were loaded - aborting...

if i try to use spd-say anyway, i get:

Failed to connect to Speech Dispatcher:
Error: Can't connect to unix socket /run/user/1000/speech-dispatcher/speechd.sock: Connection refused. Autospawn: Server successfully autospawned

i use pipewire-pulse run by user through systemd

@alex19EP thank you very much for your speed in listening to my request! ^^ The same cannot be said about my reply :{

alex19EP commented on 2021-07-14 12:45 (UTC)

@cirlo no need to be sorry for asking anything. I added pico support.

cirlo commented on 2021-07-14 07:02 (UTC)

I am sorry for asking, but why was pico support removed? It did work fine for me and I found it working the best in my mother tongue...

@ph34rb0t

You can do what you want in your PKGBUILD, stormdragon does what he/she wants in his/hers.

one of the nice things about arch in general, and aur in particular, is that we are working together to make the ecosystem better and more convenient for everyone.

@stormdragon2976 pleas apply my patch at: https://gist.github.com/alex19EP/077a8a30e89f0f06ddc4221a9e6ccfd0

@ph34rb0t sorry but i don't agree.

  1. I try to make my pkgbuilds look good and conform to arch standards.
  2. as I already said, to compile a package, you need components from the base-devel group, if someone does not have it installed, or is not fully installed - you should warn him about this, and not bypass this error.
