NAME
gpe-announce - program to announce alarms to the user SYNOPSIS
gpe-announce DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the gpe-announce. This manual page was written for the Debian(TM) distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. gpe-announce announces alarms set by gpe-calendar and gpe-clock to the user in the G Palmtop Environment OPTIONS
gpe-announce "alarm text" The text displayed by the alarm box can be specified as a quoted string on the command line. Further arguments are ignored due to problems with the upstream gstreamer support. AUDIO SUPPORT
To allow audio sounds, ensure that /dev/mixer exists and that no other processes are using /dev/dsp (e.g. a music player like rhythmbox, even when not playing, will make gpe-announce think that the audio device is busy). You may need to load the snd_pcm_oss kernel driver for /dev/mixer to appear: $ sudo modprobe snd_pcm_oss AUTHOR
