Bug#697350: ebook-speaker: Does not work with mbrola voice files

Package: ebook-speaker
Version: 2.0-2+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

ebook-speaker does not work with mbrola voice files.

 * install ebook-speaker and e. g. mbrola-de4
 * check if it is working with espeak:
   echo "Dies ist ein Test" | espeak -v mb-de4
 * call ebook-speaker:
  * ebook-speaker -l mb-de4 some.epub
  * or set language=mb-de4 in ~/.eBook-speaker.rc and call
    ebook-speaker some.epub 


 * The epub is read with the mbrola voice


 * The text of the book is shown and the reading pointers move
 * No sound
 * with set language=mb-de4: after reading the parameter is changed to
   language=mb-de (4 is missing!)

This seeems to be a problem when copying the language parameter to
dc_language in eBook-speaker.c. Proposal patch in next bug post!
