It does, I hear a sound when it starts and:

didier[~]$ ps -ef|grep fenrir
didier    2810  2796  1 19:49 pts/0    00:00:00 fenrir
didier    2811  2810  0 19:49 pts/0    00:00:00 /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/fenrir
didier    2813  2810  0 19:49 pts/0    00:00:00 /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/fenrir
didier    2818  2810  0 19:49 pts/0    00:00:00 /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/fenrir
didier    2822  2810  0 19:49 pts/0    00:00:00 /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/fenrir
didier    2833  2796  0 19:50 pts/0    00:00:00 grep fenrir

However I don't know how to make it read anything and the keyboard commands don't work
although i have installed these deps:

Fenrir is mutually exclusive of speakup on the console and orca in graphical mode, which both work well enough.

I'd need to know what benefit could bring to Slint users using fenrir instead before investing more time testing it.

Well we still ship KDE4 for now, so that'd be after the release of Slackware 15, maybe mid-2015, if it ships plasma 5.

Thanks for your effort anyway

If you want to further discuss fenrir or Slint I suggest that we do that elsewhere not to spam this list.

Best regards,
