Re: debian bullseye on chrome os with crouton

In stretch the XDG_RUNTIME_DIR variable was not set, and thus the
speech-dispatcher socket would end up in the user's home, and I
guess that happens to be working by luck with crouton. Of course,
you can try to change the path of the socket in speechd.conf, or set
CommunicationMethod to inet_socket to use a TCP/IP port. But best would
be to get crouton to fix the bug.

As an aside, the XDG Base Directory Specification states under "Environment

But in practice some software use one or the other environment variable
for the same purpose (including sockets)

For this reason I ended up setting these defaults for Slint in

export XDG_CACHE_HOME=/dev/shm/$(whoami)
mkdir -p /dev/shm/$(whoami)
chmod 700 /dev/shm/$(whoami)

Maybe not very orthodox, but no issue reported so far due to these default
