  • Pico voice not working - .wav file not found

    After I installed some pico (from another thread: ), I get the error log below - and no sound... -

    Aug-11 8:44:00 AM AirplaySpeak ERROR File /usr/local/HomeSeer/Temp/AirplaySpeak20160811084400192.wav does not exist
    Aug-11 8:44:00 AM AirplaySpeak INFO (iW3): Volume at 15
    Aug-11 8:44:00 AM AirplaySpeak DEBUG calling SpeakToFile text=Volume at 15 file=/usr/local/HomeSeer/Temp/AirplaySpeak20160811084400192.wav

    Looks like pico puts the file somewhere else?
    Any ideas?

    Nobody ran in to this issue yet? I still could not figure out how this can be fixed...
    Any help is welcome!

      are you sure your works?
      did you try to call it from the command line to test?
      Code: test.wav "ths is a test"

        When I enter the command test.wav "this is a test"

        in directory
        homeseer@HomeTrollerZeeS2 /usr/local/HomeSeer $

        I get this error message:

        -bash: command not found

        This is what I had in the

        #flite -o "$1_t" -t "$2"
        #ffmpeg -i "$1_t" -y -ar 44100 "$1"
        #rm "$1_t"
        pico2wave -l en-US -w "$1" "$2"
        ffmpeg -i "$1_t" -y -ar 44100 "$1"
        #pico2wave -l en-GB -w "$1" "$2"

        at least when I was testing pico.

        To get the standard voice, I'm using

        flite -o "$1_t" -t "$2"
        ffmpeg -i "$1_t" -y -ar 44100 "$1"
        #rm "$1_t"
        #pico2wave -l en-US -w "$1" "$2"
        #ffmpeg -i "$1_t" -y -ar 44100 "$1"
        ##pico2wave -l en-GB -w "$1" "$2"

          if I run

          pico2wave -l en-US -w test.wav "this is a test"

          it creates the test.wav file OK in the directory where I run it.

          Seems to me that that's as expected. Not sure why it doesn't put the output file in the right spot for the plugin to pick it up.
