Cainteoir Text-to-Speech

Flattr this git repo

The cainteoir-gtk project is a Gtk+/Gnome graphical front-end to the cainteoir-engine library.


In order to build Cainteoir Text-to-Speech, you need:

  1. a functional autotools system (make, autoconf, automake, libtool, intltool and pkg-config);
  2. a functional c++ compiler;
  3. the Cainteoir text-to-speech engine;
  4. Gtk+ 3.10 or later development libraries.

When running cainteoir-gtk, you will need:

  1. the gnome-icon-theme-symbolic package (to display the icons correctly).


Dependency Install
autotools sudo apt-get install make autoconf automake libtool intltool pkg-config
c++ compiler sudo apt-get install gcc g++
gtk+ sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev
gnome-icon-theme-symbolic sudo apt-get install gnome-icon-theme-symbolic


Cainteoir Text-to-Speech uses a standard autotools build setup. Simply run:

$ ./
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
$ make
$ sudo make install
