Hi guys,

I am having problem when I try to install Cepstral to my Pi
It's running on raspbian as the operating system
The error message that I got was /opt/swift/bin/swift.bin: 1: /opt/swift/bin.swift.bin: Syntax error: ")" unexpected'
I have been trying to find solutions but it seems like no one has this problem
Any help is really appreciated

Has anyone ever gotten this to work or even install on a pi?

I am starting to believe that I have thrown away 30 bucks!

I also tried to install it on Debian jessie Model 3 Raspberry Pi and failed.
But I got probably one step further: The error message the script is giving sounds like it is looking for bash, but jessie is defaulting to bin/dash.

I updated the scripts in the bin subdirectory of the installer and explicitly pointed to
Code: Select all

Unfortunately, I am not stuck with this error message, which points to some issue with the actual binary compilation. I opened a support ticket...

Code: Select all
Testing the installed swift binary...
/opt/swift/bin/swift -o /dev/null 'hello world'
/opt/swift/bin/swift: line 12: /opt/swift/bin/swift.bin: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
/opt/swift/bin/swift: line 12: /opt/swift/bin/swift.bin: Success

Installation failed.  Please contact Cepstral LLC by e-mail for further
support, including a transcript of the installation script's output, if

4marcus; Have you heard anything from your support ticket? I would love to know, I have still had zero success. Would love to hear from someone who has gotten it to work with a raspberry pi 3

Would be nice if Cepstral would do an example!

I got a nice reply from customer support: the voices downloadable for testing are 386 architecture, so they won't run on ARM on the Pi. There is a English voice for ARM available from customer support, which I have not tried: the voice is English only for now, but I need multiple languages. So I have not installed the voice up to now and cannot confirm that it actually runs..
