I ran the talking arch script which Kial has been working and when doing so, I got the aur helper running. The simple thing is this. I want to switch to espeak NG and yes I am aware of espeakup git. I know that I can install this. I am going to assoom then that if espeak NG ias in the aur, I could just install it and all should be well. I asked aabout keeping aur packages updated as it did not mention in the wiki how to do this with the asseption of any git packages which are cloned. Hope this makes sence,.

Did you ever download a package from aur before? If not you can get and
set up yaourt on archlinux but some edits have to be done to
/etc/pacman.conf and then you need to run two pacman commands to first
Please, do NOT recommend using the archlinux.fr repo. It causes problems all of
the time. Also, do NOT recommend skipping over learning how the AUR actually
works. You're just setting people up for future failure.
What I want to know is, given that the OP's original message clearly
stated he *already has* yaourt installed... why, oh why, must the peanut
gallery recommend *undoing* all that good work of manually (presumably
-- one hopes) installing an AUR helper, and instead recommend activating
the dreaded [archlinuxfr] repo?
(This peanut gallery has posted here before, somehow I am not surprised
he uses [archlinuxfr].)
Either Jude DaShiell didn't read the OP at all, just the subject line,
or he really, really, really wants people to use [archlinuxfr] for some
truly bizarre (and messed up) reason.
Either option is kind of scary.
I also couldn't help but notice, not only did he recommend [archlinuxfr]
he also recommended installing archlinuxfr/yaourt via a partial update!
