simon is a very good and promising software, particularly for linux!
I'm trying to use it with HTK models but I get those two screens
no matter what, even with ready made plugins
* I've mistaken add this topic at first place to tracker/bugs, sorry :(
Do you get any other errors than "Could not complete synchronization"?
Could you describe your simon configuration in a little bit of detail?
I'll post my configuration settings when I get back home.
Just notice that I download from voxforge the latest HTK package and setup simon on first start, nothing more, anything else should be defaults.
Thanks for your reply!
Hm this sounds interesting.
According to the screenshots you use Linux? Which distribution? Version?
Yes, I'm using Ubuntu 10.04
Not that you mind, but I'm the author of this project http://sites.google.com/site/projectjanet/
I referred it because probably, when I setup simon correctly (with your help hopefully), you could help me also with scenarios I would use to control my framework with simon.
Anyways, I think simon is the best approach for speech recognition in linux and that's why I preferred it!
Also note that I did exactly what you did on this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjJCl72f-Gs with the same acoustic models.
Your project certainly sounds interesting. You might want to take a look at the new dialog system as well: http://simon-listens.blogspot.com/2010/09/monolog.html
Your error certainly is a strange one and hard to debug from here. Do you get any other errors? Does simond crash? Do you have enough free space in KDEs temporary directory?
You said you use a static base model. If you look at the model configuration in simons configuration dialog, did you provide the downloaded files there (this error could maybe produced by setting simon to use a static base model and not providing one)?
No crash at all, just the above messages..
I think I have provided them successfully, maybe those screen shots could help…
monolog++ looks like my project, off course yours is more superior, however I found some similarities that maybe make me put mine in the drawer :) The approach is pretty close!
As you can see I have a description file of -let's call them 'scenarios' :) to an xml file, you can get an idea here http://www.jambel.net/downloads/AppConfig.xml
I wish I could contribute!
Awaiting for the plugin!
*of course I meant in previous topic, damn sourceforge, can't edit :S
If you like take a look on this video, some basic tasks I use with jaNET http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M38mqXbAuLE
The only thing I want to accomplish is the voice dictation and I will be a happy hippo again!
Sorry if I'm chattering too much but I'm a little bit excited!
I think you have discovered a genuine bug in simond. However, I can't really troubleshoot it from here.
Your first simon contribution could be to help hunt this issue down. Please provide me with your complete simon configuration. To do this, please send me these files as compressed tarball:
Send them to grasch ate simon-listens dot org.
Once you have done this you can probably work around the issue simply be removing your simond folder:
rm -rf ~/.kde/share/apps/simond
(you won't lose anything)
I've mailed you, thanks!
Thanks but you missed the simond folder (~/.kde/share/apps/simond). As you are encountering a simond issue, I'd really need this folder too…
Thanks in advance!
I've probably forgot it, sorry about that but I have a new issue. I install Ubuntu 10.10 and I got those two errors..
1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:grasch-simon-listens/simon
2. sudo apt-get update
I get this…

maybe that helps… when I try to search for those packages I found that post to…
Ubuntu 10.10 is not yet supported.
QtMultimedia was replaced by QtMobilities QtMultimediaKit but it isn't a trivial change (requireing changes to simons buildsystem). I'll create packages for 10.10 but that might take a while… Sorry.
Desperately awaiting fix for 10.10
@nabsha: Good timing :)
A maverick package has been built and uploaded to the ppa. It's not yet available on the mirrors but should be distributed right now and thus available in probably about an hour.
Peter, can you please tell how I can download the package?
Sure. You can find the updated packages in the appropriate Ubuntu ppa (https://launchpad.net/~grasch-simon-listens/+archive/simon/+packages).
I also uploaded the packages to the files section so you can download it from sourceforge as well.
