Screenshot of the settings window with the offending settings shown.

When mumble is emerged with USE="-speech", TTS settings are still shown under Configure->Settings->Notifications. This can be *very* confusing when one is trying to get TTS to work by tweaking settings there. (I didn't notice the 'speech' USE flag for a couple days.)

The ideal solution would be to have TTS settings visible, but grayed out. This would indicate that TTS is possible, but disabled or unavailable somehow. That would be far better than tweaking the settings and still hearing absolutely nothing...

Thanks for your report. This is probably something you might want to report upstream. We already pass no-speechd if USE="-speech" is requested, so there's nothing we can do about this packaging wise. Feel free to link the upstream bug here so we can keep track of the upstream progress.

I was honestly hoping the gentoo maintainer for the package would marshal communications with upstream, if necessary. :)

Point me at the appropriate upstream bugtracker, and I'll be on my way.

Thanks for taking care of the issue. The upstream bugtracker can be found at sourceforge:
