I'm new to Linux running GCompris on Ubuntu 9.2. My son is 3 and already speaking French and English. When I first downloaded the package I had not yet installed French language packages for the OS, and now I'm having a heck of a time finding where the french voice packages are downloaded from. So if I go to the Alphabet game, for example, even thought the language is in French, the voice defaults to English as a failover. I've found instructions for how to enable the voice packages once I get my hands on them, I just can't find where they get downloaded from? Should I delete gcompris and grab its package again from Ubuntu Software Center. Will that get the English language packages then?
I'm also wondering where gcompris installs itself (novice Linux/Ubuntu question there, probably).
Merci pour tous!

Just an idea: how about to build in the ability to play music CDs while the program is running? For example, there could simply be buttons "play" and "stop" in the panel.

Please, check the latest version. There is an amazing intro music and now several boards do have speaken voice for letters, numbers, colors, and concratulations.
These voices are available for english, french, spanish and german.
This project is just fantastic! And according to my daughter (she got started with gcompris when she was 3 - now 4!) it lacks just ONE thing!
She's always asking me:"Where's the music?"
It's difficult to grab their (the kids) without music!
TKS for this great job!
