As this thread doesn't seem to have anything to do with NVDA, let's kindly bring it to a close. If I am wrong, then please very quickly bring this topic back in line with discussing NVDA. Running NVDA under Linux is beyond the scope of this list, and NVDA is not supported on any platform other than Windows.
