Ok, with one problem very shortly behind me, I have another...
How do I disable or uninstall the Orca Screen Reader?
I can go to shell and then type "startx" and that seems to load the graphical session without Orca starting up, but is there a way I can use the regular graphical programs--> Full X Session without this thing telling me what's happening on the screen all the time?
Clicking on Orca in the Universal Access--> Orca menu just makes it say "Welcome to Orca" again, no options anywhere to turn off. I can't find anything on this site or with Google that mentions this particular problem.
I wish someone would asnwer this. I can't shut orca off either.

sometimes also called "startup applications" "desktop session preferences" or the like.
Try the suggestion on post 4 at the site below. I found several sites indicating success using this method:

But I that wouldn't make sense if the program was loaded into memory because Orca would not have any indication it was just uninstalled. I just turned off the computer and restarted. Orca was gone forever after I did that.
