Hi all,

I'm using linux ubuntu 11.04.
I already installed simon 0.3 (simon_0.3.0-1ubuntu8_i386.deb)
I worked "by the book" I installed all relevant packages, HTK, voxforge.

the bottom line: Simon can not be activate!

The reason - when I try to activate: I quote the popup:
"Could not start recognition because the system reports that the recognition is not ready.

Please check if you have defined a vocabulary, an appropriate grammar and recorded a few trainings samples.

The system will then, upon synchronization, generate the model which will be used for the recognition."

After I pressed OK,  the blue frame (at bottom screen) wrote:
"simone has been deactivated"

I pressed on disconnect and activate again and I've got:
"Model synchronization could not create base model container"

Relevant data:
configuration of speech model:
    Model type: static model
Base model:
     HMM definition: hmmdefs
     Tiedlist model: tiedlist
      Macros: macros
      stats: none
The base model took from /opt/julius-4.2-linuxbin/acoustic_model

"ls -lat /opt/julius-4.2-linuxbin/acoustic_model/

How could I activate simon models?

I chose scenario: [EN/NF]mouse for all descriptions here

Best Regards,
