Hi. This machine is from 2019. I am guessing there is a way to get the version of Pac-Man on that system.  I was unable to get orca to read the file. To give you an idea of how old this system is, the nano is 4.4 something.

I can force it to use the ipv4 server, but using mate-terminal with orca I am unable to edit the /etc/pacman.d/gnu/pgp.conf file to change the server.  Orca will not read it and plume will not open it with sudo rites.  Any ideas on this one?  This is an older arch vm which will not update till the PGP keys have been updated and imported.  I do not have speech in a conc so that would not work.  Thanks.
