Hi Brandt,

either speech-dispatcher or the voxin installer is not up to date.

The output of :
ls /var/log/packages/speech-dispatcher*
should be:

If not, you need to keep your system up to date.
As a reminder for whoever in the same situation, type as root:
slapt-het -u
slapt-get --upgrade
slapt-get--install-set slint

If yes, in case your voxin tarball be old, dowload the most recent one
(3.3rc5 at time of writing)
TIP: you always can get the currnet version re-using the same download 
you got when  buying the voice(s)

Then run the installer and just press Enter to agree
on all three questions

If all that fails, please get back to us.
