What is the App? – Mitch Jun 11 '13 at 14:34
@Mitch: festival, a text-to-speech synthetiser but now I'm curious if I can install any other app. – diosney Jun 11 '13 at 16:06
Yes, you can, first chroot to drive in which ubuntu is installed, then simply type sudo apt-get install packegane name – Tachyons Jun 11 '13 at 17:54
