Mycroft doesn't seems to hear me

Here is what I did so far:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys F3B1AA8B
sudo bash -c 'echo "deb debian main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mycroft-core

When i say something, for example "“Mycroft, create an alarm for five minutes”. I hear the ack sound but that’s it. any idea what am I missing?
I tried to register with (maybe that’s related to my issue??) but it ask me for registration code. I don’t know what is this code…

More information about my system:

Looks like an interesting project but the docs needs some love (:

I found this in the log:

tail -f mycroft-speech-client.log

running ‘mimic’ generate the following:

mimic: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

from slack:

Oh, humm...seems like that version is using libicu55
you could probably hack it by creating a symlink...
well alot of symlinks might be required...
You can clone mimic and build the development branch, we moved away from libicu to a smaller library
it's a bit late but i'll take a look during the week. thank you so much!
if you can access the cli you can pair the device and then change the tts to googletts to get up and running quickly

I didn’t have time to investigate but I wanted to copy paste it here so others can see it and maybe contribute.
