MaryTTS works in 2.4, but not in 2.5.6

Hi All,
Really looking for some help on MaryTTS with Rhasspy. I’ve done a lot of testing post my prior posts. It does appear that the MaryTTS interface was changed between 2.4 & 2.5.6 with 2.5.6 using cURL, so I went ahead and installed Rhasspy version 2.4, and have been able to get it to work with MaryTTS by making a change to line 441:

From ->"AUDIO": "WAVE",

I’ve also installed Rhasspy 2.5.6 in a virtual environment in Debian, but I’m still seeing this error:

curl: /usr/lib/rhasspy/rhasspy/ version `OPENSSL_1_1_1' not found (required by /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/

which is the same error I was seeing when I directly install Rhasspy instead of using a virtual environment.
So, I really, really need some assistance. Has anyone setup up MaryTTS that can provide some information? Should I open an issue on GitHub?
Thank you very much
