Dictionary :-)
« on: July 19, 2004, 12:01:34 pm »
Hi! Finally it's there  a dictionary for pdaXrom
I compiled stardict:
A screenshot:

stardict has quite a lot of dependencies (gtk gnome-vfs libgnomecanvas libgnome libgnomeui libbonobo libbonoboui orbit2 gconf) but runs fine.

To install a dictionary, download a dictionary tarball from

Untar it and move the dictionary-dir to /usr/local/share/stardict/dic

Now stardict should recognize the dictionary.

Code: [Select]
I want to download an English to German dictionary:

# wget
# tar xjvf stardict-quick_eng-deu-2.4.2.tar.bz2
# mv stardict-quick_eng-deu-2.4.2 /usr/local/share/stardict/dic
# stardict &

happy translating

grusz, jabbath
