I am on Windows 7 64 bit too. I cannot remember what platform I targeted when I built Marisa but I am pretty sure it was x86 (32 bit). I am away from home right now so cannot check. But please feel free to use my Marisa build in Penelope.

Today I became aware that it is again possible to add custom dictionaries to the installed dictionaries (and not only to replace existing Kobo dictionaries of the same name). I tried dicthtml-fr-fr.zip and dicthtml-de-de.zip. After restarting the reader, both were in the list and selectable, but not searchable. See an example here. After adding for each new dictionary a line in the Dictionary table of the database, both dictionary became searchable.
This seems however not to work with dictionaries that translate from (and possibly to) Japanese.
Be aware, that the database is not much forgiving. It happened to me that I wrote de-de instead of -de-de into the first column. The reader refused the whole database and asked me to initialize the reader via wifi or usb. The same happened when I tried to write English - Farsi in the name field instead of Deutsch - Deutsch.

Hi

I moved to a linux box to use Penelope to convert my stardicts(had to build Marisa thing). I converted using the command line with the --output-kobo option. It looked like P created the compressed dicts no problem. Then I copied them to Kobo (.kobo/dict). But they do nto show up in the dict list. And the language I am interested in is notlisted in the language pull down.

The files that I have have idx,dict.dz,ifo, syn extensions

What do I do at this point? I am using Glo with 3.1.0 Could it be firmware vs dict format issue?


thanks

I seem to recall you can't add an arbitrary language; if you want a new language you have to use on of the pre-defined language names.

That is interesting. None of the tutorials/pages I looked at mentioned such thing. I will try it.
