Stardict: Dictionary Reading Software

Edit: For those who were having problems, please try this software again and let me know.

Quote:
StarDict is a Cross-Platform and international dictionary written in Gtk2.
It has powerful features such as "Glob-style pattern matching", "Scan selection word,"
"Fuzzy query," etc.
The only problem with this release, is that text will not appear instantly as you type. You will need to close the keyboard for the text to appear.

Let me know if you have any other issues.

To Install:

If installing to SD/MMC, Download: http://projects.mobileread.com/iliad...tardictmmc.zip

If installing co Compact Flash, Download: http://projects.mobileread.com/iliad...stardictcf.zip

It will need to be in a folder called "stardict" (no quotes) in the root (main directory) of your memory card.

You can download dictionaries from http://xdxf.revdanica.com/down/(Make sure download format is set to stardict) or http://stardict.sourceforge.net/Dictionaries.php

You will need to put the dictionary directory from the .tar.gz file in the x:\stardict\share\stardict\dic\ directory.

The quit button is in the lower left hand corner, and looks like a door with an arrow.

Happy Researching.

Wow! Great work Adam. It always surprises me how a single developer can port such useful apps, while iRex always seems to tergiversate the most basic functions.

Hmmm. Not opening here from CF. I have two dictionaries installed. It starts doing something then just stops after a second or two.

Use a program such as 7zip to open the tarball. Put the dictionary directory in the x:\stardict\share\stardict\dic\ directory.

That's not working either Adam. Looks like it's a CF specific thing?

It seems that theres a SD thing aswell, because it doesnt work for me either.
Do we need the shell hack again after installing 2.9.1?

Does not work for me either, not on the SD card, nor on the CF card.

Adam,

Better include 1 dictionary, like the Webster, to have a working package.
Did you test your package on a newly formatted SD card. Which file system?
