LOL, these are tipical examples of poorly made advertisement based Chinese download website. You see about 10 download icons in one page, yet none of them points to the true downdload link.

Kindle DXG and Duokan Lite

Did you try Duokan Lite on your DX with the Kindle 3 upgrade?

I have a K3G with 3.1 and would like use that to update my DXG 2.5.8 now having old Duokan. I know Duokan Lite won't work with 2.5.8 and wonder if Lite would work with 3.1 or better. I am now using the old Duokan with barely adequate results and expect the Duokan Lite would be better for the DXG. I doubt the Duokan would know the difference between the K3G with 3.1 and the DXG with 3.1 unless the installer refuses.

I did use the yifanlu updater to make a restore of 2.5.8 just to be safe before installing Duokan 2011_5_20 and had to uninstall the jailbreak to get the Duokan install to work so maybe that would be the same after doing the update. I hesitate to do the upgrade and attempt to install Duokan Lite on my DXG if nobody else has gotten that to work before. I would still like to use Duokan if I can't use Duokan Lite so would have to restore the 2.5.8 if there was no way with 3.1. My K3G is about a thousand miles away now so I have to wait a couple of months to do the upgrade when I can finally get my K3G and DXG together so I would like to know if this will be possible then because I haven't seen a good answer to this question.

Has anybody gotten the Duokan Lite to work with DX upgraded to Kindle 3 software?

Has anybody tried to install Duokan Lite on a DX upgraded to Kindle 3 software?

Unfortunately only supported format is stardict. There are some stardict dictionary sources on the first post.

Duokoan StarDict issues

Unfortunately, the StarDict support in Duokan is rather limited:

1. Automatic word lookup in ebooks does not work if the word contains accented characters, umlauts and other Latin characters not found in English.
2. Duokan does not support StarDict dictionaries with inflections even though StarDict does support them. (StarDict dictionaries with inflections come with a .syn file.)
3. Duokan does not display StarDict dictionaries with HTML codes in them correctly.

The only positive thing about Duokan's StarDict support is that it supports dictionary lookup for some languages currently not supported by Kindle 3s. For example, you can look up words in Russian ePubs if you install a Russian StarDict dictionary.

For these reasons, and because the quality of StarDict dictionaries usually leaves much to be desired, I'd recommend using the Kindle firmware for books in languages for which commercial Mobipocket dictionaries exist and dictionary lookup works.
Simply install Kindle Previewer, which will automatically convert ePubs to .mobi books if you open an ePub book with it.

For all other languages the best way to get a good StarDict dictionary is to find a suitable Babylon .bgl dictionary file and convert it with StarDict Editor. (You'll have to first compile the .bgl file to a .babylon file and then compile the .babylon file to a StarDict file.)
