New dictionaries for kobo (no limits)

Step by step to install new dictionaries in kobo readers. It serves for dictionaries of another languages and install additional dictionaries of languages installed.

Updated post to work with fw v.4.22.15190

Inspired by the contributions of Robik and Pipcat in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...30#post3311930

You must search dictionaries in kobo format. See in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...ght=dictionary or prepare with Penelope (https://github.com/pettarin/penelope).

1.- Patch the libnickel.so.1.0.0 file with the method geek1011 patchs. Download your firmware patches:

https://github.com/pgaskin/kobopatch-patches/releases

Edit the file libnickel.so.1.0.0.yalm and enable `Allow searches on Extra dictionaries` patch:

Spoiler:
Allow searches on Extra dictionaries:
- Enabled: yes
# See https://pgaskin.net/dictutil/dicthtml/install
- FindBaseAddressString: "\0Extra:\x20"
- ReplaceString: {Offset: 7, Find: "\x20", Replace: "_"}




2.- We need a two chars code for each dictionary. If language doesn't exists on Kobo we can use its ISO-639-1 (Ex: Catalan => ca. Euskera => eu), otherwise we will assign a new fictitious code (Ex: English => e1, e2 . Spanish => s1)


3- Edit \.kobo\Kobo\Kobo eReader.conf and fill ExtraLocales=xx in [ApplicationPreferences] seccion with the two chars code of the dictionaries to install (separate with commas)

ExtraLocales=ca, e1, e2, s1, eu




4.- Copy dictionary files to \.kobo\dict

You have to name the files with the file structure of kobo dictionaries with the two chars code.

dicthtml-ca.zip, dicthtml-e1.zip, dicthtml-e2.zip, dicthtml-s1.zip, dicthtml-eu-es.zip



5.- From fw 4.22 step 5 is no longer necessary


6.- Safely disconnect the reader and restart.
You have the new dictionaries.
You can use on the book and from the menu dictionary of the home
