Post Announcing Mobidict: A desktop dictionary reader for azw/mobi files

Hi all,

I always wanted to be able to use my Kindle dictionaries on desktop. Hence I am happy to announce Mobidict 1.0 which lets you read azw/mobi dictionaries on Linux/Windows and macOS.

Binaries are available from https://github.com/ismail/mobidict/releases

I appreciate any testing & feedback.

Thank you!

Release History:

v1.1 - 04.06.2018
* Updated libmobi for better mobi file compatibility
* Windows/macOS binaries now use Qt 5.11 (upgraded from 5.10)
* Removed a hack used for broken mobi dictionaries.

v1.0 - 16.11.2017
* Initial release

I released a 1.1 update with better mobi support (Thanks to updated libmobi) and now Windows/macOS builds use Qt 5.11 (upgraded from 5.10).

Unfortunately it doesn't work for me, I tried it with 3 dictionaries taken from this page https://bookfere.com/en/dict:
The Italian one seems to load endlessly
That German one says corrupt
That "internet" one says corrupt the same

correcting me, the Italian dictionary works

Thanks for testing, if you use the official Kindle dictionaries (which you can download for yourself from the http://amazon.com/myk interface) it should work.

which version of lld you have installed. when i run your command i get following error
""Couldn't find any package whose name is "lld", but there are 74 packages which contain "lld" in their name:
(too many to show, the limit is 40)
Unable to apply some actions, aborting""
I installed lld (1:7.0-47) but i think something is wrong as ./build.sh command show following error
""clang: error: invalid linker name in argument '-fuse-ld=lld'
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.""

Sorry but when I tried, about 2-3 months ago, I was on another pc with another operating system (I had kali-linux-rollling) and now I can not see what version was lld, I tried to look for the package on
repology but somehow is not listed .
I still own the hd and I could do a search when I have time, if in the meantime you have not solved
