KOreader install 2 or more dictionaries on Kobo Clara HD

Tried KOreader's internal dictionary download menu, but all the files I sought to download declared to be empty, 0 bytes, so transferred to https://github.com/koreader/koreader...ionary-support, and downloaded and installed Wiktionary EN-EN. Works great, but only after I unzipped the file into
Code:
.adds/koreader/data/dict
. Just the zip file alone is not recognized.

So now how do I install DE-EN, ES-EN, FR-EN etc dictionaries from https://www.wikdict.com/page/download into this folder. As zip files they are not recognized, and unzipped they all have a similar structure as to file-names. So they have to be unpacked into their own folders. But KOreader does not recognize these folders.

How do I get it to recognize them?

Yup. Downloads broken until server is up. See https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...61&postcount=2

You unzip dictionaries on whatever folder you want inside the dict folder. They will get picked the next time you open KOReader

Just make sure you're downloading proper, supported, dictionaries (in stardict format), like the ones in https://github.com/BoboTiG/ebook-reader-dict

Actually, no, it hasn't worked like that. For the first dictionary I installed, works fine. All subsequent additions, no matter how installed, are ignored. But at least I have an English dictionary,

Please review the wiki page again and try with one of the supported dictionaries. Smells like a PEBKAC.

Here's a quick setup:

Code:
ls .config/koreader/data/dict/ -al
total 20
drwxr-xr-x 5 pazos pazos 4096 mar 27 16:44  ./
drwxr-xr-x 4 pazos pazos 4096 oct 16  2022  ../
drwxr-xr-x 2 pazos pazos 4096 mar 27 16:42 'CyberLexicon(En-Es)'/
drwxr-xr-x 2 pazos pazos 4096 mar 27 16:42 'Old High German-English Wiktionary'/
drwxr-xr-x 3 pazos pazos 4096 mar 27 16:42 'Pape: Handwörterbuch der griechischen Sprache'/
Now, see the attached screenshot
