Kobo H20 & koreader unable to see dictionaries

Hi all

I am using a Kobo H20 and the latest release of koreader. I haven't installed dictionaries for a while but I did today (they used to work fine). They are in stardict 2.4.2 format, the following unzipped folders have been moved into the correct place and the Kobo rebooted:

mwh@NewAir:/Volumes/KOBOeReader/.adds/data/dict$ ls
stardict-Collins_Thesaurus-2.4.2
stardict-Oxford_English_Dictionary_2nd_Ed._P1-2.4.2
stardict-Macmillan_English_Thesaurus-2.4.2
stardict-Oxford_English_Dictionary_2nd_Ed._P2-2.4.2


If I go to the relevant koreader menu it says Installed dictionaries (0) in greyed-out text. I have also tried moving the various .dict.dz and .idx files straight into the /dict/ directory without their enclosing folders but this doesn't seem to work either.

Can somebody please advise me what I am doing wrong?

Many thanks

M

Normally it should be .adds/koreader/data/dict, unless that's merely a typo in the post.

You can also download some dictionaries through the program itself and follow their example.
