Download dictionaries not works on my PocketBook

"Dictionary settings/Download dictionaries" does not work on my PocketBook Touch Lux 5 and Touch Lux 4:

I have Wi-Fi connection set up correctly (e.g. fully functional in Browser). However, after selecting a dictionary for download, KoReader asks to turn on Wi-Fi (regardless of whether it is on), but the dictionary does not download.

Please, does anyone know how to make the dictionaries download work?

Alternatively, I could download the dictionaries on my computer and copy them manually to the "applications\koreader\data\dict" directory but I don't know from where to download them on computer.

There are a few open issues about Wi-Fi being wonky as hell on PB. We lack a PB maintainer (or users knowledgeable enough to look into it and fix it), so it's unlikely to get any better all on its lonesome .

The data from the curated list available in the UI is from here: https://github.com/koreader/koreader...ctionaries.lua

Thank you so much for the info and for your help. Unfortunately my knowledge does not allow me to become a PB maintainer

The PocketBooks put the Wi-Fi to sleep really fast and it doesn't seem to wake up on its own. What works most of the time for me is: Enable Wi-Fi, then immediately download.

I've heard that keeping the PocketBook webbrowser open in the background keeps the Wi-Fi awake, but I haven't tested it yet.

You're right, in my case opened webbrowser helped. In this state, both the dictionaries download and the check for update are functional.

Thank you very much.

I have assigned the Wi-Fi activation to one of the keys. When I want to perform a specific operation that requires Wi-Fi (check Wikipedia, synchronise the reading position between devices, download an update...), I press that key (I wait a few seconds for the connection to be established) and perform the action. It's not ideal, but at least I don't have to exit KOReader to activate Wi-Fi.
