dictionaries for KnownDict



  • There used to be an offline dictionary app for UT: KnownDict. It's not in the store currently, but the code is still around and still runs:

    @doniks said in Moving to UBports now:

    @guru I have good memories of knowndict as well! Seems its enough to

    bzr branch lp:knowndict
    cd knowndict 
    clickable --sdk 16.04
    

    I get through the wizard. But I cant remember anymore how to put a dictionary in there :-P

    In order to really use the app one has to manually find and install a "stardict" formatted dictionary though. But I'm stuck with this: Where do I find useful dictionaries? All I can find are old and defunct websites and strange .exe files.

    If nobody else feels like, I could compile it and push it to the store (I'm not promising to do any meaningful development with it though). But if I can't even use it myself, that doesn't make much sense.



  • I have some dictionaries in my piles:

    You may also search for goldendict dictionaries which is the successor and compatible.



  • @guru great. Do you have a good link where one can get some?

    No, sorry. I could only upload them to some place of the community.
