By the way, the tar in Maemo can't handle *.bz2 so you can't untar in the typical way. Do it like this:

Code:
bzcat stardict-comn_dls03_cyber_lexicon_en-es-2.4.2.tar.bz2 | tar xv

Funny story, I'm working with Tomas Dominikowski on Qstardict as well and it was almost ready 1 month ago. It's a pitty I got sick and could not finish the work. All source code with maemo changes is at Stardict's svn at garage, please check it. I'll also check your changes. I think we should not have two separate projects for this program as they are almost equal.

We are a bit further along in the project, I've optified the package, added required Maemo fields, Eugene (turist) is changing the interface to be more touch-friendly, I'll try concepting the UI. But we want to release something that works very soon.

Actually, the same day that I wanted to upload our package to devel, I noticed qstardict already in the queue, so I was a bit "late". Anyway, we don't want to compete, we'd rather work together.

Since this is basically a fork of QStardict for Frementle, we're also planning to change the name, are you with us @SR?

just download dictionary file and extract it to any folder on N900,then go to QStarDict -> Config -> Plugins -> stardict press a setting icon then press PLUS to add your dictionaries folder....DONE

Grab dictionaries here:
http://xdxf.revdanica.com/down2/inde...ormat=StarDict

Or here:
http://stardict.sourceforge.net/Dictionaries.php

Make a directory and put the .bz2 files you download into /home/user/MyDocs/dict. Then you need to untar them.

Example:
Code:
mkdir /home/user/MyDocs/dict

wget 
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/xdxf/stardict-comn_sdict05_eng-spa-2.4.2.tar.bz2

bzcat stardict-comn_sdict05_eng-spa-2.4.2.tar.bz2 | tar xv
Then in the qdictstar settings, select the "dict" directory and qstardict will use them. It searches subdirectories automatically.

Good luck. Would be nice if this could be done within the program as this is going to be a stumbling block for many users. Or even better, make .debs of various dictionaries and users can just install them to /opt/qstardict/dicts or somesuch.
