I installed this application (pretty small) ;)
but i don't know how to use it, and it uses Chinies dictionary (dict.cn) to give me the meaning of the words and sometimes it uses Linux man pages
don't know how to control this
also don't know how to include your file to this dictionary
also for Marcion can you provide smaller version without all the books and materials?

concerning stardict

just copy dictionary file into /usr/share/stardict/dic (global use) or $HOME/.stardict/dic (personal use) (if dic folder doesn't exist, create it) then unpack and restart stardict. new dictionaries ale immediately usable. in bottom right corner of stardict, second icon from right side ("manage dictionaries") you can see info about dictionaries and turn on/off them.

concerning marcion

you are absolutely right, marcion is robust for users, who are interested only in coptic language and they dont care about greek language and texts or gnosticism. I was started new subproject http://sourceforge.net/projects/mani/

iam not decided yet how mani should look - printed djvu version - yes or not, editable or not, and many details, tell me pls your opinion.

p.s. in section http://kame.danacbe.com/index.php/topic,270.msg1722.html#msg1722 you have uploaded utf8 version of all data, and here uncompiled stardict tabfile (only main words in simplified state), maybe it will be useful for you.

Thanks for providing us with all of that
I wonder have you wrote this dictionary alone?
I am asking cause I think its too hard for one person to make all this effort
about marcion, i think i will need to recompile my Qt to support DjVu :S :S :S
so sad that I am unable to response quicker to you

thanks, it is work not of my alone, because spirit of my father works with me. from beginning of this project it is everyday work + everyday prayer for finishing it. it can be called miracle, because naturally iam very lazy man ;D . so, iam only servant of my brothers, i hope that my work will be useful them to find way out from this dark place and to return back into the eternal light.

p.s. you dont need recompile now anything, marcion has now patch where is executable with statically linked qt and djvulibre (with "static" in filename), mani has package "static" also.

That's a very big effort, we all are thankful to you and to your father
I tried to copy the file to ~/.startdict/dic and it didn't work
I tried to copy the file to /usr/share/startdict/dic and it didn't work either
I tried to put the file in a folder /usr/share/startdict/dic/coptic/startdict-coptic.tab
but still nothing :S

this is missunderstanding, this tabfile is not for stardict itself, but for stardict-editor. you must install .tar.bz2 file. just run these commands in terminal:

Code: [Select]
cd ~/.stardict/dic
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/marcion/files/rc3/extras/StarDict/Coptic-English_all_dialects.tar.bz2/download
tar -xjf Coptic-English_all_dialects.tar.bz2

then (re)run stardict. This MUST works, in other case iam saying your computer and gentoo is cursed and obsessed by demon, and you need exorcism - and best way how to expell demon of this kind is BIG hammer  :D ;D :innocent:

No, it works now
very good dictionary and very good work
but i wonder why words like ⲧⲟⲧ- (as in ⲧⲟⲧⲕ ⲧⲟⲧϥ ⲧⲟϯ ⲧⲉⲛ ⲑⲏⲛⲟⲩ) doesn't exist?
other than that i think the dictionary is great
i will think of how to integrate it into kopdionary

dictionary for stardict is very simplified because of very simple stardict's db structure - marcion and mani contains all words from crum now, look at attached picture. marcion also can export coptic database in many formats for you, if you will install patch  :) . anyway, open previous tabfile in any text editor, you can use for coptionary its content also. iam happy for that you like my work, so enjoy  ;)
