    I had trouble downloading dic files with explorer. Explorer picks
    up on the .dic extension and thinks its text, some versions of
    Explorer crash.

    Can the *.dic files be supplied zipped or tar, gzip please.

    After using Konquorer on Linux to download the file, copied it to
    the Zarus and then moved it onto the Zebdic path, Zebdic does
    not seem to recognise the file. No activity when entering words
    to spell.

    Any ideas welcome.

    I'm having the same problem. Zaurus SL-5500, trying to
    download dictionaries with IE. They show up as text. I tried
    saving them as text and then renaming them (taking off ".txt"
    and using ".dic") but they are not recognized as valid by

    I have to think there's a simple solution, that I'm doing
    something wrong. Any ideas? I agree with the first poster
    that a zipped version should solve my proble,.

    I am not a developer but a new user and I have a

    I am having some success myself but it has been a
    struggle. One solution that has worked is connecting
    the Z to the internet (cf card modem) and download
    directly to an SD card. (it won't always download to the
    assigned address. One ends up putting it somewhere
    on the SD card then moving it to the correct
    destination). The default address for the smaller files
    is at /tmp which works OK. One can then use the file
    manager to move it to the correct
    destination: /mnt/card/QtPalmtop/share/zbedic. (I
    created the new folder "zbedic") This is sometimes
    tricky as it won't always paste when you want it to.
    Then the address needs to be added on the Zbedic
    application which comes with an extra /opt in the
    closest matching address it searches for.

    The English dictionary is just too big to go into /tmp
    (almost 11M). I didn't have enough memory. I managed
    to change the default address and downloaded it to
    directly to /mnt/card/QtPalmtop/share and then move
    it to the /zbedic folder. Everything seems to function at
    this point but there's got to be an easier way?!

    This seems to be quite old issue refering to older version
    of zbedic (.dic files). Therefore I am closeing this bug.
    Feel free to reopen this bug if the same happens in the new
    version (0.9.1 and later).
