    I get the same thing. File a bug report upstream.

    Seems like it's there already and this problem existed in 11.1 as well?

    Well, the novell bugzilla is one place. Although that's not what I meant when I said "upstream" Here is more what I meant. StarDict | Get StarDict at SourceForge.net

    Looks like it has not been worked on for a while since it existed in 11.1. Apparently you need recompile espeak with portaudio. I don't know if I should do that in openSUSE as I have no experience with rpm. I tried to launch it with --disable-audio but still the same.
    I think I'll have to use wordweb with wine in the meantime, unless anyone knows a good offline dictionary for linux?
