Thread: remote desktop and dictionary

  1. #1

    Default remote desktop and dictionary

    Hello,

    look for a dictionary, no problem, but i dont know the packages to install for more language packs offline, GUI, KDE at least, german - english is okay, more would be better. mate dictionary 1.6, several languages, online i guess, didnt works - error:

    Code:
    Error while looking up definition
    
    No definitions found for 'hallo'
    Is there any remote desktop on terminal or GUI, Linux to Linux, through internet, and an instruction?

    Look for the myspell dictionaries in YaST.
    Code:
    hunspell -D
    shows the ones you have installed.
    Enter Ctrl C after this command as there is a bug in it which means it does not exit properly after displaying its results.

    I am not sure what you want; you say 'offline dictionary' which to me means a dictionary on your computer - apart from myspell, there is aspell and ispell but myspell is the most common one.

    You can add as many languages as each dictionary supports by using YaST>Software Management.

    If you want a translator rather than a dictionary, this is normally done online. You don't have to install anything. Just open a browser.

    Each of the major search engines support both website and document translation, eg
    http://translate.google.com/
    http://translation.babylon.com/
    (Note that Babylon installed locally is Windows Only)
    http://www.bing.com/translator

    If you're a software developer, widgets that expose an API to various online translators are generally available but most have restrictions and/or not free to use.
    If you're looking for an offline translator, which means software that is installed locally on your machine, I haven't found any free, open source projects that can do the job as well as the online translators (that I've found). For many, the simple problem is that no public databases of translations are generally as good because of the complexity of idioms and native phraseology.
