Description: OpenDict is free multiplatform dictionary program. It is made to be universal and easy to use for desktop users and developers.
Comment 1 Aurimas Černius 2011-04-09 16:57:53 EDT
Since as stand-alone program it has limited value, I think that plugins from bug 695027 should be made as requirement for this package. I haven't done that yet.
Comment 2 Aurimas Černius 2011-04-13 16:47:11 EDT
The current homepage of OpenDict is down. However, the old one is still available:

OpenDict package is available for Debian:
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2011-05-03 05:08:19 EDT
Just a look at the spec:

> %{_datadir}/applications/*

Most likely the following applies:

> %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor/*


> %{_datadir}/locale/*


> %{_datadir}/opendict/*

Thanks for comments.
I've uploaded new versions of both files, corrected accordingly.

 Please inform upstream about the wrong FSF postal address.

Usually the files section comes after the posts.

"%patch1 -p0 -b .mkdirs" -- That should say "symlink", I suppose.
Comment 6 Volker Fröhlich 2011-06-30 18:06:31 EDT
Please increment the release number for every new version you publish and write the changelog.
Comment 7 Aurimas Černius 2011-07-26 16:15:43 EDT
I contacted upstream authors and they suggested to switch to StarDict, as OpenDict has almost no development. Thus, I withdraw my request and will probably switch to packaging StarDict lithuanian dictionaries.
