[solved] diction
« on: May 14, 2012, 08:43:07 am »

Hello.  I think there was a diction package for older versions of Vector, but I can't find the package in Gslapt for VL7.0 standard.  My sources are:
vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/packages
vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/extra
vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/patches

Here's the source for Vector 6.0.

what kind of dictionary program you looking for?
stardict is in the extra repo if you want to try it...
maybe you can enable testing repo for some extra but untested program...

Diction is a command-line grammar checker.  It's not a problem, I used the aforementioned source, and installed that.  Works well.

I tried stardict, and did not like it.  It just seemed to feature ads for some guy name Yu Hueng.
