How reproducible:

5. Check results.
Actual results:

Comment 1 Hu Zheng 2008-04-07 07:04:27 UTC
StarDict program have no information of which dictionary will be installed at
all. There are 2000 dictionaries, and it is hard to determine which one is
suitable for which locale.
Yes, stardict need to be customized by the user him/herself. And, stardict is
designed for advance users at the beginning, who can find the dict manage window
and use it.

Any way, you can send me the patch.

Comment 2 Caius Chance 2008-04-07 07:10:06 UTC
At least zh_TW shouldn't have zh_CN dictionaries selected by default and vice versa?

Let's try to make it also usable for novice users.

Comment 3 Hu Zheng 2008-04-07 10:06:48 UTC
Nice, welcome to join stardict development and make it usable for novice! In
fact, this is just the weakness of me, I can make stardict satisfy every expert,
then novice even don't know how to use and setup it!

svn co stardict

I suppose we popup a window for default setting for different level people, and
a teaching guide window.

Very happy that you can join and make stardict easy to use!

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 5 Caius Chance 2008-08-04 06:07:33 UTC
Patched and built:

Currently the "defaultdict.cfg" needs population for different locales.

Created attachment 313309 [details]

Since I got no idea on WIN32 implementation, I am sending this patch file to upstream as idea and leave that to him.
