Ubuntu – Adding dictionaries to GoldenDict


I have GoldenDict installed in my Ubuntu 10.10. I am downloading A Spanish-English Dictionary in order to add it into the dictionary database of GoldenDict.

Once I add a path to search for the dictionary files and click on Rescan Now button in order to tell GoldenDict to index the new dictionary GoldenDict starts to index the dictionary and this process doesn't finish never. GoldenDict hangs on so that I need to kill it from the process. The dictionary I am trying to add is a file of 23.5Mb. I could add other dictionaries of 8-10Mb but not this one.

Any idea to solve my problem?

Goldendict is looping while attempting to import the dictionary, it is a bug, you should file a bug report: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs
