It’s now possible to make Abby Lingvo work with Linux without windows emulators, or more exactly to say, to use it’s dictionaries with Stardict. Abby uses locked file format for dictionaries (.lsd) so we need to convert each needed dictionary to an open one using the standard Abby converter for dictionaries.

  • Lingvo dictionaries in .dsl format
  • Compiler for dictionaries DslComp.exe with all essential libraries
