The Sindarin dictionary project

Words -- so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them. [N. Hawthorne]

Dragon Flame 2.0 for Linux

Dragon Flame is now also available for Linux systems. As the original Windows version, it includes the Sindarin dictionary, additional lexicons and a complete Sindarin corpus.

The archive (compressed with TAR and BZIP2) contains the source code, the Makefile, the kdevelop3 project, all necessary data files, and even a binary executable.

If you wish to rebuild the executable, the project can be opened with kdevelop3. This might not be necessary (make -k should also compile everything correctly). The source code provided in this version has been adapted for Linux and might slighly differ from the Windows version (code merging is postponed to a later release). It has also been modified to use Qt3 (standard on Linux). To recompile it, you will therefore also need the "qt3-dev" package (whereas "qt3" is sufficient to run the executable).

Note that the archive does not include any Tengwar font. You will have to download them separately and to install them on you Linux box (assuming the support for TrueType fonts is enabled).

This port was contributed by Sylvain "Turb" Veyrié. Many thanks to him!

Download Dragon Flame 2.0 for Linux and simply enjoy!
