kicker applet for ding libraries. does not require ding (but grep ;) you can get a package of dings from the gnome-ding project (button in the config dialog) usage is simple: either hover the applet and start typing after the bar appears or select a text with the mouse and leftclick the applet supports independent default languages for the click and the type search, acces to multiple dictionaries (including thesaurus), reverse search and a nice frontend including a skinnable applet icon the most probably result is exposed, any other can be clicked to be placed in the label todo: code cleanup, kspell support


- fix for the text formatting (on multi results)
put the diff.bz2 intothe kding dir, bunzip2 it and call
patch -p1 < kding-0.3-0.3.1.diff

- detection of double entries (ding dicts sometimes two entries that are identical in e.g german but different in english, in case they are the probable ones, both are displayed - try e.g. "hund")
- support for custom colors
- selectable and draggable text in the result label
- better detection of the most probable result
- fixed thesaurus display
- basic kspell support
- improved positioning and sizing

(patch 0.3 to 0.3.1)

Just run configure with --prefix=/path/to/kde/
This helped in my case. However kding 0.3.1 crashes kicker everytime I try to insert it. I use SuSe 9.3 Professional with KDE 3.4. If you want I can submit you the backtrace.

Thanks. The problem with adding kding is solved. But I got the same problem as you, kicker crashes.

When I add it to kicker kicker crashes (Kanotix/Debian Sid). BTW: There are two apps named kding. Wouldn't it be wise to communicate and either work together or rename the apps? -> http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=28386

Want excellent hardware recognition and an easy way to install Debian Sid? Get KANOTIX!

This app looks really great :) Do you plan to release a version for KDE 3.5?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
