[New Fedora Package] Tagaini Jisho – A Japanese dictionary and study assistant

Dear fellow Japanese language students, rejoice. I've been using the app in title for a while, but I finally got around to do a proper Fedora package and push it to Fedora ;-) So installing is now super easy.

  • For Rawhide:
    su -c 'yum install tagainijisho'
  • For Fedora 17 and Fedora 18 (I decided not to support Fedora 16 as it's going to be EOLed shortly):
    su -c 'yum install tagainijisho'

Tagaini Jisho is a cool piece of software, an irreplaceable tool for anyone learning Japanese. You can use it not only as a Japanese-%{your-language} dictionary/kanji search tool, you can also use it to learn the words, and to learn the Japanese characters. Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji – all included, and with animated stroke order diagrams! More info on Some screenshots bellow:

Update 2013/02/21: Tagaini Jisho has been tagged to stable repos for Fedora 17 onward. The issue with dictionaries mentioned in comments is also fixed in that push. Enjoy!

For me, app was failing to start with "Fatal: kanjidic2 plugin fatal error: no language database present!"
because tagainijisho-dic-en was not pulled (only tagainijisho-dic-tr was pulled).

Perhaps my yum langpack is not configured...

Looks like the English version is not optional :-/ Can you file a bug? The langpacks part will start to work when comps are updated in the repos.

I tried to install it but I couldn't. It shows nothing when I search it with Apper.
I'm using Fedora 18

Do you know why?

Thanks very much!

@La Brujita Sylvia: It takes a while to actually get into repos and mirrors after it's tagged. In the meanwhile it's still in updates-testing repo ;-)
