    Linux and Russian

    I just switched over to a Linux Fedora operating system due to the fact that my old laptop kept crashing to the Blue Screen of Death and then was stolen out of the repair shop. The good news is that they gave me a better laptop in compensation, The bad news is that i am having a hard time finding compatible software for learning Russian. Does anyone know of any programs that I can download onto a Linux OS by per chance???

    .................Hmmmmmm??

    There's a *lots* of free programs for Linux -- which one do you need?

    If, for example, the question is only in browsing russian web-resources -- all decent Linux browsers I know (Mozilla, Konqueror, Galeon, etc.) are working with cyrillic without extra efforts.

    I use Firefox browser. But I need things like Interlex Vocab programs such as Kwatts has been donating files for. It turns out that I can't get Linux to work with Interlex or any online translators. I have no problems using cyrilics.

    PS I don't plan on going back to Internet Explorer and Microsoft EVER! I'm sick of their crap!

    Wow, let me shake your hand!
    But it's a big deal to make Linux work with Russian, especially if you want to have a deep support of Russian (i.e. Russian filenames, Russian network shares, etc). And it's better to remember that Linux is command line, not graphical interface and start turn your Linux to Russian with locale. Unfortunately, I'm not skilled in Fedora Core tuning, but if you had Debian, I would can help you with more detail advices
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.

    Just came across:

    Начальник - секретарю:
    - Катенька, дорогая, перепиши месячную отчетность нашим партнерам, они сейчас к тебе подойдут.
    - Добрый день, это вам переписать oтчетность?
    - Добрый день, да, будьте так любезны, вот чистая дискета, можно на нее.
    - Да, конечно.

    Вставляет в дисковод. И....

    # mkfs -t vfat -c /dev/fd0h1440
    # mount -t vfat -o iocharset=koi8-r,codepage=866 /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
    # find / -noleaf -type f -name Otchet_april. [a-zA-Z] -exec cp '{ }' /mnt/floppy \;
    # ls -la /mnt/floppy/Otchet_april. [a-z][A-Z] && sync && sleep 3

    - Возьмите пожалуйста!

    Партнеры.
    - Ниии*уууя себе!!!
    - Что такое?!... Я опять отмонтировать забыла?!

    Нет, чтобы Катеньке поставить себе последнюю версию KDE или Gnome и не заниматься извращениями.

    Катенька выёживается, имхо. хватило бы 2 короткие команды. Во первых дискету форматировать не обязательно, если она пустая, во вторых файлы киррилицей обычно мало кто называет и при монтированнии девайса поддержку можно было бы не ставить...в третьих зачем искать файл с отчетом по всему диску...она что, не знает где он у нее лежит?
    The bear looked at the car, and reflections of fire danced in his eyes. He knew what to do.

    Она же секретарша, откуда её знать где чё лежить :)
    И тем более она не знает пустая/форматированная дискета или нет.

    Thanks for the help Scorpio but none of those links are active anymore. I am now reading the big, fat, huge and ugly book on Linux.

    As for me, first link ( http://www.chat.ru/~mueller_dic ) works OK.

    "Slowo" project really moved. Now it's homepage seems to be at http://slowo.newmail.ru/ -- all the files mentioned above are easy to find there.

    Also go to www.winehq.com

    I use linux too. Be welcome!
