sorry for driving you crazy ;-)
I'm not really sure how you installed the dictionary. Did you follow the instructions on the website:http://dictionarymid.sourceforge.net/android.html
At what step did the installation of the dictionary fail? Was there an error message?
We are currently testing automatic installation of dictionaries. If you want to give it a try, you can get it here:http://dictionarymid.sourceforge.net/forum/index.php?topic=160.msg810#msg810
I just installed the English-Japanese dictionary using that testing version
. Running that version on my G1, the popular dictionary could be installed without a problem, but the normal one seems to be too big for automatic processing. I'll investigate into that matter...
If you have any further information, questions or problems, feel free to reply here!
