Question Japanese language tool for GTK+


Hi all,

In my older installs of Linux I used to use an utility called Kiten, a Japanese dictionary/learning aid for KDE that uses dictionary files from XJDIC and works really well. Since Kubuntu took the jump to KDE 4 I am (for now) less inclined to it, so I'm on XFCE now. I would like to know if there is any tool similar to Kiten for GTK+, as:
- installing Kiten would mean installing most of the KDE 4 library set, which I think is at least impractical, and
- installing XJDIC itself didn't work for me - I'm having Japanese input woes, it's supposed to work with kterm but I couldn't get SCIM to work with kterm, and while it works with XFCE's terminal emulator XJDIC itself seems to have issues - that may be related to how the XFCE terminal passes input characters to XJDIC. This limits my use of XJDIC - I can only use it to search by English meaning (as I can't input Japanese to it). And by the way, SCIM works elsewhere (including here).

Thanks in advance.

Ubuntu 8.10
1) Kiten 4-1-3 seems to work fine in KDE 3.5.10.
( I kept all KDE 4.1.3 after installing 3.5.10 )
'kde 3.5.10' from http://apt.pearsoncomputing.net/

2) Kiten 3.5.10 : You will have to recompile kdeedu
http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy-updates/kiten
[kdeedu_3.5.10.orig.tar.gz]
[kdeedu_3.5.10-0ubuntu1~hardy1.diff.gz]

3) Other similar apps :

Whoa, thanks! Following the links you posted I was able to find even more than what I hoped for, and will perhaps even be able to push harder (and make better use of my free time, which is become more and more scarce by the day)!
