0.5 is up. I've added a "view" button on the display screen that will send the output to geany. You will only see this button if geany is installed on your system. Geany will wrap the lines in its display. I can't figure out how to wrap lines in an "edit" window using an input file within gtkdialog. Maybe someone reading can figure it out. You'll find the code in version 0.5 at /usr/sbin/psword on lines 560 thru 565.

Hey, no problem at all. I'm happy someone is using the program. It serves its purpose for me and keeps me from installing any of the big java/kde/gnome dependent programs.

I have the new version and it is working great with Geany.
And, yes, your program is definitely being used.
I really like it for daily reading without loading a big program, it is just right.

Thanks so much for updating it! Very Happy

Blessings,
Tom

I've been using it since you released it. Great study tool. I will try the new version too.

PostPosted: Thu 05 Feb 2009, 08:36    Post subject: manual module install  

I'm just wondering if you could help me.

Sometimes I don't have internet access and I want to include other modules, such as new bibles or dictionaries. Is it possible to download the module from crosswire from another computer, bring it to my computer using a USB stick, and then unzip it on my computer? Would psword still see the module? Or does psword absolutely have to get it direct from the internet?

yes it does, just download your bibles from
http://www.crosswire.org/sword/modules/ModDisp.jsp?modType=Bibles
and extract them to root.
There are 3 formats, The 'Raw ZIP format' worked for me. I manually installed a bible.

Thank you so much.

I just have one more question. Can psword handle dictionaries and lexicons and commentaries?

I haven't tried, but I don't think he has stated so, I'll try in a bit
If you want you can try an earlier testing model of livingwater based on puppy 4.0 it has Gnomesword built in and works for all that.

Much appreciation, ttuuxxx.

I did a bit of messing around with ISBE and StrongsHebrew in psword. I think I've found out what to do.

What I do is:

1) when I click on psword and the first screen comes up, I choose the relevant dictionary from the "bible version" list;

2) then I type in the relevant term in the "select your book" box, which normally starts with "Acts". I delete that and put in what I want. For example, in StrongsHebrew, I'll put in "06678". Or for ISBE, I'll put in "Aaron". Then I click "OK".

3) then when the next screen comes up, I leave everything as it is, leaving the book name and the relevant version/dictionary, and the "all" bit where it should be, and click "OK".

4) then the relevant dictionary information will come up.

But it's a bit difficult for ISBE, where there is NO text wrap and there may be loads of information on the page. But then I use the "export" button. The only thing is that it takes a while for the information to be put forward into Abiword/Geany. You may even get the impression that it's crashed because AbiWord can freeze for a while. But eventually it gets in. There'll be no proper paragraphing, but it's still better than nothing.

Hope this helps someone.

Thanks again ttuuxxx.

And also thanks to the GENIUS who made bible software for puppy. Thankfully crosswire has a few jewish sources/translations.

I notice that in /usr/share/books, Habakkuk is spelled Habakuk, which makes it so no reference in that book can be retrieved. When I changed it, it worked fine; this might be a good thing to fix in future releases.

I remember when I was fairly young, the preacher asked me during the service to read from the book of Hezekiah . . . and I fell for it. He loved to play jokes on people. For some reason, Habakkuk always reminds me of that.

You guys might be interested in xsword/cheatah, which is tiny, but quite basic http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=303610#303610

@ JasonFruit, thanks for letting me know about the Habakkuk book issue. I fixed it and posted an 0.6 version at the beginning of the thread.
