    [App] IDic for ITouch.

    Hi,

    I'm currently porting my IDic application on the Itouch. I put online an early version on my web page: http://francois.pessaux.perso.neuf.fr/creations.html
    Even if it is currently limited to spell-check, it will evolve in the next days in order to recover all the functionalities of its seed (Mérimé, IDic), meaning add of simple verification of words existence, search of words corresponding to a pattern, selection of different dictionaries, user interface a bit more ... "sexy"

    ... and may be more.

    So, currently, this is a version straight out of the over, that works (that sufficient for my all-day usage

    ) but that is clearly not beautiful

    Up to day, the hard-wired dictionary is the French one (one can wonder why... eh that's the one I daily use

    ) but I will add the numerous other one already available in IDic.
    However, I wished to let you know the existence of this early port, and feel free to have a look or a test

    New version (0.3)

    Hi,

    I completely wrote again the application. The engine was not modified but the user interface was completely changed.
    In the current version, the French dictionary is still hardwired, but I modified the underlying architecture to easily provide new dictionaries.
    User interface is a bit fancier. Options are not still working but the user help is now much sexy

    Now, the urgent task is to provide as soon as possible different dictionaries (the English one of course, but any other one will come by the way).
    I know I also still have a small memory leak to fix (40 bytes some times)

    I must admit I never wondered about play on the words in other tongues than French.
    I'll consider finding a better name ... when the soft is more advanced

    features were added.

    )).
    Options are saved. Some minor feature are still missing but the engine is already working.
    For more details... The link above is still valid

    Uh, do I ssh this into /Applications? Because when I do it's just a big icon, and the app crashes when I open it.

    Arg... Yep. I appologize.

    I tried to ssh it, and it fails... I have "too" big icon, an indeed the application doesn't run... Even with a chmod +x on it.

    I guess I missed something for jailbroken-transfer-by-SSH. The fact is that I always transfered it on jailbroken devices, but from XCode.
    So may be I missed a step to make the binary download-able by ssh.

    I'll investigate to correct my stuff.
    Thank's for the report.
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    Right,

    I succeeded in making the application working by applying the well-known "chmod a+x" on IDicTouch while in the IDicTouch.app AND "ldid -S IDidTouch" (still while in the IDicTouch.app directory).

    However, I still have this %?&!! "too big" icon although it has the recommended (dixit Apple) size (57x57)

    The question is now, is it normal for the end-user to apply "ldid" himself or did I miss something ?..
    Sorry, I'm a newbee in workaroung-ing Apple stupid barriers. Advices from masters in the domain are welcome

    Anyway, I will go on understanding the problem.

    As I wrote in the second part of my previous message (I found the workaround after I post the first reply where I confirmed having the same problem than you had, so I added a second answer that got merged because the 2 posts were close in the time).

    So the principle is to transfer IDicTouch.app in /Applications. Then, open a shell ssh on your ITouch. Go to the Applications directory (cd /Applications/IDicTouch.app). Set the excetution bit (chmod a+x IDicTouch). Finally, invoke ldid (ldid -S IDicTouch). Turn your device off, then on.

    It should work. For me it worked However, you'll still have the uggly icon

    --- Edit
    By the way, I may be found the reason of the "too big" icon... It was 128x128 indeed. I guess that when downloading via XCode there is a resizing done I don't know why and this doesn't arise when simply copying the binary via ssh.
