I imagine you talk about Wiki integration. I had this issue with older version. Then I needed to build it from source, as some changes were necessary, due to changes at other party. This was some months ago, thou – zetah Apr 26 '12 at 13:47

My situation is the same with Javier. And I did it following you. But I still cannot see the images(Wikipedia) in GoldenDict. I saw every step is successful. – user97849 Oct 15 '12 at 16:21

Open terminal, then make sample work folder and grab Golden Dict source:

git clone

Goto cloned folder: cd goldendict

Unlike common use, file configure lists which packages are needed for building Golden Dict. Get them with apt-get:

sudo apt-get install libvorbis-dev zlib1g-dev libhunspell-dev x11proto-record-dev qt4-qmake libqt4-dev g++ libxtst-dev libphonon-dev

Now run: qmake and then make

If everything turns fine, you'll have file goldendict in current folder. Then just copy it to preferred folder, and try it:
