I have installed Oxford English Dictionary version 8 (OALD8) software in Ubuntu 18.04 but I am unable to launch the software. I had followed the installation procedure as described in the thread How to Install OALD8 on Ubuntu 14.04 x64?, but after the step three, that is after making my icon executable I am still not able to launch the application.
After clicking my application icon nothing is happening. I tried opening the application via command line using the shell file 'run-oald8.sh', which is inside the installed application folder, and that too is giving me the same result.
I shall describe the steps that i followed for installing the software as follows
- First I copied the contents of the CD into my system
I then executed the setup file using the commands
cd linux ./setup.data/bin/Linux/x86/setup
Now I installed the packages required for the oald8 libraries to work using the command
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386 libpangoxft-1.0-0:i386 libpangox-1.0-0:i386
After that I installed gtk2-engines-pixbuf:i386 and gtk2-engines-murrine:i386 using the command
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf:i386 gtk2-engines-murrine:i386
I also installed the atk-bridge package using the command
sudo apt-get install libatk-adaptor:i386
Finally I made the desktop icon executable
Now please tell me where did I go wrong or what I should do to make this software work?
