    German verb conjugation software


    Under Windows I've used a language dictionary program for years named Ultralingua. It handles all my English/German and English/French needs. Fortunately, under Linux GoldenDict (with some dictionaries added to it) handles the word lookup stuff just as well. Unfortunately, it does not conjugate verbs like Ultralingua does. For French I've found a wonderful program named Le Conjugueur. It even has some features that Ultralingua does not. What a great find. Unfortunately, I have not found anything Linux-based for German. I tried to install the latest version of Ultralingua under WINE, but it crashed all over the place. I did finally get the very old version 5.03 to install, but it's a bit buggy. I would much rather install a native Linux app that conjugates German verbs. Yes, there are plenty of web pages that do it, but I'm not always in places with my laptop where I can get online. In cases like that, it's either boot to Windows or use that old version of Ultralingua under WINE. If anyone knows of any software I've overlooked, please speak up. I've googled around, but am just not finding it.

    Have you tried the latest (1.6) version of Wine? It is just released, and supposedly supports a lot more Windows applications than the older versions did.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Yes, that's what I'm using. I was excited that they worked out bugs that got one of my most important apps working (Treepad Business). However, sadly, the latest versions of Ultralingua don't work at all. At least I got that old, old version 5.03 to work, though it does sometimes crash.
