Thanks - I see, tcl is a dependency of tk.

@drankinatty, wnb (the GUI) depends on tk.

drankinatty commented on 2014-02-15 23:39

Why 'tk' for depends instead of 'tcl'? Just curious. I've been working with packaging wordnet for Archlinux TDE (as part of koffice/kthesaurus) and I have used tcl. Would tk be better?

wordnet.desktop & wordnet.png links are missing. Could you please update them?

Stebalien commented on 2013-11-07 21:38

Fixed. I didn't bother bumping the pkgrel.

The PKGBUILD should now have:


because !staticlibs has become the default in makepkg.conf, resulting in the striping of the only generated library needed by things like artha.

Thank you very much Stebalien! :)

@headkase, the 3.1 database files have been included and wordnet now builds.

Also Stebalien,

If you have to go through the trouble of fixing up this package perhaps there is another component you could add as you'll be there anyway:

On that page there is a database-only update which brings the data files up to 3.1. This package is 3.0, if the 3.1 database could be merged into it that would be spiffy too.. ;)

W00t, thank you Stebalien!
