What works

1. Installation works (but installs not those dictionaries that were selected bu user).
2. It shows lvagent icon in system tray.
3. Icon in system tray has working popup menu.

Only with native MSXML3:
3. It shows main windows (ugly).
4. It translates (but only english=>russian and russian=>english, because it seems to be impossible to select source/destination language).

What does not

1. It very often shows "internal error" (but pressing OK makes it to continue working).
2. It's almost impossible to use menus (because after opening menu it shows "internal error" which makes menu to close).
3. It seems to be impossible to select another language (see "2" and "4") (however, it's possible to reverse translation direction using Ctrl+I shortcut).
4. Feature "synchonize source language with keyboard language" doesn't work -- it always switches source language to english.
5. Buttons are too small (especially, "source language", "destination language" and "reverse direction" -- they're very hard to click).


What was not tested

Only basic functionality was tested.

Additional Comments

1. Native (microsoft) MSXML3 should be installed -- otherwise Lingvo even doesn't start (only shows tray icon). 2. You cannot change source/destination language, however you can reverse them using Ctrl+I. (Feature "synchonize source language with keyboard language" in options should be turned off.) 3. Appropriate fonts should be selected in options, otherwise it displays rectangles instead of many letters.

It appears this feature started to work in recent Wine versions. Unfortunately it's not compatible with many modern versions of programs such as web browsers, see here for more information:

With Mozilla Firefox 2.0 in Wine, this feature works, but running such an outdated version is a serious security risk.
