What works

Start program, tray icon, translating, editing preferences, dictionaries managing. It is necessary to add library msxml3 as native( can be found on installation disk) to start the program.

What does not

1) Register via internet 2) Pop-up translation 3) It very often shows "internal error" (but pressing OK makes it to continue working). 4) Sometimes after this error program freezez or flats out 5) Feature "synchonize source language with keyboard language" doesn't work. 6) The interface is very, VERY ugly. Basic functions work, but it is impossible to work normally on it.

Additional Comments

Native (microsoft) MSXML3 should be installed -- otherwise Lingvo even doesn't start (only shows tray icon) The lingvo 12 dictionaries can be converted to stardict format (there are tons of instructions "how to" in the internet - google 'lingvo linux') And, of cource, you can use totally free Stardict wwith free dictionaries. But anyway, Stardict is not a good alternative to Lingvo. Abby'd better make a Linux version of their dictionarry...

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With Mozilla Firefox 2.0 in Wine, this feature works, but running such an outdated version is a serious security risk.
