Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation (tested full install)
  • Starting application, quitting application
  • Interface in general, display of definitions, navigation

  • Help (except that it look odds for phonetics)
  • Audio pronunciation
  • Advanced search
  • notices d'auteur
  • print: to file (postcript) as well as to printer
  • explorateur: table of contents for a long entry
  • change font size
  • search within entry
  • move to previous or next visited entry

  • installation of patch to version 2.0/2.1 updating to 2.1.1
  • Uninstall of Le Petit Robert

What does not

  • odd display of the help page for phonetics (very minor issue)
  • Calling the uninstall executable for the program, from the Kmenu shortcut, would result in no action. Uninstalling from "Uninstall Wine Software" works fine. Has removed all except: one html file in the program folder and the shortcuts to start the program in the Kmenu.


What was not tested

  • Hyperappel (unlikely to work, never used it anyway)
  • some other display or navigation features
  • annotations
  • whether or not the fixes from the patch have been applied (its installation was a success, but I did not inspect if it did apply the specific fixes, and if that can be inspected at all; version number in About is the same though: 2.1)

Additional Comments

This review pertains to version 2.1: Le CD-ROM du Petit Robert, version électronique du Nouveau Petit Robert, dictionnaire alphabétique et analogique de la langue française. Copyright: 2001. I also tried it a year ago with wine 1.1.28. Had some annoyance when starting the program or closing it. Not anymore. Note: from time to time when you launch it, the software will ask you to insert the CD before proceeding further. I tried to fool it with an ISO copy (using Acetone ISO), but that did not work. It worked using the CD. Tested on 28/12/2010 and 06/01/2011 under openSUSE 11.1 x86_64 (latest updates), using Wine 1.3.10 on KDE 3.5 desktop.
