    I will try to be more detailed, let me know if you get stuck at some point.

    1. Open a terminal (Applications -> Accessory -> Terminal)

    2. On the terminal change the directory to the place where you have copied the CD. For instance if you copied it in your home directory and it's called LDOCE5 the you have to do
    Code:
    cd LDOCE5
    3. Go to the linux subdirectory
    Code:
    cd linux
    4. Then execute the installer
    Code:
    linux32 ./setup.sh

    How did you mount the iso?
    Can you see it on Nautilus (the file manager)?
    You just have to navigate to the linux directory of the CD and execute setup.sh, but if you have a 64bit OS you have to do it from the command line with linux32 ./setup.sh

    I also have it on an iso. This is what I do.

    1. Open a terminal: Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (on Ubuntu since 10.04 the shortcut is ctrl-alt-T).

    2. Mount the iso
    a. Create the directory where you will mount it if you didn't before. In the terminal execute:
    Code:
    cd /media
    sudo mkdir iso
    b. Mount the LDOCE iso
    Code:
    sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop <path_to_LDOCE.iso> /media/iso
    You have to replace <path_to_LDOCE.iso> with the actual path to where you have the LDOCE iso.

    3. Navigate to the linux directory of the iso:
    Code:
     cd /media/iso/linux
    4. 4. Then execute the installer
    Code:
    linux32 ./setup.sh
    Note: Unlike in Windows, it will not check that you have original CD. That's great because I don't need to have the CD around. It's also easier to install illegal copies, but let's not get there

    5. Once you have installed it, you can unmount the CD:
    a. First get out of the iso directory
    Code:
    cd /media
    b. Then unmount it
    Code:
    sudo umount iso
    If the command line is still difficult to you, try this:

    1. Install the package nautilus-open-terminal. You can use the Ubuntu Software Center, Synaptic or even simpler, the terminal
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nautilus-open-terminal
    2. Mount it like you did before or as I just explained.
    On Nautilus there is an option "Open with Archive Mounter", but for me it doesn't work.

    3. Using Nautilus navigate to the contents of the iso. If you mounted as I told you, you will see a new entry called iso under Devices on the left panel. Click on it.

    4. Enter the linux directory. Once there right click (but not over a file) to show the context menu and choose Open in Terminal.

    5. Then execute
    Code:
    linux32 ./setup.sh
    I hope this time you succeed, good luck!

    Re: HOWTO: Install LDOCE5 on Ubuntu 64-bit

    Thank you for the post.

    Recently I got a new Dell Latitude E6410 and installed Ubuntu 10.10 x86_64. After data migration (easy shot using tar & netcat & untar ^^), I found the LDOCE5 setup script doesn't work on 64-bit Linux due to the same error.

    Your tip really helped to work around the issue

    I just copied the linux and ldoce5.data folder to the HDD and renamed the ldoce5/linux/setup.data/bin/x86 to amd64 and it worked.

    I've been stuck with uninstalling ldoce5 on one of my arch linux installation with error "Could not find a usable uninstall program. Aborting." I did something similar, looked into the uninstall scripts in the installation folder and was able to manually uninstall completely.

    It's the same path construction problem.

    Code:
    if which loki-uninstall 2> /dev/null > /dev/null || type -p loki-uninstall 2> /dev/null > /dev/null; then
    UNINSTALL=loki-uninstall
    else
    UNINSTALL="$HOME/.loki/installed/bin/`DetectOS`/`DetectARCH`/uninstall"
    if test ! -x "$UNINSTALL" ; then
    echo Could not find a usable uninstall program. Aborting.
    exit 1
    fi
    fi
    "$UNINSTALL" -L ldoce5 "/usr/local/ldoce5/.manifest/ldoce5.xml" "$1"
    This /usr/local/ldoce5/.manifest/scripts/preun.sh can be used as reference to manually uninstall ldoce5.

    I have to say LDOCE5 rocks, works perfectly on all OS (Mac, Linux and Windows), unified UI (thanks to Mozilla framework). But some minor issues with their scripts LOL

    BTW: I have to manually mount the LDOCE5 DVD, it won't mount automatically like other CD/DVDs, not sure why.

    Code:
    mount -t iso9660 /dev/dvd /media/cdrom
    Anyway manual labor works. In case other Ubuntu dudes run into the same problem.

    HI
    I use Archlinux 64 Bit
    I want to execute it but I receive an Error like this

    Code:
    [eman@eMan-PC linux]$ linux32 ./setup.sh
    ./setup.sh: line 201: /home/eman/.setup15066: No such file or directory
    ./setup.sh: line 201: /home/eman/.setup15066: No such file or directory
    The setup program seems to have failed on x86/glibc-2.1
    
    Fatal error, no tech support email configured in this setup

    Try the other solution:
    Copy the whole cd to the hard disk, and rename ldoce5/linux/setup.data/bin/Linux/x86/ to ldoce5/linux/setup.data/bin/Linux/amd64/. Then run ldoce5/linux/setup.sh (after adding execute permission to setup.sh)
