Assalamou Alaikom,
This is great. I'm able to give at least *1 hour* a day to help in KDE

and maybe more in the weekends.

That is great! I would suggest you take on the kdebase/ then.

Now, before I can reall help in translation, I need help in setting up

As I read in the translators FAQ that I must setup the Dictionary Database, but I couldn't get that
at all in RedHat 7.3. I'm using the RedHat updated KBabel (I think 0.9.6) still when I goto
Settings -> Configure Dictionary, I find only PO Auxiliary and PO compendium, but not
the Translation Database! It doesn't even appear in any other place.
I tried downloading version 1.1 and compile it. But still the same problem.

Am I missing the module or what?

No, you are not missing anything. Unfortunately that feature is no longer part of KBabel, so you will have to do without it.


Well, I checked with the kbabel mailing list (http://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kbabel/2003-March/000248.html) and the problem is that RedHat compiles KBabel without the DB2 support, and I was adviced to get the source and recompile.
I tried all the things that come to my mind. Downloaded the kbabel source (versions 0.9.5/6, 1.1, 1.2b) and tried to compile it, and it either failed or compiled but didn't get the option yet. I'm sure the I have the DB2 & DB2-devel packages needed for Configure Dictionary option.
I tried downloading RPM packages from rpmfind.net for RedHat and other distros as well but still the same problem. I tried downloading the SRPM pacakges and compiled them but still the same problem.
Now, when I try to use the PO Compendium I feel it's too slow. First, when I try to use KBabel dictionary, everytime I open it, it will read the full_wordlist.po file, then try to build the dictionary and that would take at least 10 minutes! Again, when you search it would take about 2 minutes just to search for a single word!
I see there's an option to compile the .po to .mo but still you can't use the .mo file!?!
After 4 days, 15 or more hours spent, trying and still I couldn't do it :(
It would be great, if brother Isam can just adjust the Arabeyes Translator FAQ, or maybe add to it the way one can configure and use PO Compendium for KBabel.

Sorry for the disturbance, but I did my best :(
