How to change the language for KHangMan in KDE 3.0 or 3.1

In the KHangMan version shipped with KDE 3.0 and KDE 3.1, only words in English are available. If you want to replace the english words by one of the available other language (Catalan, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Serbian-Cyrillic, Serbian-Latin, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish or Tajik), please follow the instructions below. Note that you can have ONLY ONE language at a time with KDE-3.0 or 3.1. Please set your global font to Arial or URW Bookman (in KDE Control Center) for special characters in your language if necessary.

  1. Download here the language package that you want.
  2. mv language-data.tar.gz $KDEDIR/share/apps/khangman/data/
    where $KDEDIR is the directory where your KDE is installed (/usr or /opt/kde3 for example)
    You might need to be root to do so.

  3. cd $KDEDIR/share/apps/khangman/data/

  4. tar zxvf language-data.tar.gz
    tar jxvf language-data.tar.bz2
    where language is one of the 19 languages.
The four files easy.txt, medium.txt, hard.txt and animals.txt will overwrite the existing ones.
Start KHangMan to play in the new language.
