Building Webster's Hypertext Gateway for dictd on ubuntu 20.04

Building Webster's Hypertext Gateway for dictd on ubuntu 20.04

Build and Installation 

Packages :


Installation :

1. $ sudo apt install dict dictd dictzip

2. $ sudo dpkg -i dictd-dicts-web1913_0.1.0-11mdk_all.deb
   $ sudo dpkg -i dictd-dicts-wn_0.1.0-11mdk_all.deb
   $ sudo dpkg -i dictd-dicts-easton_0.1.0-11mdk_all.deb
   I made the following adjustment's :

   $ sudo vi /etc/dictd/dictd.conf 
		# Site section here:

		global {
		# bind to local interfacea only
		# Access section here:
		access {
		allow *
		allow localhost
		# this allows access only from local host
		allow inetd
		# this allows access from inetd server
   This above config binds dictd to all interfaces and allows access
   from all network interfaces. Check with $ dict <word> to see if 
   it works.

3. The Webster's Hypertext Gateway for dictd 
   dict-webinterface_1.12.1+dfsg-8_amd64.deb is a hardwired binary
   which has its FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) hostname
   compiled into the binaries :

   %define HOSTNAME

   One will need to rebuild the 
   source package dict-webinterface-1.12.1+dfsg-8.sdeb using
   the tool /usr/bin/debbuild (See README.sdeb). Download 
   the perl script debbuild from here : 

   -rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 70055 Jan 14  2021 debbuild*
   SHA1(debbuild)= f1ba556ec72d41810c2e07d852dd652ad545ca3c
   MD5(debbuild)= 69d071ad10bb4a25aa31ea75815f6e9e

   The contents of the source .sdeb package, which is also
   a tar file can be listed with :

   $ tar tvf dict-webinterface-1.12.1+dfsg-8.sdeb
-rw-r--r-- root/root    186312 2022-03-14 19:14 SOURCES/dict-webinterface.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- root/root      8010 2022-03-14 21:19 SOURCES/dict-1.10-color-https-v2.patch
-rw-r--r-- root/root       518 2022-03-14 21:20 SOURCES/dict-1.10-br.patch
-rw-r--r-- root/root      1253 2022-03-14 21:23 SOURCES/dict-1.10-host.patch
-rw-r--r-- ubuntu/ubuntu  1406 2006-11-02 03:29 SOURCES/dict-favicon.ico

-rw-r--r-- root/root      2886 2022-03-14 23:24 SPECS/dict-webinterface.spec

4. Setting up the perl script 'debbuild' to compile .deb binaries from
   RPMS source packages :

   $ sudo cp -p debbuild /usr/bin/debbuild
   $ sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/debbuild
   $ sudo mkdir /usr/src/debian
   $ cd /usr/src/debian
   $ sudo apt-get install devscripts
   $ sudo apt-get install build-essential
   $ sudo apt-get install alien
   $ sudo apt-get install pax
   $ cd /usr/src/debian
   $ sudo tar xvf dict-webinterface-1.12.1+dfsg-8.sdeb
   $ cd SPECS/
   $ sudo vi dict-webinterface.spec

   adjust the FQDN hostname in the line with %define HOSTNAME into e.g.:
   %define HOSTNAME
   when your webserver has this FQDN hostname configured, and works as such
   on the Internet. And also bump up the version numer from 8 to 9 :

   Release:        9
5. Prerequisite(s) for installation of apache2 on Ubuntu.
   Setting up your apache2 server :

   $ sudo apt install apache2 apache2-bin apache2-data apache2-utils
   $ sudo apt install libapache2-mod-php
   $ sudo a2enmod cgi
   $ sudo a2ensite default-ssl.conf
   $ sudo a2enmod ssl
   $ sudo systemctl restart apache2
   Next configure your certificates. One can e.g. obtain SSL certificates 
   from the ACME server. Or one can for tesing purposes
   create a Self-Signed SSL Certificate :

6. Rebuilding dict-webinterface_1.12.1+dfsg-8_amd64.deb 

   $ cd /usr/src/debian/SPECS
   $ sudo sudo debbuild -v -ba dict-webinterface.spec

   See dict-webinterface.buildlog

   $ cd /usr/src/debian/DEBS/amd64
   $ sudo dpkg -i dict-webinterface_1.12.1+dfsg-9_amd64.deb

Description: Webster's Hypertext Gateway for dictd
 The Webster Hypertext Gateway interface provides a point-and-click client
 interface (for non-linemode browsers) for accessing various dictionary
 services on the Internet. It uses apache2 mod_cgi and interfaces
 with dictd which is open at port 2628.
 To use type the word for which you want the definition in the search
 window, click to select either an exact match or an approximate match,
 and then click on the "Look up definition" button. Words in the
 resulting definition are hypertext linked back into the dictionary,
 allowing you to use your mouse to access the definition of those
 related (and unrelated) words.
That should do it. Here's a screenshot:
