I don't think it's possible to run it currently, as you can't launch qutebrowser's Python interpreter shipped with qutebrowser. See https://github.com/qutebrowser/qutebrowser/issues/3321 > It would be nice to have a way of installing new dictionaries from > within qutebrowser, rather than having to find a script and run it. > This would improve the already great user experience :-) I agree! The reason for the script was that it needs root to install dicitonaries on older Qt versions (< 5.10) and you wouldn't want to run qutebrowser as root.
