 You can get them (not in .dawg format) here : ftp://ftp.openwall.com/pub/

 Licence is here : http://www.openwall.com/wordlists/LICENSE.shtml

My understanding is we cannot package these wordlist because the
license has some restriction incompatible with free license (there is
no restriction on selling or not Freerunner distributions).

Naïve question: why not using already package wordlists?
I found that w* packages contain wordlist under /usr/share/dict/. And
these one has a correct license.

Take a look at wfrench as example.

You can use them to generate .dawg files, as soon as you have qdawggen
on your computer.

I didn't have it, and I didn't wanted to compile Qtopia (or Qt ?) to get
it so I was happy to find these ready-to-use dawg files.

Very nice, typing works much better now. This was the only thing that was 
missing in qtmoko for me.

I only have one problem:

I'm unable to use the special characters like é or à and also symbols (.,?) do 
not work :-(
Somebody ideas to solve this?

I'v also added the information to the faq on the wiki

Kind regards

Tomas

 Just in case it is a cause for confusion - are you aware that the

Yep, as a previous user of this keyboard in SHR I am aware of that.

But thanks for your message :) I used prediction because of a lack of
a better term indeed.

So you write on your screen with your nail instead of stylus, and you
have a predictive behaviour ? How do you enable it ? Mine -- in french
-- doesn't seem predictive at all. Maybe I need to add a dictionary
somewhere...

And the keyboard named Predictive keyboard (the one from SHR ?)
doesn't seem to be predictive either :(

Ok :/

We just need to find a way to make prediction work so ! On SHR you only
had to install a dictionary of words somewhere, it should be the same here.

It seems ( http://qtmoko.org/wiki/FAQ ) we can add unpredictive=0 in
/opt/qtmoko/etc/default/Trolltech/PredictiveKeyboard.conf
and it seems there is an English dictionary in
/opt/qtmoko/etc/dict
(.dawg files wtf?)

But currently I am still unable to use prediction :/
