I’m a translator for the Linux Professional Institute, and we’re using the OmegaT translation memory. Some time ago I moved from OpenSUSE to Rocky Linux with KDE on the desktop, and I’m having a bit of a hard time getting OmegaT to behave.
First I gave the Flatpak version
org.omegat.OmegaT a spin. The app looks nice, but there’s a showstopping bug in the file selection window which makes it completely useless.
Next I went to download the “
Linux with 64bit JRE” tarball from the project’s website.
Installation boils down to unpacking the archive, launching the
linux-install.sh script, typing in your password, and then everything installs nicely under
/opt as it should. There’s no
omegat.desktop file, so if you haven’t created one manually, you can launch
In the default configuration, OmegaT looks like something you would have on a 1998 Red Hat installation, with no font antialiasing and stuff looking like Lego bricks for the very young.
Any idea how I can get OmegaT to behave and display normal fonts? This simply hurts my eyes, and since I will spend a significant amount of time using it, I might as well make it display stuff correctly.
