It seems that there won't be any update here, therefore here is a workaround to bring the german OKBoard files to your AArch64 device:

  1. Either download the Armv7 package and extract it using e.g. 7zip, or use the files of your old 32-bit device and navigate to the directory '~/.local/share/okboard/'
  2. Copy the following files to your new 64-bit device into the directory '~/.local/share/okboard/' (OKBoard must be installed already):
    • predict-de.db
    • de-user.txt (optionally from old installation)
  3. Activate OKBoard and you are ready to go

Hey @mautz,

I really would like to use this language pack on my Xperia 10 II (64-bit) device. Do you mind to provide an AArch64 build?

Unfortunately, the for SFOS 4.2. 64 bit can not install. in the OpenRepos is no longer offered. Is there an update here ?

I am using the English and German version a lot and noticed that the English version is setting the spaces automatically, but the German one doesn't. If you then remove the word due to the missing space, the last letter of the former word is removed. Using latest version of sailfishOS X.

Hi, I'm working on a similar dictionary for my language.
What hardware did you use to generate the file? I'm running the build script on a 8 core xeon with 20 GB of ram and it runs out of memory :O

I compiled it on an i7 with 8G ram, which was way too much. How big are your corpora and dictionary files?
Maybe you should ask for help on TMO. This is the thread for Okboard related questions:

Thank you mautz, I'm now part of the discussion :)

Somehow I was praising too fast. The Keyboard suddenly stopped working and everytime I try to activate german layout  it crashes. English layout with magic still works though. German swiping worked directly after installation as well, can't tell what caused the crash (only thing I did was trying to type/swipe text within WebPirate). Restarting keyboard didn't help (but did not reboot phone yet).

Try to "Reset all databases & settings" inside the OKBoard app.
