somebody can give them a try. i.e. for me to install on my machine with
the American + British spelling I need to download and install with:
dpkg -i me-jasspa_0.0.20090909_i386.deb
dpkg -i me-jasspa-data_0.0.20090909_all.deb
dpkg -i me-jasspa-engb_0.0.20090909_all.deb
dpkg -i me-jasspa-enus_0.0.20090909_all.deb
