Is it possible to get an off-line Dictionary ?


Hi there,

I tried my level best to get an off-line Complete functioning dictionary, but failed..

I couldn't find one in my F9 repositories... Am using Gnome as GUI and my Box Arch is 64_bit. Could somebody tell me where can I get one?



Cheers!

You should make separate threads for separate problems.
