Searching for an English dictionary for Mandriva 2010 using KDE 4
I need a English dictionary to search meaning of words. I have done google searches as well as searched this forum but was unsuccessful in finding one. I am trying to find and install an offline dictionary i.e. it should work even if there is no internet connection. It should not be online dictionary.
thanks. Artha is interesting but I already use the same database with the dict-wn (wordnet) database for dict. And dict-gcide (I.e Webster's Dictionary edition 1913). These are free and perfect when working with literature in English.
I also use the moby-thesaurus dict package (thesaurus, also good).
This works very well in Debian. May work in mandriva, have not tested it.
I use the Lexica graphical frontend with dict. (google lexica unix)
