offline dictionary -- like wordweb
just wondering if anyone can recommend me an offline dictionary (like wordweb) for Linux, i don't want the dictionary to search from the net (although i quite like how wordweb has an online part which functions if initiated)
i have installed wordweb under wine but i would prefer a native linux offline dictionary (untill wordweb releases a Linux version)
update: i found 1
stardict - very elegant, love it
12MBish in size
two files: stardict and stardict-english library
Here's another alternative with a large number of dictionaries: zbedic
did you try again? I just tried and got in with no access; its on sourceforge.net, so one would expect good availability.
At any rate, see below summary of zbedic:
