I am looking for the BEST single-click dictionary

I have used Babylon on Windows. I found Babytrans on Gnome, but it's inconvenience ( i must select texts first, and in some applications i can't select them ), and ( original )Stardict it's very bad with its hot-key "ENTER" (some programs or buttons are activated)

Could you show me some good applications ? Thanks!

Hi, not much of a clicker here: "aspell -c <file>"

aspell, it's a spell checker, isn't it?
Thanks, but jdictd or another better than it as a dictionary.

ding is a very nice dictionary lookup program. It comes with a very large English-German dictionary, but you can replace that. It has a mode where it automatically translates your selection when you activate the window.

Hope I could help,

Hi, mschutte!

I have just downloaded "Ding". But it has only E-G, and German-Spanish dictionaries. Although, you helped me a lot. Thanks!

Hi metalinx.
Sorry for the late post.
I'm trying to install babytrans on gnome (Ubuntu 5.10, kernel 2.6.14).
Due you have a succesfully installation,
please could you point to me out how to do that.
I am very confused, because really the translator is installed on my linux box, but i can't run it.
Well explained: i have installed babytrans with apt-get install,
download the dic files on /usr/local/lib/babytrans (and also in /usr/lib/babytrans, because i don't have well understanded where the bin file baby trans for dictionaries search to.. ), but when i run the program, i don't see anything. The program exits immediately, without any good or bad message .

You can help me?

thank you very much
