Where are the Esperanto dictionary on Linux?


Hi

I am search for a dictionary where I can look up words. I don't mean spelling dictionaries, but a program that I can use to look up words.
I just can't find it, there used to be a program called vortaro, but it is gone form the the debian (ubuntu) repositories.
Google points to a softpedia site, which ends into a file not found, some other links point to some evil ugly wine port and I just plainly refuse to use such an ugly beast.

I had a shaking spell, after I tried to analyze the freelang.net dictionary, which comes in a fileformat of .wb, which to my shock is Access 2007. I probably won't be able to free this information from this proprietary nightmare of formats without paying for Access 2007 (which I certainly won't do).
Somebody seems to think that Access 2007 database format is an internation standard *brrrrr..shake and shiver".

Hmm, yes: In a world where you have internet access from everywhere, flat rate and inexpensive, that would be the easiest way. Unfortunately, it is hard to have internet access under these conditions currently, that is why I need a offline program.
