hey all,

i have dictd and some dictionaries installed for offline use. but since 9.04 it isn't working anymore.

dictd is getting startet but a portscan does not report dictd listening anywhere.

it does not work even if i start dictd after killing remaining dictd processes like so:

sudo dictd -p2628 --listen-to localhost

is there a firewall activated?
but

sudo ufw status
reports
Status: inactive

any hints?

resolved:

you have to use 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost for hostname in gnome-dict dictionary-source preferences.
