    Re: HOWTO: use gnome-dictionary offline (& faster)

    just an update: I have installed the package "fantasdic", which is an overall amazing replacement for gnome-dictionary. Everything works to my liking; highly recommended.

    Fantasdic is wonderful.

    if you add gnome-dictionary to panel, and then search a word, it will show results from all the dictionaries from dictd server.

    Perfect solution..
    And 'fantasdic' is a better client that gnome-dict in terms of functionality and configurability..but I found it's a tad slower than gnome-dict(while searching from local database)?

    I haven't gotten this working on Jaunty yet, has anyone else had success?
    A towel is about the most massively useful thing for fixing computers. Use it to muffle your screams when you mess up, or to dry your tears if it's broken beyond repair. When all else fails, use it to cover up the useless machine, then walk away.

    Did you do anything different from the OP's post? Some of his instructions seem like they need to be modified for Jaunty

    Hi

    yes I deviated a bit - installed dictd, dict-gcide and dict-moby-theasaurus. I then used fantasdic as the client.
