    Smile Desktop dictionary Tool for Ubuntu

    Can anyone suggest me a good [free]dictionary tool for offline use in Ubuntu.
    I tried using GoldenDict, but all it does is search wikipedia to fetch any information.
    Gnome Dictionary/Wordnet might be an option.

    Is there anything elegant like "Oxford Dictionary"?

    Stardict will still work but is no longer being developed, I believe, but the dictionaries may still be available.

    Yes there are several which work still and you can get from
