    A search of the Software page brought up: jDictionary (OpenSUSE 10.3).

    The link contains the 1-Click Installer for the program.

    I'm not sure how great the dictionary is, as I have no real experience to speak of with it, but that one seems popular.

    best dictionaries i found in suse(linux) are :
    stardic StarDict - The best dictionary program in linux and windows

    and sdicviewer : this one just needs Python and its own dictionaries and in lighter that stardic

    so you can choose between these two

    what is an "english-english dictionary"? (is it one when you look up an
    english word you get its definition, what it means, in english...or
    what?? maybe other words with similar meanings, like: again, and,
    besides, ditto, further, furthermore, in addition, including, likewise,
    more, moreover, plus, similarly, too, with, yet...)

    > i want a dictionary like as babylon that i work easily


    what is babylon? what does it do?
    (after a google i continue) are you speaking of TRANSLATION software?

    translation of english to english??? or english to/from something else??

    I assume this is in KDE4 but in KDE3.5, Configure Konqueror > Webshortcuts and tick Merriam Webster Dictionary.

    The shortcut in Konqueror is dict: so just enter
    dict: <your word> in the Konqueror location bar.

    The original request was for an English-English dictionary. I am not
    entirely clear what this means, but the Merriam Webster appears to be
    what may be called an American-English dictionary (English as used in
    USA), whereas the Oxford English Dictionary is an English-English
    dictionary (ie the language as used in England). IIRC, the Oxford also
    has "colonies" versions which cover English as used in, for example,
    Canada and New Zealand.

    Before someone sensitive howls :-) the use of "colonies" was to indicate
    the mechanism through which English was spread and not a derogatory term.

    Wordreference (also in the KDE list) uses the Oxford dictionaries.
