Thread: Dictionary?

  1. #1

    Default Dictionary?

    On SuSE 10.0 I used to have an app simply called, "Dictionary" and it was placed in the Office > Database section of the kicker menu.
    I can't seem to find that app anywhere for OpenSUSE 11.2. Did they stop supporting/making it?

    wasn't it StarDic or KDictionary...or something like that?
    were you using KDE or Gnome, and was it built-in or did you add it?

    well, there are LOTs of dictionaries available, pick one and install
    it: http://tinyurl.com/33tcuql

    personally, i use Answers.com which is available in the firefox
    standard search bar....just spin it from google to answers..

    There is a Dictionary among the KDE4 widgets; perhaps this is where it has gone.
