    Question KDE Dictionary Plasmoid Quit Defining Words

    My dictionary plasmoid quit defining words, and I think it was after I upgraded to openSUSE 12.3. I had to install qstardict a few days ago, and I also have the updated KDE apps repo for the latest rekonq. Another person did not have the same problem in #suse on irc.freenode.net. They had openSUSE 12.2 and the kr410 repo. I will just use a dictionary website if there is no fix. Thanks

    No thanks, the difference is that another application is something that I have to open, and it becomes a little obtrusive, e.g., having to keep it out of the way in another activity. A plasmoid or runner is always available with a quick shortcut, yet it’s always hidden or barely noticeable.

    That’s nice how it works offline. The dictionary plasmoid/runner requires the Internet, and I couldn’t get an answer as to where it gets its definitions.

    yes it works offline . It uses a back end called "wordnet" and has a basic and an advanced mode for those who need "more".
    You can "select" words and press ctrl+alt+w to summon meaning,antonyms,synonyms,derivatives,etc.
