Install the below packages:

dictd: It is a dictionary database server of sorts.
dict-gcide: It is a comprehensive free English dictionary.
dict-wn: It is also an dictionary with up-to-date definitions.

Install the other dictionary packages if you want to use. Search in the Synaptic under dict. If you want the Thesaurus, then install the “dict-moby-thesaurus” package.

Then, click on Applications and then click on Dictionary. It will open the Gnome-Dictionary. Then, click on Edit and select Preferences. Then, change the server to localhost and change the Database to “Search all databases”. Then, change the order in which the definitions should appear.

Can you help with this problem?
