The dictionary app requires a network connection, since it performs its lookups by requesting definitions from a dictionary server. If you want to use it while offline, there's a HOWTO here:


In short, if you download one or more dictionaries, and run a dictionary server on your own computer, you can use the dictionary app even when you're not connected to the internet.

Can you help with this problem?
