Xfce 4 Dict Plugin can help you query a dictionary server(see RFC 2229) to search for the translation or explanation of a word. You can also choose a dictionary offered by the server to improve your search results.
· Compile and install the dict package
· Right-click the Xfce panel > Add New Item > Dict
There are two special dictionaries:
* - use this dictionary to search in all available dictionaries on the server
! - use this dictionary to search in all available dictionaries on the server but stop searching after the first match.
You can also easily select a word in an email or on a webpage and drag it onto the dict icon in your panel, then the plugin begins to search and shows you the results.
