How to have a commandline dictionary using StarDict

📅 2013-Jun-02 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ dictionary ⬩ 📚 Archive

If you spend a lot of time at the shell, you might prefer to look up the meaning of words from the commandline, rather than from a GUI program or in the browser. One solution is to use the console version of the StarDict program.

$ sudo apt-get install sdcv
$ sdcv --list-dicts
$ sdcv mollify

Tried with: Console Version of StarDict 0.4.2 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
