Hello All,

I just came across a blog [1] that mentioned about the off-line 
dictionary setup in Ubuntu. I tried doing similar in Fedora but failed. 
So the point for which I'm here looking for help is that though I've 
been able to 'yum install wordnet dictd', and I'm able to query wordnet 
[2] in its graphical window using
but when i'm trying to start my local dict daemon so as to map wordnet 
under gnome-dictionary its fails simply saying that 'no dictionaries 
$ sudo service dictd restart
Shutting down dictd:                                       [FAILED]
Starting dictd: no dictionaries installed                  [FAILED]

I have googled a bit but have not been able to find a solution. Also 
came across [3] but that to didn't helped as the server is not coming 
up. Though the client side of dict is working for me [4].
Any help that makes this work would be great.
