Dictionary applet in Cinnamon.

Post by anandrkris » Tue Nov 26, 2013 4:57 am

I remember using a Dictionary applet in MATE. Can we have similar one in Cinnamon please? :D Please +1 to vote this...

P.S. I am a pure desktop user with zero programming experience, so can not do it on my own before any of you advice...
Cheers,

There some good ones in the software center, like goldendict you can check out, not an applet but a really good one.

Yup I agree it would, I remember the one you were talking about in gnome 2 I used it a lot, maybe someone can fork it over, I will look into it myself if I can find time but that won't be for awhile, it would be handy to have back though.
