On Ubuntu 9.10 you find already installed dictionary, but to use the dictionary you need to go online. Without the internet connection you cannot use the dictionary. Then you need an offline dictionary so you can use have a dictionary even you are not online.

The dictionary that I will recommend to you is stardict. Here I will show you the steps to install it. First you need to install the stardict from the repository.

$ sudo apt-get install stardict

Then you need to install the language on your dictionary. Here, I install indonesian-english and english-indonesian. Download the dictionary and install it.

$ wget
$ wget
$ tar -xjvf stardict-quick_eng-ind-2.4.2.tar.bz2
$ tar -xjvf stardict-quick_ind-eng-2.4.2.tar.bz2
$ sudo mv stardict-quick_eng-ind-2.4.2 /usr/share/stardict/dic
$ sudo mv stardict-quick_ind-eng-2.4.2 /usr/share/stardict/dic

Well done, the dictionary is installed and ready to use. You can find stardict dictionary on Apllications - Accessories - StarDict.
