It seems that Ubuntu-desktop comes with a dictionary. What is that and how to get that In Lubuntu?

    @green7 that is an online dictionary, so you may have not noticed it – Anwar Sep 3 '12 at 13:03

I believe you are referring to gnome-dictionary, which you can install with:

sudo apt-get install gnome-dictionary



Golden Dictionary is heavier (larger) but seems to work well behind a firewall, which seemed to block gnome-dictionary. Installation

sudo apt-get install goldendict

And in Edit-Dictionaries you may add a variety of sources to consult
