There are several methods to interface with dictd. The command-line tool is
called dict. There is also a GTK frontend called gdict and a KDE one called
By default Kdict uses a remote server but you can configure it to use your
local one rather easily. There's also a GNUStep version called gsdict.
Both KDE and GNOME front-ends are in the Debian archive (don't know about
woody, however). Kdict is in kdeutils and gdict is in gnome-utils.
The command-line tool works simply by typing dict followed by whatever word
you want to look up.
Hope this helps!
