How To Install Aard Dictionary 0.9.3 On Ubuntu, Debian And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Aard Dictionary is a free, easy to use offline dictionary. While it contains 7 offline dictionaries, including Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikiquote and WordNet, other dictionaries can be added, to be used offline. Also worth mentioning, it has support for multiple languages.

The latest version available is Aard Dictionary 0.9.3, which has been released a while ago.

In this article I will show you how to install Aard Dictionary 0.9.3 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, Deepin, Peppermint, LXLE, Linux Lite, Debian, Crunchbang, Kwheezy and other Ubuntu and derivative systems.

Because it is not available via any repository or PPA, we have to download the aarddict deb package and install it via command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies.

So, to install Aard Dictionary 0.9.3 on Debian, Ubuntu and derivative systems, do:

$ wget https://github.com/downloads/aarddict/desktop/aarddict_0.9.3-1_all.deb
$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ sudo gdebi aarddict_0.9.3-1_all.deb

Optional, to remove aarddict, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove aarddict
