WordWeb on Ubuntu via wine18 May 2017
Sometimes you need to look up a certain word but you do not have the luxury of looking it up online. An offline dictionary will suffice. I was accustomed to using WordWeb on windows but after making the switch to ubuntu I wasn’t able to find a replacement. Turns out I can continue using it by installing wine on my machine (wordweb8, ubuntu 17.04, wine 1.87).
sudo apt-get install -y wine1.6-amd64
install word web
After downloading it from here it you will need to install it through the terminal. Navigate to where you downloaded it and use the wine command to start the process
If all went well you will have the wordweb indicator appearing on the panel.
