Bug Description

The dictionary look up applet seems to be totally missing in 11.10! This was one of my most-used utilities. The package description for gnome-dictionary says that the applet is included it it, but I can find nothing relating to the applet in the listing of the package contents. What happened??? I certainly hope an executive decision wasn't made to deep-six this applet, which has been one of my favorites for many years.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.

If the applet has indeed gone away, perhaps it would be appropriate and possible for the Ubuntu maintainers to drop the statement from the gnome-dictionary package stating that one of the package components is the missing applet. This is a documentation bug and should perhaps be re-assigned accordingly. Documentation that's free from this sort of error is more than just a "wishlist" thing.

Right, that package comes from Debian, somebody should report the issue to them as well
