is there a way I can install /usr/share/dict/words file for Fedora 11 , (it should be a list of dictionary English words?)?

  • ditto for ubuntu? apt-get install words didn't do anything... – Tom Sep 26 '09 at 6:43
yum install words

For Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install wbritish


sudo apt-get install wamerican

  • This answer is not about Fedora. – JesseTG Oct 5 '16 at 1:53
  • It also works for non-English languages, for example sudo apt-get install wfrench or sudo apt-get install wswedish. – Donald Duck Jun 29 at 16:41

In general, if you want to install /someplace/some/random/file, you can just do yum install /someplace/some/random/file
