In this paper, linear combinations of composition operators acting on weighted Dirichlet spaces are studied. By using the first derivative of the kernel function, we obtain a lower estimate for the essential norms of these operators acting on the Dirichlet space D and S2 . For general weighted Dirichlet space, by using complex interpolation methods, we characterize the compactness of these operators induced by linear fractional self-maps of the disk.
