Last modified: 2015-06-29 08:55:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Spell check is not working for me (it was turned off by default), and I turned it on it didn't work too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Can you be more specific? What are you trying to spell check? What do you expect to be spell checked? Where are you turning it on? Anaconda does not provide any spell check functionality.

The spell check in the installed system (after installation), I used Firefox and kwrite and spell check doesn't work in them.
I put Anaconda as the component because it is responsible for what gets installed, and I think spell-check packages are not installed (or the wrong ones are installed), please change it to the appropriate component if it is not the installer.
What language did you install in?
Also, please attach the output of 'rpm -qa | grep spell'.
US English, but my timezone is Baghdad, Iraq if this makes any difference
[mustafa@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep spell
That should be enough. Moving to firefox as it's one of the apps mentioned.
Please attach output of 'ls /usr/lib64/xulrunner/dictionaries/'
See context menu by clicking right mouse button in text area and check if 'Check spelling' is active and there's a list of available languages in 'Languages' submenu.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining

bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
