Description Alejandro Gonzalez Hernandez - Imoq 2003-11-14 00:15:43 EST
Description of problem:

Originally I only had aspell and aspell-en RPM installed and Evolution
allowed me to check spelling for English (American, British, Canadian)
but then I installed aspell-es RPM and Evolution doesn't show me the
option to spell check Spanish language.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[root@home root]# rpm -qa | grep aspell
[root@home root]# rpm -q evolution
[root@home root]#

I upgraded Evolution from a previous version, I don't know if that
could be causing the issue or it is another problem.

I was able to reproduce this bug at home and at office.

If you look under Tools->Settings->Composer Preferences->Spelling, do
you have Spanish listed as an option?
Comment 2 Alejandro Gonzalez Hernandez - Imoq 2003-11-14 13:19:46 EST
Oddly enough, it is now.

It wasn't there after I installed aspell-es, not even closing and
re-opening evolution.

I guess that when I rebooted something made it work again (?). I'll
take a look at home's computer as well.
Comment 3 Alejandro Gonzalez Hernandez - Imoq 2003-11-15 00:20:42 EST
OK, now I am at home computer and I am seeing this behavior.

I have:

imoq@home [~] $ rpm -qa | grep aspell
imoq@home [~] $

But in Evolution -> Tools -> Settings -> Composer Preferences -> Spell
Checking  I only have the options "English (American), English
(British) and English (Canadian)" available. I don't have a Spanish
option to choose from.
Comment 4 Alejandro Gonzalez Hernandez - Imoq 2004-03-20 19:38:15 EST
I am still trying to make Evolution display the Spanish language under
preferences. It doesn't, even if I have aspell-es installed. I don't
want to lose my settings, that's why I don't just rm -fr ~/evolution.
Do you know where can I look to add the Spanish (México) support for
spell checking?
Comment 5 Alejandro Gonzalez Hernandez - Imoq 2004-05-21 14:46:09 EDT
I gave up, and when I upgraded to FC2 I just wiped out my ~/evolution
and started with a fresh one.

Oh, well, I guess I'll close this bug.
