Description of problem:
Now that there are a lot of nice dictionaries distributed in
openoffice.org-i18n, these should be used in mozilla as well. It could
be done as simple as just creating links from
/usr/lib/ooo-1.1/share/dict/ooo/ and then introducing a dependency fro
mozilla. Any opinions?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try spell checking a mail and notice that the only dictionary
available is en en-US one
IE doesn't depend on Word. Why should Mozilla depend on Open Office?
So you're suggesting we should duplicate the dictionaries in mozilla,
or would it be cleaner to break them out of OpenOffice alltogether and
make both packages depend on some myspell-dictionaries package?
I didn't suggest anything other than Mozilla shouldn't depend on OO.
If you want my opinion though, I would say your last idea of putting
the dictionaries into a package which both Mozilla and OpenOffice.org
could use is the way to go.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Sharing dictionaries between OpenOffice.org and mozilla/thunderbird is still a
feature that would be nice to have.
