Description Jan Pokorný 2017-06-23 10:18:29 EDT
Trigger for this request:
(look for gtkspell and you'll find that inkscape is affected)

Indeed, gtkspell is orphaned now:

So encouraged by inkscape build system sources, I tried simply:

diff --git a/inkscape.spec b/inkscape.spec
index 5d35c7d..b0d5aa7 100644
--- a/inkscape.spec
+++ b/inkscape.spec
@@ -26,7 +26,7 @@ BuildRequires:  gc-devel >= 6.4
 BuildRequires:  gettext
 BuildRequires:  gsl-devel
 BuildRequires:  gtkmm30-devel
-BuildRequires:  gtkspell-devel
+BuildRequires:  gtkspell3-devel
 BuildRequires:  ImageMagick-c++-devel
 BuildRequires:  intltool
 BuildRequires:  lcms2-devel

And it worked well as far as building and grabing automatic so-based

Then I tried to check the function of the spell checker from within
inkscape built like that:

1. select "Create and edit text objects (F8)"
2. enter some random text
3. go to main menu > Text > Check spelling
4. observe new embedded dialog just with one button active
   -- "Stop"
5. if you click on that button, you'll get a segfault

But after reinstalling inkscape with original Fedora version using
gtkspell, I got the same behavior, so I don't really think this would
be a regression -- it's rather a pre-existing bug that should not
block getting rid of dependency on now-orphaned package.
Comment 1 Jan Pokorný 2017-06-23 10:22:07 EDT
Note when I run inkscape from terminal, I can observe

> ** (inkscape:20386): WARNING **: Error: No word lists can be found for the language "en_US".

prior to the crash.

Also regarding the BuildRequires change accepted by the build system:

> -- Checking for module 'gtkspell3-3.0'
> --   Found gtkspell3-3.0, version 3.0.9
> [...]
> ------------------------------
> Building Makefile for Inkscape
> ------------------------------
> [...]
> Using GtkSpell 3

So it seems accepted just fine.

Committed, but the build failed due to rawhide breakage.  I'll try again in a day or so.
