Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1465835
Add Requires: aspell-en
Last modified: 2017-08-08 12:07:58 EDT
Hello, finally got to test the reported subissue in more detail:
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1464487 +++
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
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.

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.

So, I've discovered, a long-standing upstream bug:
Indeed, installing aspell-en will fix the issue.
I was worried that the language for the dictionary is influenced with
LANG environment variable, but discovered it's not true.
Moreover, when for instance one installs just aspell-cs (or any other
aspell-LANG where LANG != en) and select that language in the Inkscape
properties as a primary language, the same crash happens regardless.
Hence it seems safe to assume that just having aspell-en installed
along with Inkscape should solve the problem (worst case the majority
will still be covered).
Thanks for considering!
