Spell checking support is broken.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
Description of problem: libsexy's spell checking support isn't working.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use an app that uses libsexy spell-checking entry widget (xchat-gnome, for
2. Misspell a word in the widget
Actual results: Nothing happens
Expected results: It underlines the misspelled word.
Additional info: This was broken back in 0.1.5. The enchant dependency was
made into a run-time dependency, instead of a compile dependency. So, this
means that the BR on enchant-devel can be dropped, and just a add a requires on
In addition, sexy-spell-entry.c is going to need to be patched to look for the
correct share-object file in the initialize_enchant() call.
Actually, looking at it a little closer, you need to add a Requires on
enchant-devel and it should fix it without having to patch libsexy.
Upstream put out a new version which should solve this. Please give the new
package a try.
Yeah, I talked w/Christian, and this fixes the problem. Closing bug.
