evolution spell check not working for manully installed dictionary
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
I have evolution installed, ans aspell, and gnome spell.
I have installed the Hungarian dictionary manually, by creating a rpm, based on
I will attach te src.rpm, as it is very small ( ~300k)
Now, the odd thing about this is, that aspell works fine for abiword, it checks
in hungarian without a problem. aspell also works from command line.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa | grep aspell* && rpm -qa evolution*
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install aspell-hu
2. start evolution
3. go to settings-> mail editor -> spell checking
(hope i wrote the right names, it is hungarian at me)
hungarian language is not listed there
hungarian dictionary should be selectable
My friend uses a different disrto, and is working for him. I must note, that he
has aspell-hu package by default. If it can be solved, I'd appreciate if the
dictionay would be marged into fedor-base or extras. I'd maintain it, if it
would be necessary.

source RPM of the hungarian dictionary package
Apologies for taking so long to respond.
Is the problem still present in Fedora Core 6?
no, the problem seems to be solved. I only rebuilt from the same src.rpm , and
now the spell checking works (or at least functions, because it is quite dumb,
or at least about hungarian language)
Thanks for responding. Closing per comment #3. Feel free to re-open this if
you encounter the same problem in Fedora Core 6 or later.
