Installation of dictionaries should be automatic, with additional dictionaries
being available via yum.
Unless I'm horribly mistaken, the current recommended installation method seems
to be running a Star Office document (DicOOo.sxw) containing a macro and let it
download the dictionaries. This needs to be documented on the wiki (I didn't do
this because I'm not confident installation of a dictionary requires such a
Indeed, and that's so horrible that we don't put DictOOo in our menus at all, we
already include most dictionaries directly into the appropiate langpacks in FC-6
e.g Afrikaans into the langpack-af rpm, instead of forcing the user to use
DictOOo to download them for their language. I think we already have the
available dictionaries for all the supported langpacks included for FC-6
And for FC-7 we'll split them out into standalone hunspell-af etc and require
them directly from the appropriate langpacks, and a user can simple yum install
hunspell-language to get additional dictionaries for that language.
Ah okay. The thing to look for is langpack then, not spell.
yum list "openoffice*spell*"
yum list "*spell*"
showed nothing. The wiki showed nothing about this either :/
FC7 sounds good, maybe there will be a unified dictionary one day :)
