Make gtkspell support Enchant/Hunspell
Last modified: 2007-12-20 08:28:00 EST
Please make Fedora gtkspell support Enchant/Hunspell
Even though industrial Enchant/Hunspell gtkspell support is only scheduled for
gtkspell3, patches exist for previous versions. Waiting for gtkspell3 has a
major drawback: gtkspell apps use aspell dicts and OO.o/Firefox use hunspell dicts
aspell and hunspell dicts are not synchronized to spellchecking behaviour is
different from app to app when both exist
sometimes only hunspell dicts exist
end result is confused users
Moreover the people who could fix the dicts just look at the number of variants
(ispell/aspell/hunspell) they're supposed to maintain and just give up (or
decide to do only hunspell)
The problems of using an early gtkspell3 or a gtkspell2 patched for enchant are
dwarfed by the benefits of killing the aspell/hunspell dict duplication
Nicolas, can you point me to the patches for gtkspell2 ?
They're on the enchant page gtkspell -> enchant -> hunspell
I guess at this point, this is no longer an F8 target...
Here is the link to the patch. Just for clarity this seems to make gtkspell use
Enchant which in turn can use hunspell (amongst other checkers)
Fixed in gtkspell-2.0.11-5.fc9.
