Description Nicolas Mailhot 2007-06-27 08:14:52 UTC
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

Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2007-07-16 16:23:30 UTC
Nicolas, can you point me to the patches for gtkspell2 ?

Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2007-07-16 17:30:41 UTC
They're on the enchant page gtkspell -> enchant -> hunspell

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-10-03 16:58:07 UTC
I guess at this point, this is no longer an F8 target...

Comment 4 Dwayne Bailey 2007-12-11 10:57:50 UTC
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)


Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-12-20 13:28:00 UTC
Fixed in gtkspell-2.0.11-5.fc9.
