Description Caolan McNamara 2007-12-20 10:43:45 UTC
Description of problem:
Trying to unify our set of dictionaries, so that all desktop components agree on
spell suggestions. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/FeatureDictionary

So OOo uses hunspell, firefox3 also uses hunspell now so we can share those
dictionaries. gedit and libsexy (as used by xchat) uses enchant, which defaults
to using hunspell dictionaries if it can find them so they can share too. 

gnome-spell (as used by evolution) uses aspell, but attached is the same patch
as used by JDS etc to point gnome-spell at enchant which will then use hunspell
dictionaries if available or aspell if not.

Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2007-12-20 13:07:58 UTC
Looks good to me.

Fixed in gnome-spell-1.0.8-2.fc9.

(btw, I'm hoping to move GtkHTML over to enchant in the near future.)

Comment 3 Piotr Krawiec 2008-04-22 22:22:55 UTC
I consider this bug only partially solved. Remaining problem is that not all
dictionaries are recognized due to hardcoded list of languages available. E.g.
this leads to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=442539

There is a patch on http://bugzilla.abisource.com/show_bug.cgi?id=11001 to have
languages list got from enchant. Maybe it can be incorporated as a more proper
solution?

Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2008-04-22 23:12:02 UTC
GnomeSpell will likely be dropped from Fedora 10.  The latest development
releases of GtkHtml and Evolution no longer use it.

Comment 5 Piotr Krawiec 2008-04-23 08:31:29 UTC
So that's about Fedora 10 and latest GtkHTML and Evolution. What about Fedora 9?
Can someone possibly review the patch referenced above? 'FeatureDictionary' is
marked complete in 100% - and that's not actually true according to GnomeSpell
not using hunspell for all languages supported. So IMHO this bug should be
reopened (or better fixed properly).

Comment 6 Piotr Krawiec 2008-04-30 16:50:53 UTC
Any response? It's really annoying to have everything underlined in red, and I
guess "The latest development
releases of GtkHtml and Evolution no longer use it." is no explanation for
Fedora 9 potential users.

Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2008-04-30 17:25:25 UTC
The GnomeSpell patch looks very similar to what I did in GtkHtml.  Uses
iso-codes to match Enchant's language codes against standard translated language
names.

It's too late to get this in prior to Fedora 9, but I can push an update to the
Testing repo if you're willing it test it.

Reopening in the meantime.

Comment 8 Piotr Krawiec 2008-04-30 17:35:51 UTC
I'd be glad to.
