Description Arkady L. Shane 2008-04-15 09:43:15 EDT
Description of problem:
I have installed hunspell-ru (and aspell-ru), but there is not any russian
dictionary in Spell Cheking tab in Composer preferenses. This problem is present
for many languages, for bg, lt, he, and I think etc.

Gajim, for example, has the same problem. Both of them use gtkspell for spell
Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2008-04-15 10:31:02 EDT
Evolution uses GnomeSpell which, if I recall correctly, uses a fixed list of
language codes that it tries to match against installed dictionaries.  I notice,
however, the language codes are tailored for aspell and we've since standardized
on hunspell.  It may be that hunspell is reporting slightly different language
codes that GnomeSpell doesn't recognize.
Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2008-04-15 10:33:39 EDT
Note: In Post-F9 Rawhide, Evolution no longer uses GnomeSpell at all.  Instead,
it talks to Enchant directly.  So I imagine this bug only applies to Fedora 9.
Comment 3 Piotr Krawiec 2008-04-22 18:03:41 EDT

According to above bugs status, both gnome-spell and gtkspell are supposed to
use enchant->hunspell, but I still can't see polish (hunspell-pl) on evolution's
spell checking list.

me too -- Czech language is not available as well.
Comment 5 Arkady L. Shane 2008-05-18 15:16:10 EDT
I saw, that gnome-spell-1.0.8-5.fc9 from updates-testing fixes this problem!
Comment 6 Piotr Krawiec 2008-05-19 08:43:38 EDT
Yes, it does, have a look at bug #426347.
