Description of problem:
I've just installed Fedora 8 and when I try to run the spell check from gedit, it highlights every word in the document (even if the words are spelled correctly). The reason it does this is because there was no aspell English dictionary included with my installation. I think this is a bug and the installer should at least include a dictionary for the default language chosen by the installer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 8 i686
2. Run gedit
3. Select Tools>Autocheck Spelling (Every work in document will be highlighted as misspelled)
4. Click Tools>Set Language... (Should be a blank list)
The gedit should check the spelling appropriate to the language selected.
Please refer to the original thread I posted on the FedoraForum website regarding this bug:
I installed Fedora 8 using the i686 live CD available from here:
In Fedora 9, the hunspell-en dictionary is getting pulled in.
