Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 449072
Spelling does not work
Last modified: 2008-09-08 12:28:48 EDT
Description of problem:
After the last night upgrade the software which was working with spelling
stopped doing so. Example software:
In Gedit there is a window where one can set the spelling language - setting it
to Bulgarian renders all words to be considered as misspelled (even though I am
sure it is not as this is my native language)
In log jam in preferences one can also set the spelling language - again this
was set and working before the upgrade of enchant and enchant-aspell.

May 30 00:30:58 Updated: 1:enchant-aspell-1.4.2-1.fc9.i386
The spell chck is not working for other apps even before that like Pidgin.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use gedit and set the spell check to automatic and language to Bulgarian
2. Type "тест" - this is a correctly spelled word and still it is underlined as
Word considered as misspelled
Recognize the dictionaries installed on the system
I am not really sure which packet is doing this because oll the new stuff in
Also I am using an account created in fedora 8 (kept /home when upgrading) so it
might be related.
I have made some more testing on this and it seem that the problem is not in
spelling as a whole but in the Bulgarian spelling, as Russian for example works
and again it uses ciyrlic characters.
I think this should be changed as hunspell-bg bug.
