Description Caolan McNamara 2009-06-18 12:48:36 EDT
Description of problem:

Fedora's xfig has its spellchecking command customized to "aspell %f", but "aspell %f" doesn't output the misspellings in the format that xfig needs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Text tool, click in canvas area
2. Type a misspelling, e.g. applp
3. click somewhere else in canvas area
4. edit->spell check
Actual results:
"No misspellings found"

Expected results:
find the misspelling

Additional info:

The fix is trivial, the best thing to do given https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Dictionary is to change
from "aspell %f" to "enchant -l %f" and change the 
"Requires: aspell"
to a
"Requires: enchant"

oh, and xfig-3.2.4-redhat.patch isn't applied in that .spec either, probably can delete it, xfig-3.2.5a-default-apps.patch seems to have replaced it

fixed it up myself on a "It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission." basis as xfig-3.2.5-21.a.fc12

Great, thanks! Actually feel free to fix anything with any of my packages when you encounter it.
