patch to do this

Description of problem:
As described at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/FeatureDictionary we've been trying to unify spell checking across the desktop for some time. In that vein attached is a patch to support using enchant as a spellchecking backend for lyx which enables it to share the same spelling dictionaries as OpenOffice?.org, Firefox, etc.

This has also been submitted upstream as http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/6226

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2009-09-17 17:15:42 UTC
Sure, I'm fairly certain this is going to land upstream in some incarnation of enchant/hunspell support in lyx-1.7, but I'll double check on that.

In the meantime, thanks!

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2009-09-17 18:15:11 UTC
give it a light test drive, works great.

SHIP IT.  (lyx-1.6.4-2 in rawhide)

Comment 3 Nicola Soranzo 2010-01-22 11:52:28 UTC
For the record, lyx 2.0 will also support hunspell:


Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2010-03-18 14:47:14 UTC
lyx-1.6.5-5.el5 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 5.

Comment 5 José Matos 2010-03-18 14:57:12 UTC
FWIW other than lyx-2.0.0 that has this patch incorporated version 1.6.6 (not yet released) has this patch in as well.

Comment 6 Fedora Update System 2010-04-15 15:46:13 UTC
lyx-1.6.5-5.el5 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 5 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
