Description Sandro Janke 2011-08-06 19:30:58 UTC
Description of problem:

Zim plugins (core and none core) do not work out of the box.

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

Zim-0.52-1.fc14.noarch

Additional info:

IMO at least Zim core plugins should work right out of the box. Now, when installed on a bare system, most of the plugins require extra software to be installed by the user.

I would suggest to put all core plugins in a separate sub package (Zim-plugins-core) and none core plugins in additional sub packages (Zim-plugin-${none-core-plugin}. The base package should require Zim-plugins-core, but none of the other plugin sub packages.

BTW, I tried to get the spell check core plugin working, but simply installing gtkspell and gnome-python2-gtkspell didn't do the trick. What else is required?

Just install gnome-python2-gtkspell and it works.
There is a configuration of this plugin to set default language, and additional hunspell-* package is needed for the selected language.

Apparently, the install of gnome-python2-gtkspell wasn't recognized intermediately as with the dependencies for the other plugins. I assume I had to log out and log in again...

I already had hunspell packages installed. Plugin works fine now.

Oh, yes, restarting Zim is required to make it aware of installed dependencies.

Marked won't fix by now.
If you have a detailed proposal, re-open is welcome.
