Description of problem:
gedit spellchecker plugin in installed by default with gedit but
without a spell check dictionary
so whatever you type gets marked as mispelled.
if gedit is installed with spellchecker plugin then there should pull
in the dictionar(y/ies) for the system default language(s) as well.
the tools-set_language doesnt seem to have any listed
languages to select by default.
since default seems to be no language selected
seems like everything i typed aside from ';' was
considered mispelled lol.
installed a hunspell-$2digit_country_code dictionary rpm
so then languages are listed in the gedit-tools-set_language list
the next time you open gedit.
then could select a language to check spelling against
so not everything you type shows as being mispelled
assuming you can type in that language. ;')
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
in fc16-gnome-rc2 :
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install gedit
2. select no language from empty list of languages in gedit-tools-set_language
3. correctly type something in the tongue of the system default language
4. watch the red wiggly underline decry your typing as mispelt.
all system-default-languagey worden you correctly type be marked as mispelled
worden you correctly type in the system-default-language
not be marked as beink mispelt.
