Abiword with german dictionary ?
« on: June 20, 2009, 02:56:25 pm »

Hi there,
im using Abiword 2.6.6 but spellchecking is greyed-out. German language is selected.
aspell, aspell-de,aspell-en are installed. Did i forget something ?
Cheers

Is enchant installed?  That's the interface between Abiword and aspell.

Thanks Caitlyn for answering.
Yes, actual enchant is installed.
German language for VL is set both via gdm and the locale variables.

Everything runs fine now. I don't know why. Perhaps because i updated a bunch of packages today...

I don't know what to suggest but I'm glad it's working for you know.  I have AbiWord working with spellchecking in three languages here without problems.  I'd still like to know what went wrong but I guess that's asking too much :)
