I haven't found a more detailed description for spellchecking in
the help files of LyX.

In the User Guide 6.14 Spell Checking
It says:
With Linux one needs to install the packages for the desired
language. The number of these packages vary depending on the
Linux distribution, but in most cases these are aspell-xx,
hunspell-xx, myspell-xx, etc., where xx is the language code.

In my LyX Version
(Thursday, June 25, 2020)
Library directory: /usr/share/lyx/
User directory: ~/.lyx/
Qt Version (run-time): 5.14.2
Qt Version (compile-time): 5.14.2
(and I am using Debian Bullseye)

there is only enchant as the spellchecker engine listed.
It is in ./.config/enchant
but there is no hunspell, e.g.
It is mentioned to get it from

Thanks for pointers

I found this
and it states that enchant calls other spellcheckers.

So my remaining question is
how do I get a personal spellchecker


You can tell LyX to record the words that will be recognized as
correct by "Add to personal dictionary" . These are saved as text
files in the personal folder with a name e.g. pwl_english.dict.
Thanks, Baris.
I see, by clicking ADD I get the personal spellchecker and can save
to it. But how do I find this one?
Mind you, I am under Linux (Debian)

If you want to use a new dictionary with .dic and .aff files,
rather than the default dictionary files, you should place those
files to \resources\dicts\ folder of LyX.

        ~/.config/enchant might be what you want.
