I could have sworn I had spellchecker working under OS X 10.6.2 (+ x64 extensions) last week, just by installing the aspell package in MacPorts (v0.60.6_2). But since then it wouldn't work other than to occasionally * almost* pop-up the checker window when frantically hitting F7 -- it would flicker for the briefest moment but never appear. Command line tests of aspell showed it was installed and working fine. Indeed, if I changed the LyX preference to ispell -- not installed -- spell checker would complain, so LyX *was* able to locate aspell.
Anyway. I just installed the latest cocoAspell<http://people.ict.usc.edu/%7Eleuski/cocoaspell/>(v2.1, with Snow Leopard updates), which I haven't tried before, and it now works fine in LyX 1.6.5. Mostly guessing, I selected a few of the various English dictionaries available from the new spelling Preference Pane cocoAspell installs. Perhaps that makes a difference somehow? I haven't tried non-English dictionaries though. ~:justin.wood <http://civilisationshift.wordpress.com/>:~ ≤ 350ppm CO2<http://350.org> On Wed, Mar 17, 2010 at 08:49, Marshall Feldman <ma...@uri.edu> wrote: > > I have the same problem on a Mac (Leopard), and I do have admin. > privileges.
