Hello, I'm tried this on my Mac, too. I downloaded the german aspell dictionary, unzipped it, and put in into the cocoAspell-Folder, changed the path in Lyx etc. A first test ended up in the same error you reported.
Then I looked into the dictionary folder and saw that there is no de-common-rws file. Then I realized what the problem is: I didn't compile the aspell dictionary! (the README-file tells me I have to do this ;-)) CocoAspell does this automatically if you open its preference pane (Systemeinstellungen): If there's a new dict in the path, compiling starts. After compiling be sure that you have checked at least "German" in the CocoAspell preference pane. So maybe you have forgotten this compilation step, too? Kind regards, Johannes After this spellchecking in German works for me.
