Dear Junchao,

hunspell and LyX are two independent programs. LyX has builtin hunspell support 
or not.

I understand this as: you can see hunspell as available spell checker in

LyX does not find the dictionaries in your home directory. 
You have to point it there in LyX path's preferences.
Try to enter /home/jczhang/usr/share/dict and see if it helps.
