 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,

 Yes. I got the English dictionary to run. I figured out, that the cursor 
 must be in the beginning of the file, so that the spellchecker can find 
 errors. If you are at the end of the file with the cursor, it doesn't find 
 anything.

Getting cocoaSpell to work with lyx on a Mac | Or Alternative

2010-07-12 Thread iustifico
Hello altogether,

I have a copy of lyx (1.6.6.1) running on a mac (Snow Leopard). Everything 
works fine.

Now I want some sort of spellchecking. I went for the recommendation of this 
page
http://wiki.lyx.org/Mac/MacSpelling
and installed cocoAspell. The installation was self-explanatory. Now I wanted 
to tell lyx, to use this tool, so I put this line
/Library/Application Support/cocoAspell/aspell6-en-6.0-0/english.alias
into the Alternative Language field. When I hit the Spellchecker-Button, the 
one with ABC on it, nothing happens. I even tried some misspelling, to see if 
lyx finds them. Is there more things to tell Lyx, so it can use cocaspell?

By the way, there is a great spell-checker on board with OS-X. Isn't it 
possible to just use this one?

Thank you for any kind of help or suggestions for alternative solutions!

Kind regards,

Also check LyX  Preferences  Language Settings  Spelling; does
