Re: Spellcheck>SOLVED

2020-11-15 Thread Wolfgang Engelmann


Have you installed either ispell, hunspell or aspell yet? Enchant can 
use any of them, I think. (I'm on Linux Mint, and I use enchant + 
aspell, for what it's worth.) You should be able to install whichever 
you choose, plus appropriate dictionaries, using the Debian package 
manager (apt? synaptic?). I don't think you need to install from source.

Thanks all who helped me with the spellchecking.
I do have enchant (Debian bullseye) and in

enchant/which is in ~/.config/enchant$

de_DE.dic  de_DE.exc  de.dic  de.exc  en_GB.dic  en_GB.exc  en_US.dic 
en_US.exc


I found the added personal dictionary in en_GB.dic

So, all is well

That is correct,

On my Debian Bullseye system I find:

en.dict
en_AU.dict
en_AU.exe
en_GB.dict
en_GB.exe

And others.

Not all have my added words in them, some of these files are empty.

I think the GB Great Britain and US, USA dicts are when I used a
different language and entered my own words and spellings.

> > de_DE.dic  de_DE.exc  de.dic  de.exc  en_GB.dic  en_GB.exc
> > en_US.dic en_US.exc

Maybe if you open these files you may find the words and the "in use"
dictionary you seek?

Hope that helps,

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.

Does "But how do I find this one?"  mean, you want to find the the 
".dict" text file that includes the added words and its location?


Under windows,  the file is located in the user directory, which is 
usually located at:


C:\Users\-username\AppData\Roaming\LyX2.3\

Under Linux, I believe it is also in the folder where all the user and 
LyX settings are kept. But  Maybe others can help?


Maybe you can do a quick "where" under Linux to find the file?

Hope I got your question correctly.

Hello,

My name is Helena and I have just started using Lyx. When I install it the 
spell check dictionary for swedish and english is missing. How can I get around 
that problem?

Thank you

Hej Helena!

Nice with another Swede on the list!

I think it will be easier to help you if you tell us what OS and version  
of LyX you have installed. There are some differences how dictionaries are  
managed.

I'm using lyx-2.0.0-0.11.beta3.fc14.x86_64

I suspect that we need to pass some option to configure when compiling lyx. 

That task is in my todo list for F-14 and F-15 (rawhide). Unfortunately I am

 I believe the intention is to manage the personal dictionary internally,

 at all consistent in how they handle adding and removing words, and some
 of them don't even support removal. There's also the issue with
 persistence, which you seem to have experienced. So doing it all inside
 LyX, as far as the personal dictionary goes, makes sense.
 
 That's a good summary of my work, thanks. :-)
 
 The current state for LyX 2.0 beta2 is a working internal personal
 dictionary at a fixed location inside your LyX users directory.  Now
 adding and removing of words works for me with aspell and hunspell with
 the internal personal dictionary on Linux and Mac OS X (Windows I couldn't
 test).
 
 Next I want to make the location of the personal dictionary more flexible.
 
 For LyX 1.6.9 I'll have a look at #6688 - I didn't see it earlier.
 As I understand it the path to personal dictionary is used in 1.6.x for
 ispell (and external aspell?) only. And of course one should be able to
 clear the input field and save that.

This should be fixed now with the next stable release.

BTW, the removal of the path to personal dictionary file was not my doing.
The feature was implemented for ispell and external aspell only and together
with the support for external aspell it was removed.

 Hi Stephan,
 
 Thanks!
 
 Am I reading you correctly that the LyX internal dictionary is just a file? 
 If 
 so, is it a file I can add to and subtract from with a text editor or a perl 
 script?

Yes, but the file format is not that mature. 
I didn't expect such big audience for it.

Currently it's as simple as one header line and one line per word with utf-8 
charset.

After your question I'll make it more formal and will document it in place.

 You mention you want to make the personal dictionary location more flexible. 
 Sounds good to me. Let me ask you something -- besides being able to set it 
 in 
 Tools-Configure, would it be possible for you to add it on a per-document 
 basis?
 It might be as simple as adding a special comment to the document:
 
 # LYX_PERSONAL_DICTIONARY=/home/slitt/books/thrive/thrive.pws
 
 and then being able to edit it from a Document-Settings, and recognize it 
 when running spellcheck. The document's personal dictionary, if it exists, 
 would override the Tools-Configure based personal dictionary.

 The benefit of this is every document has words that belong to it, but these 
 words would be wrong in another document. Names of characters in a fiction 
 book come to mind instantly, but there could also be special acronyms for a 
 special technology, etc.
 
 Does that sound doable?

I'm not sure about the concrete incarnation of that feature.
Doable is not the question - how to do it right is.
That doesn't mean I don't like it...
 
See the post from Julien:

 You might even be able to store the private list of words itself in the LyX

This would solve the problems when you exchange the document with co-workers.
But perhaps, exactly this is not wanted - I'm not sure. What do you think?

The biggest problem with this idea is the LyX file format change.
After 2.0 release it will remain fixed AFAIK - and this means the feature
will be a target for the 2.1 cycle. We want to get 2.0 out soon.

Hi Stephan,

Thanks!

Am I reading you correctly that the LyX internal dictionary is just a file? If 
so, is it a file I can add to and subtract from with a text editor or a perl 
script?

You mention you want to make the personal dictionary location more flexible. 
Sounds good to me. Let me ask you something -- besides being able to set it in 
Tools-Configure, would it be possible for you to add it on a per-document 
basis? It might be as simple as adding a special comment to the document:

# LYX_PERSONAL_DICTIONARY=/home/slitt/books/thrive/thrive.pws

and then being able to edit it from a Docuemnt-Settings, and recognize it 
when running spellcheck. The document's personal dictionary, if it exists, 
would override the Tools-Configure based personal dictionary.

The benefit of this is every document has words that belong to it, but these 
words would be wrong in another document. Names of characters in a fiction 
book come to mind instantly, but there could also be special acronyms for a 
special technology, etc.

Does that sound doable?

Questions and suggestions for spellcheck

2010-12-06 Thread Steve Litt
Hi all,

I just spellchecked a 108,000 word book (371 pages), so I have an immediate 
familiarity with the task under LyX. Here are some of my findings:

1) At least as relates to storing new words in the personal dictionary, my LyX 
1.6.4 ignores the personal dictionary at Tools-Settings-Spellchecker-
Personal_dictionary.

2) I set it, removed it, and then it came back. Ugh!

3) Checking Accept Compound Words appeared to do nothing, although I don't 
know what it's supposed to do.

4) Spellchecker always flags plurals of words ending in s, such as peoples' 
problems or all the buildings' furnaces -- anything ending in an 
aposterphe. However, when you send that word to the personal dictionary, it 
doesn't go in.

5) When you change something at Tools-Settings-Spellchecker-
Personal_dictionary, it's hard to say what needs to be done in order that it 
take effect. It thus presents as an intermittent. Detailed documentation is 
needed.

6) YMMV, but I could get only aspell to work with LyX -- ispell and hspell 
errored out.

Thanks

I believe the intention is to manage the personal dictionary internally, 
though I am not the one doing this work. It is your namesake, Stephan

There's a ticket about #2 in the bug tracker (#6688 -- I filed it), and I
  just saw a status update on it recently.  Apparently the personal
  dictionary entry is going away in LyX 2.0, so the bug won't need to be
  fixed.

With what will they replace the personal dictionary in LyX 2.0?

I believe the intention is to manage the personal dictionary internally, 
though I am not the one doing this work. It is your namesake, Stephan 
Witt ;-). The main motivation is that the various backends we use aren't 
at all consistent in how they handle adding and removing words, and some 
of them don't even support removal. There's also the issue with 
persistence, which you seem to have experienced. So doing it all inside 
LyX, as far as the personal dictionary goes, makes sense.

That's a good summary of my work, thanks. :-)

The current state for LyX 2.0 beta2 is a working internal personal dictionary 
at a fixed location inside your LyX users directory.  Now adding and removing 
of words works for me with aspell and hunspell with the internal personal 
dictionary on Linux and Mac OS X (Windows I couldn't test).

Next I want to make the location of the personal dictionary more flexible.

For LyX 1.6.9 I'll have a look at #6688 - I didn't see it earlier.

As I understand it the path to personal dictionary is used in 1.6.x for ispell 
(and external aspell?) only. 
And of course one should be able to clear the input field and save that.

You know what would be a really kewl LyX enhancement? If besides the LyX 
personal dictionary setting you point out in your response, there could be a 
per-document personal dictionary that, if present, overrides the LyX personal 
dictionary. It could go under Document-Settings-Language and could include 
the spellchecker choice and compound words etc. How cool would that be?

Spellcheck in 1.6.6 misses every second word

2010-05-20 Thread Sven Hoexter
Hi,
it seems to me that the spellcheck in LyX 1.6.6 misses every second word.
Am I the only one seeing this?

Running on Debian/sid with aspell aswell as enchant.

Actually, I think the problem may be that it fails to check the next word after 
it finds a misspelled word.


As said, I cannot reproduce that with LyX 1.6.6 on Windows. Here every 
misspelled word is correctly recognized.

I don't see this (and I cannot imagine what could have caused this). Could you 
post a test file?

 Round one:
 Catches Deis, correct it to Dies, next word detected is eni.
 
 Round two:
 Ignore Deis, next word detected is istt.

Thanks to xvidcap I could even create a short demo video (1.5MB).
