Re: "Spell checker has no dictionaries"

2018-10-24 Thread John Kane
 I just installed 4 or 5 spellchecker dictionaries using the standard sudu 
apt-get install command in Ubuntu. 

Of course, I installed the hunspell-en-ca dictionary that spells things like 
colour correctly

Rich,

Hunspell uses its own set of dictionaries, such as Hunspell-en-us (U.S. 
English), Hunspell-en-gb (English with unnecessary extra letters), 
Hunspell-de-med (medical terms in German) etc. Looks like you have to 
install one or more of them. Assuming your default language is U.S. 
English, you'll need Hunspell-en-us for sure. With Ubuntu and Mint, you 
can do this through Synaptic or (at least in Mint) the Software Sources 
app. I forget what distro you use, but if has a package manager I would 
start there.

Paul,

  Well that would certainly explain the problem.


I forget what distro you use, but if has a package manager I would start
there.


  Sure enough, SlackBuilds.org has an English language package which
provides five dictionaries of English usage - Australian,
Canadian, United States, and two forms of British English.

  As the package maintainer explains, "he reason I've included two forms of
British English dictionaries are:

"1. The -ise suffix is more commonly used by British speakers and all other
forms such as en_DK, en_IE, en_IN, etc are symbolic links to en_GB-ise.

"2. the en_GB-ize/en_GB-oxendict which uses the -ize suffix is known as
Oxford English Dictionary Spelling and is generally favored for academic,
formal, and technical writing."

  I modified the build script to limit it to US_en as that's the only flavor
I speak/write.

Thanks for the pointer,

Rich

Re: spell checker

2017-04-06 Thread John Kane
Just tried it and it seems that it will only correct one word in one cell.
However if one is spell checking regular text above and below the table it
will a) check the text above and below the text but only correct one word
in one cell of the table.

If this is a feature and not a bug, it seems a very unusual feature

 What do you have under Tools  Preferences  Paths  Hunspell?

 In my opinion we should automatically fill that in (e.g. LyX should
 try to find the Hunspell libraries).

Indeed. Looks like you installed from the official repos, and it seems

The hunspell dictionary path input field is enabled if and only if
the code of the hunspell engine is part of LyX. This is a decision
of the LyX packager. It looks like the LyX package you're using is

hunspell and LyX are two independent programs. LyX has builtin hunspell support

 When I configured Lyx, I could see Lyx found hunspell.

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.

 LyX does not find the dictionaries in your home directory.
 You have to point it there in LyX path's preferences.

Hi Junchao,

yes, that's your user directory. LyX is looking for dictionaries in:
1) preference specified directory
2) user directory + dicts
3) lyx binary directory + dicts
4) /usr/share/myspell/dicts

You don't have to set the DICTIONARY environment.
LyX tries to find the appropriate dictionary matching the language of the text 
inside your document.
That's e.g. en_US if your document language is set to English(US) and/or you 
have the language of some text set to it.

Regards,
Stephan

   That is, the dictionaries need to be found by LyX, not just hunspell.

Hello,
The spellchecker in Lyx is marking all strings which end with a

for this irritating problem, but to no avail.  Any suggestions will be 
appreciated.
This also occurs with hyphens; unhyphenated,  2 manifold   is considered 
OK, but   2-manifold   is not.  It would be nice to be able to exclude 
these punctuation marks from the spellchecker.  I use debian testing, 
lyx-2.02.

I found it easier to use the feature where the words unknown to the 
spellchecker are underlined in the text in red, since in my case there are 
many scientific names or dash-combined names.

Probably not, I guess you merely need to install the correct spelling 
software.


Debian is similiar to ubuntu, on debian LyX uses enchant for 
spellchecking. The package libenchant must be installed for this to work.


Try apt-cache search libenchant to see what the exact package name is. 
(In my case libenchant1c2a, could be different on ubuntu)


Then, install the package. After that, restart LyX and use the menu 
Tools-Reconfigure.



If ubuntu is set up to use aspell, make sure you have libaspell 
installed. Compiled-in apsell functionality will need the library 
version of aspell.


Finally, make sure you have dictionary files for the language(s) you're 
using.

You need to recompile, not install Lyx. I guess that Lyx found in the

As far as I know you need to install libaspell-dev

Re: Spell checker in Lyx

2011-06-15 Thread Julio Rojas
You need to recompile, not install Lyx. I guess that Lyx found in the
repository is compiled without aspell support. This is why you need to
compile it as directed in the link provided.

I did compile LyX as well as hunspell on my machine, as well as any other 
package: it's an amd64 gentoo system. As for configuring Lyx so it uses 
hunspell, just go to Tools/Preferences/Language/Spellchecker.

Re: Spell checker on Mac not working

Hi,

Sorry for posting in this old thread. I've had the very same issue that
Graham reported. After having followed Bennett's instructions, I now get the
following error message:
The file /Library/Application Support/aspell6-en-6.0-02/en-common.rws can
not be opened for reading.

Any ideas how to solve this would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks, Dennis

Do you actually have en-common.rws in that location? If so, do you
have permission to read it?

No, actually I don't. There's no file with that name on my computer. However, I 
do have a file called en-common.cwl in that location.
I am logged in with admin rights, thus should be able to read anything that is
