#12203 closed defect

Spell Check is not working

Reported by: shdawson Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.7.0 Keywords:


Well, I used to have Aspell (that came with Pidgin). Today, I noticed the spell check feature not work. It does not seem to be there anymore.

Not sure if the latest upgrade on Pidgin killed it or what. Need assistance on diagnosing here, so as to better report this problem.

Thank You, SHD

Pidgin 2.7.0 no longer uses aspell, I believe. See this FAQ entry.

See ticket #12183.

It is most likely either that you haven't installed a dictionary with 2.7.x, or that you have PHP in your PATH.

I have experienced the same problem, but with a new installation. It wouldn't install the dictionary automatically, and when I tried a manual install, the dictionary server is down, and I get no response.
