Evolution multilingual spellchecking in Debian Etch


Hi,

I just installed Debian Etch (rc1) on an IBM A50p and am trying to wrap my head around multilingual spellchecking in Evolution (2.6.3). I managed to get English and Danish spell checking to work by installing aspell, ispell, myspell, and ienglish, idanish and gnome-spell.

My problem is that I would like to get Indonesian spellchecking to work as well. As I don't know which spelling system Evolution uses and because the Evolution documentation refers to using Ximian Red Carpet (!!!) to install extra dictionaries, I am pretty much lost at this point. I did find the following link, but I am not sure which of the dictionaries are the newest, nor if they have anything to do with Evolution OR how to install the dictionary:

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/aspell/dict/id/

Cheers

Evolution multilingual spellchecking in Debian Etch.

I can now add that I tried the following:

I downloaded aspell5-id-1.2-0.tar.bz2 and then unpacked the archive. The ReadMe file explained how to compile it (I have never tried this before). I followed the instructions and here were the results:

$ ./configure
Finding Dictionary file location ... /usr/lib/aspell
Finding Data file location ... /usr/lib/aspell
$ make
/usr/bin/word-list-compress d < id.cwl | /usr/bin/aspell --lang=id
create master ./id.rws
$ sudo make install
mkdir -p /usr/lib/aspell/
cp id.rws id.multi indonesian.alias /usr/lib/aspell/
cd /usr/lib/aspell/ && chmod 644 id.rws id.multi indonesian.alias
mkdir -p /usr/lib/aspell/

As far as I can tell, there were not any errors (please confirm), but when I open Evolution, there is still no Indonesian spellchecking available. Any ideas?

Cheers
