When you have installed the dictionary for the language which is configured in /etc/profile.d/lang.sh aspell will automatically use this dictionary. The syntax is
aspell -c mytext-to-check.txt
Did you read the manpage for aspell? afaik aspell includes the functionality of hunspell and ispell.
I would recommend that you use aspell once with the normal dictionary, if this works you may take a look at personal dictionaries.
And please describe clearer what you did and what you achieved so far.
Here I have valid files .aspell.de.prepl, .aspell.de.pws, .aspell.en.prepl and .aspell.en.pws, they have been created automatically while spellchecking.
BTW: if your filename is really aspel.en.pws and not aspell.en.pws, how should this work?
I will start at the end of your reply. The file aspel.en.pws was a mispelling on my behalf I realized when i posted but was too late to change. my file was infact aspell.en.pws sorry about that.
I just ran a spell check and none of the files you mentioned eg .prepl, pws have been created. I ran spell check with calligra.
My achivements so far,,,
a sore head
many google searches
a visit to #caligra on freenode
avisit to #slackware on freenode
a visit to #kde-devel on freenode
email to patrick
just before i checked in here had an interesting chat in kde-devel,
I explained I wanted to create a dictionary of scientific terms and use in cunjunction with the standard dictionary in slackware. They say it wont work and i will need to create my dictionary and merge it with the standard english from slackware. so i got a link to a piece of code http://quickgit.kde.org/?p=kdelibs.g...aspelldict.cpp
and with that piece of code i must make a few files a .rws and a few others and my word list i presume merged with the standard word list and follow the tutorial http://blog.copyninja.info/2011/05/t...tionaries.html
to create an aspell dictionary to use.
Now that is all well and good but as far as i can see now i still don't know which spell checker calligra or kwrite is using and since i ran a spell check with calligra just a moment ago and no aspell files were created i can only presume aspell is not being used by calligra. there was onone over in #calligra who knew how to help me.
i guess if i could figure out which spell program was being used would be a great help?
The spell check is working till i create the aspell.en.pws file then fails
I did read the aspel man page.
that is how i got the recipe to create my own .pws file.
how can i figure out which spell checker is being used by
is there a config file for the spell checker?
is that config file part of sonnet or is it part of enchant which is standing between the spell checker and the app.
basically i am lost now and more confused than when i started this project.
thanks again for your interest
ps aspell is working as i tested from the command line. ispell is also working. and hunspell was working till i removed the dictionaries to test an idea. sorry hunspell had no dictionaries originally and i got some and installed them since some people were having problems over at the calligra forum and this solved their problems but not mine so i removed them. the guys over at #calligra say calligra will use aspell or hunspell. they didn't mention ispell.
