Deleting something added to dictionary.


I accidentally added something when spell checking that was horrendously spelt. Where do find the conf file, or whatever might be used to configure spellcheck/dictionary?

No idea...not enough details to help you.

What program were you in? How did you add it? Version/distro of Linux? Anything?? If you're talking about OpenOffice, check for the standard.dic file, probably located in your home directory, under .libreoffice/3-suse/user/wordbook/ Path may be different for you...I'm using openSUSE with LibreOffice.

Oh, right details, sorry. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04, was in xchat at the time.

You might be using Enchant or Aspell: look in the home directory for those, or else just search for any .dic file.
