global spell checker

Does anyone know of a global spell checker for linux? I'm running Ubuntu & KDE, and lots of applications have spell check built in, which is great, but I'm looking for something more like Spell Catcher for OS X. It catches mistakes anywhere that you're typing, even a search bar or form, and pops up a little window with suggested spellings. I've been searching for a couple weeks now, off and on, but can't find anything.
