spell check problems

I installed abiword 2.2.8 and it didn't work so I uninstalled and then installed 2.2.7-3.

But somehow in the process the spell check broke. I also lost spell checking in OpenOffice

please help.

It sounds like uninstalling 2.2.8 may have somehow screwed up a spellcheck library componant Abiword and OpenOffice share... try reinstalling whatever library you use for that (ispell, aspell, pspell, whatever you were using) -- be sure to use the same version of this library you were using before (unless you've upgraded, just copy it off your install disk).
