Howto properly install dictionary for ispell/kde?

I'm trying to install a german dictionary to enable german spell checking in KDE (Kile).
I found the package ispell-de-3.2.06-alt2.i586.rpm somewhere and converted into tgz and installed it.
Now I can choose german language for spell checking in the KDE control center. However, when I use the spell checking from an application, no word is recognized and the dicitonary seems to be empty.

What is the proper way to enable german spell checking for KDE/Kile with Slackware?

Thanks in advance!
