→Spell Check Install
=== Spell Check Install ===
For working spell check, you need [http://gtkspell.sourceforge.net/
(In Ubuntu 12.10, the libgtkspell-3-0 package is not suitable [https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtkspell3/+bug/1114403] as it is API incompatible with the official release 3.0.0, released on 2012-11-12 )
If the package is not in your distributions packages, you need to compile the spell check. For this, obtain the
GtkSpell 3.3.0 or later source code, and extract the code to a directory, eg gtkspell3, and go into this directory using the terminal.
Before continuing, remove any old version of gtkspell v3 you might have installed before!
