No Dictionary for German with new Spelling

Postby ExecutorElassus » Wed Feb 26, 2014 1:37 pm

So, I ran 'lyx -dbg files', because all of a sudden my German documents are all completely red-underlined. The German dictionary is not loading.

In my Document Settings for Language, I have the following options for German.
  • German
  • German (Austria)
  • German (Austria, old spelling)
  • German (old spelling)
  • German (Switzerland)
When I run with '-dbg files', I see the following output.
  1. HunspellChecker.cpp (174): check hunspell path: /usr/share/hunspell for language ngerman
  2. HunspellChecker.cpp (174): check hunspell path: /home/myhome/.lyx/dicts for language ngerman
  3. HunspellChecker.cpp (174): check hunspell path: /usr/share/lyx/dicts for language ngerman
  4. HunspellChecker.cpp (179): found /usr/share/lyx/dicts/en_US
  5. HunspellChecker.cpp (230): Hunspell speller for langage 0x1200818 at /usr/share/lyx/dicts/en_US.dic found
  6. PersonalWordList.cpp (54): load personal dictionary from: /home/myhome/.lyx/pwl_ngerman.dict

However, looking in '/usr/share/lyx/dicts/' I see the following files:
  1. dicts> ls
  2. de_AT.aff de_DE.aff en_CA.dic en_NZ.dic hyph_de_CH.dic th_de_CH_v2.dat
  3. de_AT.dic de_DE.dic en_GB.aff en_US.aff hyph_de_DE_1901.dic th_de_CH_v2.idx
  4. de_CH.aff dictionary.lst.en en_GB.dic en_US.dic hyph_de_DE.dic th_de_DE_v2.dat
  5. de_CH.dic en_AU.aff en_GB-oed.aff en_ZA.aff hyph_en_GB.dic th_de_DE_v2.idx
  6. de_DE_1901.aff en_AU.dic en_GB-oed.dic en_ZA.dic th_de_AT_v2.dat th_en_US_v2.dat
  7. de_DE_1901.dic en_CA.aff en_NZ.aff hyph_de_AT.dic th_de_AT_v2.idx th_en_US_v2.idx

So, why is HunSpell not identifying the file "de_DE.dic" as a correct German dictionary file, and loading it correctly? What is the actual file name HunSpell needs to see to load "de_DE.dic" as the dictionary file for German with with new spell-checking? Changing the language to "German (old spelling)" does not seem to help.

Cheers,

EE
