Making spell-checking work on openSUSE

Postby localghost » Wed Nov 18, 2009 2:54 pm

As I reported earlier, I had difficulties with making spell-checking work for TeXworks on my openSUSE Linux distribution [1,2]. Now I found a solution for this issue [3]. It is in form of a shell script and has two major advantages for users of openSUSE.

  • Retrieval of the source code and modification for openSUSE.
  • Building of an RPM package for easy installation.

I didn't use the script but I took a look into and did the modification on the source code by hand. After compilation as described on the TeXworks homepage I got a binary with a working spell-checker. Now I have everything I need.

[3] TeXworks rpm

I almost forgot this topic but now I want to provide my final solution. In the meantime I finished the setup of my systems and ended it up with translating a suggestion by meho_r in another topic [1]. I created a symbolic link so that I now have a permanent working spell-check.
  1. ln -s /usr/share/myspell /usr/share/myspell/dicts
