Kwrite spell check

As of Fedora 17 I am using KDE and so am somewhat new to some of the default applications. The default text editor seems to be kwrite and although there is an option for spell checking , there was no dictionary enabled by default.

I was able to enable spell checking by installing enchant-aspell =)

yum install enchant-aspell

Worked for kate as well.

    You should install hunspell-en instead! (And don’t ask me why the Hunspell maintainer decided not to drag in the English dictionary by default.)

    Aspell is the legacy spellchecking framework. You don’t really want that one.

    @Kevin Kofler – Thank you , I will try that. What is the advantage of hunspell over aspell ?

    Edit: hunspell-en works as well.
