Hi, on a fresh installation I noticed that the only dictionary Evolution shows is for Hebrew.
$ pacman -Qs hebrew local/hspell 1.1-2 Hebrew spell-checker
I then tried to remove this but pacman says enchant needs it which is needed by a lot of packages:
checking dependencies... error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: gedit: requires enchant :: gtkhtml4: requires enchant :: kdelibs: requires enchant :: libwebkit3: requires enchant
I just ask myself why is a dictionary a depemdency for such a package?

To fix the problem of the Hebrew dictionary being the only one Evolution sees, you need to install any other dictionary. Typically you would want packages like aspell-[LANGUAGE]
Also regarding why enchant actually depends on hspell: http://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/ … dcdb8dc519
Thanks for the link. I was just wondering that there's a dictionary of a not so often spoken language installed by default. Didn't seem so KISS for me ;b
If you want to remove the 'hspell' package, you can install 'enchant-pure' package from <https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/enchant-pure/> which provides 'enchant'.
