gaim spelling doesn't work

Is there a way to get the spell check feature in gaim working with the arch package? It doesn't highlight any of my misspelled words. I have the gtkspell package installed. Other than that I can't think of anything to check. I'm using fully updated fluxbox, gaim, and arch packages. Thanks.

install an aspell dictionary. for example, i'm using the aspell-en package for english... that should fix you up :-D

I have aspell installed. Maybe I should just reinstall the whole set?

Re: gaim spelling doesn't work

do you have aspell-<somelanguagecode> installed too? by default aspell doesn't have a dictionary installed.

That was it, aspell-en was needed. Thanks!

the hurricaine? Right now we're beginning to get a bit of rain. I guess by early tuesday we'll be ransacked by it (it's gotta head directly at us you know  or at least thats the way it looks now wink). Other than that I'm enjoying waiting in line at walmart for 3 straight hours just so I can purchase a TV dinner.
I ought to set up a stand in there and sell purses and skirts to all these wussies, so they can sissy in style.
Hell I'd make a killin', dawg. Pimpin' it purse-profit-style, fo sho beyaatch!

I'm in Greenville right now and everybody here is hoping that the university gets out of class b/c of the storm. I'm not thinking that's going to happen.
