Thank you for your comments, Arch user exaos. I have bumped the Arch version to fix the execute permissions on /opt/leo/

Please let me clarify the spell check situation. With a default Arch installation, and python2-pyenchant installed, leo will start. However, it starts with error messages, and the spell check will not work. The reason is that Leo is written to install into a user-writable directory. Workarounds may be required when installing leo with Arch package management, which installs into system directories. This is why the leo.install file reports that leo "can be configured" to use pyenchant.

The leo spell check requires a user-writable dictionary file, so that words can be added. The default dictionary /opt/leo/leo/plugins/spellpyx.txt is shared by users, and is not user-writable. The pyenchant error message is misleading, as the dictionary file contents are valid, but the permissions are not valid. To configure spell check requires several steps. First, create ~/.leo/myLeoSettings.leo for your personal leo settings, as described in the Leo website documentation. Next, edit your personal settings to tell leo about your personal dictionary file. Under settings -> spell checking, find the headline "enchant_local_dictionry = None". Change "None" to "~/.leo/spellpyx.txt", and save your personal settings. Finally, copy the spellpyx.txt file from its default location to your ~/.leo directory. The next time you start leo, the spell check should work with no error messages. Please post again if you still have issues.

Do not install `python2-pyenchant` as recommended! It will cause leo failed to start. Another problem is, the `/opt/leo/` is not executable after install, please fix it!

Update for new upstream version, thanks to Arch user mesteiral.

Upstream updated to 4.9. Note that there is now only one GUI (pyqt). The tkinter GUI is gone.

Minor version bump because python2-qt was renamed to python2-pyqt.
