In the interest of correct spelling, I decided to integrate CircleCode's suggested change to fix hunspell and make it required.

Chances are this is opinionated, but I think if you can afford to install Thunderbird, you can also install hunspell.

  • %u change not implemented, not sure if this is a good idea.
  • Let me know if this breaks usage with other spell checkers. I have no idea what others there are.

@kuba-orlik I am not sure what is going on there. The package builds and installs successfully for me using yay and just makepkg + pacman -U.

Is anyone getting an error like this?

CircleCode, you are right, I updated all the Exec= to use the hunspell DICTPATH.

CircleCode commented on 2020-10-20 08:06

@rko I think you updated the wrong Exec: the one updated is in a desktop action and not the main Exec (thus explaining the lack of %u) The main one is at line 58

Right now, the change has no effect.
