1.6 beta spellchecker problem
Posted by: Daveski17
Date: November 17, 2010 05:43PM

I have downloaded the beta KM & it looks great. I appear to be having problems with the spellchecker though. The dictionary is in the folder but I don't seem to have the plug-in to run the dictionary. I downloaded the dictionary from here.

I can confirm the problem too.

p.s. My wild guess - spelltest.dll has some imports from xpcom.dll (which is GRE version specific) so spelltest cannot work.

OK, thanks Guenter. I suppose there is no work-around to the problem then?

Well, I hope they fix the spellchecker for the release candidate, otherwise I'm going to have to buy a dictionary LOL! smiling smiley

I think spelltest.dll is a mark307's kplugin:

Mirror on kmext:

Have someone his mail or can contact with he?
His website is down since October 31th.

Maybe Hao has contact to Mark307.

BTW. I downloaded most of what was on Mark307's homepage when I heard the bad news that it will stop to exist. I am very fearful in such cases that something is lost.

If we must do it without Mark307's help. I have the source for spellcheck 0.7. Its GPL2 & includes a make file for Mingw. Do we know PPL that can compile with MinGW?

Or can someone compile with another compiler for example Visual C by Microsoft? Or just knows how. Command line version of VC 7.1 (Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003) and VC 2005 Express should be still in the net, so...

Else it would be sufficient to tell me how 2. I own a VC7.1 and a VC8 version. smiling smiley

Why would you pay for a compiler, with perhaps problems to compile.

Install MingGW smiling smiley

On my PC not only the spelltest.dll which is responsible for the K-Meleon integration seems broken but the whole GRE part of the Spellckeck.

So we need VC for the GRE part grinning smiley

I don't know if it's just me, but the spellchecker appears to be partly working again in Beta2. there's a dotted red line under each occurrence of 'spellchecker' in this post. grinning smiley

I don't know if it started working again with the new beta (I installed this over the top of Beta1) or if I may have done something else to resurrect it.

No corrections are offered but it's nice to see the real-time checking back again.

Oh and Merry Christmas to all on the K-M forum!

I think it was merely forgotten to add the spellchk.dll in 1.6.b1 or deleted it by mistake.

LOL! I'm messing a bit with that thing, just for curiosity, and tried to add a word to "en-US.dic", the big dictionary - and now that word is actually NOT underlined anymore, but instead **ALL** others!! grinning smiley grinning smiley grinning smiley

Edit: Perhaps it would be possible to use a macro for adding new words...
Oh well, probably all nonsense if clueless me thinks about such stuff, hopefully some expert will come up with a fully functional extension, instead of bothersome workarounds smiling smiley

Unlike other Kplugins AFAIK spelltest.dll references *.h's from Mozilla GRE.

I, an absolute user type, came 6 errors close/away to a recompile with SDK 1.9.
IMHO a solvable problem for any that can do programming in c++.

p.s. siria, dir Frohe Festtage und ein glückliches...

Win98 & 1.6. Wenn du etwas an den Skins, die als Standart beigefügt werden, geändert haben willst, solltest du die enttsprechenden *.bmp an disrupted oder mich senden, wir haben die Ikonen geportet d.h. Aura 4 K-Meleon gemacht ( oder an einen Dev senden ).

Ich werde keine Arbeit in weitere *.bmp, die ich auch garnicht testen könnte, investieren. Auf Englisch hatte ich dir dies schon gepostet.

Das Problem Win9x kann keine partielle Alpha-Transparenz.
Wenn dein Fix unter NTs optisch einigermassen ist, werde ich ihn vorschlagen.

Dir auch ein frohes Fest etc. smiling smiley

Also wenn ihr echt bereit wärt, auch Toolbars mit 'einfacherer' Transparenz immerhin mal in Betracht zu ziehen, dann sollt ich schon mal den Hintern hochkriegen und mich mal dran verkünsteln smiling smiley Problem ist nur, dass ich bei allem so lahm bin, aber vielleicht schaff ich's doch mal irgendwann demnächst. Eigentlich geht's ja vor allem um die unsichtbare Privbar, die meisten anderen Icons funktionieren ja einigermaßen, nur ein paar haben schwarzen Hintergrund statt transparent. Die sind aber unkritisch, weil das glaub welche sind, die eh nur temporär auftauchen, wie bookmarks-Symbole im Aufklappmenü, oder die Suchleiste am unteren Rand. Halb so wild. Hmm, aber hab ein paar starke Zweifel, ob ich das so hinkriege, ohne dass die Opacity für die weichen NT-Ränder dabei total verloren geht... wahrscheinlich wird die Schrift dann genauso pixelig wie auf der Phoenity Skin...

Danke.

Keine Frage. Ich unterstütze, was mehr Leuten nutzt, wenn es für die Meisten/NT ok ist.
Ich habe nur selbst wenig Chance (ohne 9.x.OS das 1.6 laden kann) - und bin mittlerweile auch zu frustriert - es ohne Test OS zu versuchen.

Ich habe AFAIK die Ikonen ohne Transparenz mit Magic Pink noch da. Sie sehen OK aus. Versuche dran zu denken, sie dir zu nach den Festtagen zu senden, wenn ich sie finde. Notfalls: mich erinnern.

Dorian wollte IMHO eine leichtere Portierbarkeit erreichen und Aura war sein spezieller Dev Wunsch. Es ist der beste Ikonen Satz! drool smiley

Den Wunsch haben disrupted & ich versucht zu erfüllen - leichtere Portierbarkeit = derzeit nur für NT basierte Systeme zu haben.

Wir werden mit einer Teilung leben müssen - bis ? KernelX Projekt weiter ist und das unterstützt. Oder es nie haben.

p.s. Ich habe das Meiste gemacht und werde deins den Devs vorschlagen. Wenn = OK.
Ich entscheide nix endgülig.

I made quick dirty hack with the spelltest plugin for that can work with k-meleon 1.6 beta2.

An issue is found what a popup menu appears near the mouse pointer always. I guess the plugin cannot acquire accessible object.

I wish this is useful for the moment.

@ Mark307

I have installed the files (DLL & KMM) as instructed and deleted the two dat files. When I have a word underlined in red I tried Cntl Q and I get a menu in a popup which has 'dictionaries', an arrow, and 'Disable spellchecker'. The arrow adds 'en-US' with a check (grayed out) and 'Set Default'. How do you get suggestions for the word and how you select a word?

I have Siria's Spellpref.kmm installed, but I don't think I made any changes with it.

I am on Win 7 32 bit ops sys and KM 1.6.0 Beta2.

@JamesD
Sorry. That instruction is obsoleted. Just copy dll and kmm (if necessary) is proper way for it, install Seamonkey's spellchecker component is unnecessary.

If you installed Seamonkey's spellchecker component, I suggest you to reinstall KM (or to fix manually).

If you did not, I guess a text cursor is on correct word or blank. This suggestion works only when a cursor is on misspelled (underlined) word.

regards.

Just an info about dictionnaries location.

You always can add this pref :

user_pref("kmeleon.plugins.spelltest.dictDir", "Z:\\usr\\share\\hunspell");

In this sample, the folder is the one to use under Linux to use OpenOffice dictionaries.

Something nice, before having add the pref, Default lang was en-US (the one in K-Meleon dictionaries folder, After, it automatically set fr-FR by default. I think it because I had changed the Language in F2 -> Page Display -> Languages (added French/France, et set it first.

No.

The GRE version used in this CCF has no basic spelling support (prerequisite) & the kplugin & kmm is for integration with K-Meleon standard macro language.

CCF uses Lua macro language.

I think this can be adapted, copy from K-Meleon 1.6b2 \components\spellchk.dll file and \dictionaries folder to CCFME and copy mark's spelltest.dll kplugin in CCFME \kplugin folder.

Modify the textbox context menu to call the spelltest kplugin. I think this is made with LUA code.
