For us non-english speaking users, a spellchecker would be of a *great* help!!! Oper, Firefox, Maxthon have it!(-:

Spellchecker is already available for K-Meleon since a few month...

Look at my Extension page

AFAIK two spellcheckers:
Aspell
and
something like Mozilla spellchecker

on alain's pages - greetings to YU (beautiful Beograd?)

You install the extension. That gives You the infra structure to use spell checker.

Next: You need a dictionary. A dictionary is not with alain's files
( a dictionary is not included because most PPL want their native language plus perhaps English & the installer files are for many languages - alain would have his native fr-FR dictionary, and You would want one from YU - and I use de-DE smiling smiley )

I have the files (en-US.aff, en-US.dic, de-DE.aff and de-DE.dic) in a K-Meleon subfolder called "dictionaries".

I got the files from my Thunderbird installs.

p.s. I use the Mozilla spell checker. So I do not know about the other.
When this forum edit field is used the right click menue has an item "Spell Checker" that lets me change between the two dictionaries/languages.

You can probably also have both (Serbian and English). I think the dictionaries are all You need / else create Your native K-Meleon smiling smiley

I have tried to make Aspell work with K-Meleon there is a few month. It's really a pain to make it work with K-Meleon.

So I really prefer and advise to use K-Meleon's Mozilla Spellchecker port.

@alain: IMHO Your adaption of Mozilla spell checker should be included by default.

p.s. The different national dictionaries are no problem in the national issues smiling smiley

I would not waste effort into yet another spell checker (unless You use it Yourself).

@guenter:
I've unzipped the Mozilla spellchecker found on Alain's site into my KM folder and - after restart - the plugin was found and I have found the feature in the "right-click" menu, but could not figure out how to make it actually work. So, I'm certain I am not doing all the steps to complete the installation. Any guesses as to what I might be missing would be appreciated.
Thanks,

@gvgerman,

you have not to take the zip file which is the setup script with, that's right all the needed files, but in the tab just under, where are available all the setups. It's easier to use smiling smiley

For using it, as you have the menu, it seems to be ok.

The Spell Checker menu allows you to :

- change the dictionary,
- set the default language dictionary.
- change the dictionary folder (you can take the distionary folder of other programs like Thunderbird, Firefox, OpenOffice...)
- correct misspelled words
- enable or disable the spell checker

I have set a shortcut an accel to quickly have purposed corrections and generally spell Checker menu.

Just hit Ctrl+* when textarea has the focus, and you'll have the menu.

Hitting Ctrl-* when cursor is located on a misspelled word opens directly the correction menu. It's quicker than with mouse, just hit the accel, choose the word, validate with enter, and continue.

You have to position the cursor in the misspelled word first. Then right-click.

@alain,

Thank you for your reply. I installed your extension and it is working well. Actually, now that I know how the spell checker works, the zip file approach did not work, in retrospect.

Thank you - and guenter! - for all the work you do here with KM.

Much appreciated!

I repeat, the zip file is not for setup purpose, but the source of the setup.

I have changed the link to allow users to go directly to setups.

I agree 100% Aspell opens command prompt which is not easy to use! I prefere Mozilla's spell checker.

It seems, that I have the same trouble with spellchecker's context menu as guenter had two years ago. I can't get this list with variants of spelling for the misspelled word neither I can assign the alter location of dictionaries, as it is shown at this image.

Instead I get only the shorten context menu even when I position the cursor in the misspelled word.
Besides I have no any new entry [SpellCheck Configuration] in the menu Edit -> Configuration, as it is stated in the descripton here. And there are numerous of other issues as well sad smiley

Has anyboy any idea, what might be the reason of this issue?

Thanks!

Are you tried this other spellcheker?
Could be other version better.
Are you sure to have some dictionary in spellcheker folder?

Spellchecker worked with Firefox 2 dictionaries, but I don't know if this kplugin work with Firefox 3 dictionaries.

Yes, I'm quite sure (please look at the picture). Some of those files are native K-Meleon dictionaries, which were included in the original package
from this page http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/file.php?4,file=199,filename=dictionaries.zip.
So I'm afraid, that the cause of the issue in somewhere else. But where exactly?

I didn't remember how it works, as there is a long time I'm made this package, but you can't see purposed words using right-click on the underlined word, but using Ctrl-* on the underlined word.

I agree it's not too much easy to use, but the kplugin doesn't allows a better way.

To change the location of the dictionnaries, you must hit Alt-* key.

In the package offered on my page, there is a bug in translation. The kml file must be saved in utf-8 format, but I think there is no problem with en-US or en-GB

Wow! This works! Thanks you for the advice and certainly for your so-much-needed plugin too.

Well, but there in forum (in the current topic and in the topic some guys state, that it should work via mouse right click as well (look at this post or this one).
BTW my menu entries are different from those original: I have no any new entry [SpellCheck Configuration] in the menu Edit -> Configuration, as it is stated in the description here.

I had some problems with my profile. I have set a new clean portable version, installed all extensions from previous Km and after first restart the same problem occured.

Bookmarks were gone,icons were all over the place since cache files and icons to disk were checked in preferences, skin was set to default and so on. No major problem, just it nagged me to do this every time I opened it. Profilebackup did not solve the issue.

Since at opening Km asked me about spellchecker and a searchbarext and since I recently installed Search 1.0.4, I uninstalled all three of them. I installed searchbarext back - all was Ok. With spellcheck - same problem. I uninstalled it and installed Search. All OK.

It looks like Spellcheck does not like one of the new extensions (Readability, capplus, alexapps, url_void, rsautovait, filesindexer, linksextractor, ...). Now, without it (i. e. K-Ext110_SpellCheck.exe), Km loads without problem (I several times tried and managed to open and close it without partially loss of profile. I tried it on public comp and it was all OK).

If some of you have the same problem, try to uninstall spelchecker (old version). I have not tried new version. But I do not think a lot of people would have the same problem since they do not have as many macros installed as I do.

Can you give the km version affected by this problem?
Can you have a look to the console (Tools > Console) and report the possible errors or warnings ?

I personnaly use spellchecker with 1.5.4 without problem, except the kml file which isn't rightly encoded (ANSI instead of UTF-8) which is a problem for menus (incorrect with accent and or some particular caracters)

Hi, guenter.

Speaking of the "not so obvious" can you, or someone please tell me where I can find a dictionary and how to apply it to Spellchecker? I have all of files from Spellchecker and manually moved them to the "apparently" correct locations. The C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\KM 1.5.4 new\dictionaries folder only has en-US.aff and en-US.dic
When I right-click on a word and select "Spell Checker" nothing happens.

Thanks you.

Charlie

The default dictionnaries folder is located under K-Meleon root folder (dictionnaries) and can be set by hitting Alt * from within a textarea part of the page.

You can then set it to the value you want.

You can load different dictionaries from thunderbird extension website, or, quicker, use the openoffice dictionaries folder.

I was not sure that the version 3 of thunderbird uses the same dictionnaries, but I have tried it under linux with 3.2.0 which uses hunspell dictionaries, and it works without problem.

For Linux (wine), this folder is Z:\usr\share\hunspell
I don't remember for Windows but it must be something like C:\Program_files\openoffice\share\dict\ but you should easily found it by searching *.aff or *.dic

Remember just 2 points about this extension:

- the use and call is only avalaible from within textarea
- The two keys used for all the spellchecker functions are:
......Alt * to choose the dictionaries folder
......Ctrl * for dictionary choice and corrections

The default dictionaries folder has file named en-US (for example), instead of openoffice or thunderbird folders where files are names en_US (for example.

Just a little trick: when hitting Ctrl *, the action is different depending of the position of the text pointer. If it's located on an miss-spelled word, Ctrl * offered the correction contextual menu added with some settings entries, else, it just offers some settings entries.

To quickly correct a text, I first go to the first miss-spelled word, I hit Ctrl * to correct it, and I navigate then with Ctrl-Right ( or Ctrl-Left) to go to the hext word to correct.
