Description Martin L ü c h e m 2007-03-16 08:40:26 UTC
Version:           1.9.5 (using KDE 3.5.5, Debian Package 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-6 (4.0))
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.18-4-686

When I select the dictionary "English (common)" this will not have any effect to spell checking. Is this just a dummy? This is irritating and should not happen!

Only in KMail or in other apps as well?
Comment 2 Martin L ü c h e m 2007-03-16 09:32:17 UTC
Well I can select it in KDE control center. I have no idea if this has any effect! Other applications: Yes, konqueror does react in the same way! That is: I select "English (common)" and the system gives me German words as proposal.

Maybe a KSpell bug then, but it could be in the backend as well. Which backend do you use? Aspell, Ispell, ...?

wrong dictionary

This screenshot shows, that the so called "common" language settings do not
work at all. Now, I have a German text but English proposals - how that?

So this new screenshot shows, that even the German "common" dictionary does not
work. In this case it is the other way around: The proposals are in english
instead of german!

does anyone work on this question? Spell checking still does not work as it should in kde.

Thanks for the help! No answer in 2 years so i assume noone is working on that and now I am not sure if the bug still exists. I will close it!

Assuming there will not happen anything on this bug any more I use "wontfix". (See http://en.opensuse.org/Bug_Reporting_FAQ)
