If I open the popup menu by right clicking on the text field where I enter my messages and choose "Languages/de_CH_frami", it will always be set to "de_AT_frami". Choosing one of the different English variants work though.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose de_CH_frami for the language of the spell checker in the popup menu
2. Open the popup menu again and check which language is selected
de_AT_frami is selected.
de_CH_frami is selected.
Version of installed packages that might be relevant:
net-im/pidgin-2.10.4 (but happened with earlier versions, too)
Still happening with pidgin 2.10.6.
There is a new version of myspell-de: app-dicts/myspell-de-r1
I'm pretty sure that it will solve the problem. Can you install this package and retry, please?
1) the package is still keyworded - you have to add this package to
2) The filenames of the German dictionaries were changed (which is the solution of the problem). You may have to re-select the language if you start your program for the first time to Languages/de_CH or whatever you use
I have to select the dictionary twice, but it finally works after all the time. :)
