Description zorrk 2004-10-16 00:05:30 UTC
Aspell-0.60 installing in /usr/lib/aspell-0.60/ instead /usr/lib/aspell/ so kde don't see aspell dictionaries.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.USE="~x86" emerge aspell
Comment 1 Anders Rune Jensen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-16 05:31:25 UTC
Does reemerging the kde packages related to spelling after emerging the new aspell work?
Comment 2 Anders Rune Jensen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-16 06:11:43 UTC
Another thing, make sure that you reemerge all dictionaries after emerging the new aspell so they will be compiled into the correct directory.
Comment 3 zorrk 2004-10-19 00:31:48 UTC
I have reemerge all dictionaries after emerging the new aspell,and they install in too /usr/lib/aspell-0.60/,but kde don't see them too.
I don't think that it is required to reemerge kde packages (with aspell-0.50 the is no need for that). The aren't any kde packages related aspell (at least no kde install depend on it).
I think that simulink in ebulid will correct this bug .

Ps.sorry for my english 
Comment 4 Anders Rune Jensen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-22 01:06:11 UTC
It wasn't needed to reemerge the kde packages after upgrading to a never version of aspell-0.5 because they used the same library location. It seems kspell2 (the spelling library in kde) is part of the kdelibs package. Could you try reemerging that and see if it works?

Thank you.

Comment 6 zorrk 2004-12-10 07:24:01 UTC
I have made upgrade from kde 3.3.0 to 3.3.1 and nothing is change.
Ps.sorry for such log time of response.

See this kde bug:

I submitted a possible workaround there:

Another possible workaround is to create a symlink
/usr/lib/aspell -> aspell-0.60

Very nice detective work. CC'ed to get their feedback on this.
Comment 9 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-12 13:02:22 UTC
Anders: Gregorio is devrel's Bug 68818, hopefully metamorphing into a Gentoo KDE dev, soon. ;)
Comment 10 enrico 2005-01-30 01:54:55 UTC
Is it possible to create at least a symlink on install?
so: /usr/lib/aspell-0.60 -> /usr/lib/aspell
KDE fix won't come till 4.0 and without that fix dicts won't work on Gentoo!
Comment 11 Gregorio Guidi (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-08 03:40:56 UTC
The patch linked in comment 7 is now in kdelibs-3.3.2-r3.
(and it's already applied for kde-3.4)
