Well I just downloaded the Aspell checker for my Opera internet browser. I succesfully installed it, but I reach trouble on the dicitonary part. I download the english one, then I am not sure what to do from there. I have tried putting it in the dict folder but that doesn't work. Any help is highly appreciated.

That is where I found out about Aspell, and all it says is this.

2) Install one or more Aspell dictionaries.


I have no idea how to install it, that is my question. lol

What about step 1?

To spell-check with Opera, you need to install both GNU Aspell and at least one Aspell dictionary.

You do have a dictionary installed after installing the GNU right? The dictionary should be in the context menu of any edit field and the button should appear on the Toolbar of Opera. This didn't happen after restarting opera?

Yes. What I did was download the english dictionary and saved it to my desktop. It happened to be in a zip file, So I unzipped it and a got a folder called aspell6-en-6.0-0. I have tried putting that folder and the zipped file in C:\Program Files\Aspell\dict with no luck at all.

Wonder if this has to go into Opera's plug-in folder? Haven't tried to install this yet, but will sometime soon. I take it then you are getting no context menu with this option listed when using opera or highlighting text in Opera?

I use it occasionally to view my web pages and I have loads of Widgets. lol Think the spell checker will be a good addition once I get around to it.

Ya I agree.

Or they could have one built into Fass and that would make things a whole lot easier!

Also how do you like Joost? Still using it?

Joost is just great! Can't wait to have more content added even if I haven't seen all of it yet. Wish I had one of those large HD flatpanels. Video would be fantastic! Thanks again.

Darn! I totally forgot about it for now. Trying to help a friend get his site (Allen's Computers) set up and he is installing about a thousand php modules! Not to mention the hosting service was installing new servers at the same time and they were destroying his database every time. Think it is finally stable after getting a lawyer to straighten them out. Will try to install it some time this weekend or next week. Keep reminding me as the meds VA has me on makes me tend to forget things.
