Spelling for Geany
I have compiled Geany (0.21) from the source code because I wanted it to play along with Geany plug-ins. So after I compiled and installed Geany from source i compiled Geany plugin 0.21. I did this to get spell check to work with Geany. And it works fine now. (provided you have aspell and some dictionaries installed properly). I've made two pet packets out of this two installations so now others who are running Lucent Puppy can just install these packages if they would want to have spell check ability in your Geany editor.
To enable spell checking after installation go to Geany -> Tools -> Plugin manager. There you'll find a box where you can highlight spellcheck.so and then press OK. Spell check can now be activated from the Tools menu at the bottom.
Yes I noticed. Good work. I've also used AbiWord to spell check but I think that AbiWord is very unstable. Crashes very easily if for instance i mixe fonts, etc. and I also have a character problem. So if I type on my keyboard I get " i get instad >> in AbiWord. It's also annoying if I copiere something from the internet then it comes in with the font it had out on the web, but I often just want to have it converteret to the font I now use in my text document. So it was a great step forward for me to be able to spell check from Geany. It is more stable and better functioning of the work I do.
