Do all applications use the same dictionary for spell checking? If not, which applications use which dictionaries in a typical desktop installation, or where can I find out?


Some apps are using a common dictionary (such as Evolution, which use aspell-* packages). Some apps are using their own dictionary, such as Libreoffice, which uses libreoffice-l10n-[language code] and language-support-writing-[language code] packages.

  • Where can I find out about applications besides those you've used as examples? – ændrük Apr 9 '13 at 13:16
