Upgrade from 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS on two computer running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. One is a System 76 the other is an Apple min mac.
In all application that have spell check turned on, LibreOffice, several IDEs the spell checker lost, forgot all the words I have add in to the spell checker over the last couple of years.
I think the problem is at the O. S. since all the applications broke on the upgrade to 14.04 LTS on both computers at the same time.
I tried checking askubuntu, Google and Duck Duck Go.
What Would like to Know is:
What is the name of the primary spell checking tool used in Ubuntu? So I can check the documentation and know the file names.
Where does Ubuntu keep the user “Dictionary”?
Is their a default place Where Ubuntu moves files to during an upgrade?
I hope the Upgrade from 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS moved the default location user “Dictionary” and saved the old “Dictionary” somewhere.
Reply to Aibara Iduas,
when the computers where 12.04 LTS their appeared to be a single dictionary for all the programs. The spell check just worked in all applications.
After I upgraded to 14.04 LTS, the dictionaries appeared to have been reset to zero added words. I lost all the added in words everywhere.

I do not think the problem is a bug because near as I can tell no one else had the same or similar problem with the upgrade. I more than likely screwed up the upgrade by forgetting to pass in a parameter and or messed up an answer during the upgrade.
The Upgrade to 14.04 LTS caused other problems, Getting the busy computer “spinner” a lot more than before, plus a few other problems.
I decided to try to fix the spell checker first since I think that I might have a chance to save the old added words before trying to fix the other problems.
Reload all my words is a survivable problem but I like to avoid if possible.
Thank you for your help, Mark
