Technosaurus mentioned that SeaMonkey can now use Hunspell for spell checking, and so can Abiword via Enchant, so there is the possibility of getting rid of duplicate dictionaries.

I compiled Hunspell 1.2.10 and got an en-US dictionary from the Ubuntu repository. I then compiled Enchant 1.6.0 with ispell and myspell/hunspell plugins.

I compiled SeaMonkey 2.0.4 configured to use Hunspell.

It all works.

The '' that I created can easily be used as a template for any other language. They can be obtained from, search for packages starting with "hunspell".

Another good thing, this time I was able to compile SeaMonkey 2.0.4 so that email attachments work.

Looks wonderful
Is this HunSpell process, describe, available for install in my LiveCD Quirky? Is there a beta somewhere that has this combined? I like this update to SeaMonkey?

The next release of Quirky will have Hunspell and SeaMonkey 2.0.4.
