Just switched to pop os from arch based distributions and I’m having trouble adding spell checking dictionaries to evolution.
I have, as I have done in the past, installed the desired aspell-fr dictionary which appears to be installed without issue however, even after a reboot I can only see various options of English to choose from in Evolution.
I have tried on both laptop and desktop with same configuration and I have the same behaviour on both. I have tried re-reading the manual and googling but no obvious solutions.
it’s the problem, that it’s a Flatpak version. The Flatpak does not
read things from the host system, thus when you installed the
dictionary, it was not (and will not be) known to the Flatpak.
I think there is some trick to do it, by enabling/installing the
language support in the Flatpak (possibly for the org.gnome.Platform),
but I do not recall what precisely it was, I’m sorry.
