So, I use Lyx for some of my academic papers, and I write some of them in German. Now, LibreOffice seems to have no trouble using the hunspell dictionaries (which are in the format de_DE_frami.dic/.aff, and found in /usr/share/hunspell).

However, Lyx, bless its little heart, despite that I set that same directory in the path, does not look there (or rather, does not find anything there), and defaults to Lyx's dictionary directory (/usr/share/lyx/dicts). In that directory are the following files:
Code:
# ls -l

You will notice that all of the non-symlinked files are to extended dictionary names. The ones that aren't all belong to myspell-2008. Those myspell dicts files are the only ones hunspell recognizes, despite that I just made two linked files for de_DE that are also the same short format. Still, Lyx/hunspell doesn't recognize them.

Any advice on why this is? One of the most annoying things ever is to have to ask my German colleagues to plod through my papers finding typos just because the spellchecker isn't working. Is there some setting for hunspell that I'm missing here? Is Lyx just wonky about using links?

Thanks for the help.

Seems like this bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=430468 .

Sadly I have no damn clue what the hell is happening. So feel free to report upstream and/or patch.
