This is perplexing. I just installed on a new AMD system and for some reason, the spell check highlighting in pidgin isn't working at all. This worked fine on my old x86 machine using the exact same USE flags (including spell) and with the exact same configuration (with Preferences -> Conversations -> Highlight misspelled words checked).

Not sure what else to check...anyone else ever run into this? Sort of out of ideas on this one.

I'm revisiting this one...very annoying as I could really use this. Pidgin apparently uses gtkspell and I have app-text/gtkspell-2.0.16-r1 installed.

Any ideas on this one? I'm coming up totally empty.

EDIT: Got it! I needed to add the "aspell" USE flag to app-text/enchant. Marked as solved.
