Hello.
I have been trying to get my spellcheck working in both Falkon browser and Discord. I have seen these https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1101948-highlight-spellcheck.html and https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1101426-highlight-.html postings but they do not say what it is I need to do, and if it does I have no idea what to do.
I have no idea where this command is suppossed to be made
Code:
qwebengine_convert_dict /path/to/hunspell/dict.dic /output/path/to/created.bdic
or what dirrectories that they are to go in, and if I am suppossed to make a symlink like was posted in the links. It is all to vague for me to understand what I am suppossed to do.
I would greatly appreciate the help so I can get my spellcheck working on my system.

Thank you. :)

For falkon, at least, I used:

Code:

mkdir /usr/share/qt5/qtwebengine_dictionaries
/usr/lib64/qt5/bin/qwebengine_convert_dict /usr/share/hunspell/en_US.dic /usr/share/qt5/qtwebengine_dictionaries/en_US.bdic


Falkon explicitly doesn't let you specify dictionary locations - so I just made the directory it searches in (because it didn't exist).
I don't know about discord, sorry.

Thank you for replying. I am not sure what the part is that is after the mkdir part.
I had every thing there except the
Code:
/usr/share/qt5/qtwebengine_dictionaries/en_US.bdic
Where do I get the en_US.bdic from, do I just touch the en_US.bdic or do I need to copy it from somewhere?
Thanks.

I got it!!
Thank you for sharing with me.
What I needed to do was use
Code:
sudo qwebengine_convert_dict /usr/share/hunspell/en_US.dic /usr/share/qt5/qtwebengine_dictionaries/en_US.bdic

After I did that I got the option in falkon for the spell check. That was the part that I could figure out before.
Thanks again for your help!!
