    A Knoppix Leafpad Hunspell Challenge

    .
    In Knoppix 7.2, Firefox and LibreOffice both use Hunspell spell-checking.
    Examining Synaptics, my Knoppix uses a Hunspell-en-us dictionary, and a
    Hunspell shared library, but does not use a stand-alone Hunspell program.

    It is apparent that Firefox and LibreOffice in common access the Hunspell
    shared library and a Hunspell dictionary. It turns out a lot of other
    text-oriented software gets on this same bandwagon. See for example:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunspell

    It turns out Leafpad isn't on that list. I wish it were.

    I estimate the following resources might be useful to someone having
    the necessary programming skills to put Leafpad and Hunspell in touch
    with one another:
    http://qt-project.org/wiki/Spell-Checking-with-Hunspell
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/huns...Documentation/

    I think this would make a nice improvement in the Knoppix suite of
    programs.

    Any Volunteers?
