    Leafpad and Aspell

    I know gedit and some other text editors come with a spell-checker.

    Aspell describes itself in Synaptic as a"spell-checker which can be used either as a standalone application or embedded in other programs".

    How can it be embedded in Leafpad?

    utu raised a similar question in October 2011 concerning ispell but got no reply.

    If you don't mind using the command-line, ispell is already in Knoppix 7.6.
    Give it a try.

    ispell for single words, aspell for file-checking.
    try aspell -c some.txt, for some.txt a text file in /home/knoppix.

    I know of those command lines where Aspell is used as a stand-alone. Rather unwieldy.

    In Windows, TinySpell can be used with applications which have no spell-checker such as Notepad or Wordpad.

    There seems to be no equivalent for Linux. Not a big problem anyway.

    It is an iteresting irony that both fies and Fies pass a single-word spell-check on ispell.
