Re: [Evolution] CVS GtkHTML + spell checking

In case anyone else needed to know this.... If you are using CVS HEAD
for compiling evolution and gtkhtml, you need to compile the CVS
evolution-1-1 branch of gnome-spell.  (Thanks to Radek at Ximian for
pointing this out).

NOTE: This may not work for you if you use a lot of gnome apps that
depend on gnome-spell.  I don't, so I don't know the impact to a "full"
gnome desktop user.

Anyway, it's nice? to have all those red squiggly lines all over my
emails again. ;)

    Until not long ago, spell checking in Evolution worked fine.  It no

    click on the "Configure spell checking" I get a box that says "Cannot
    execute GNOME Spell control applet, Try to install GNOME Spell if you
    don't have it installed".  In the terminal that I used to start gnomecc,
    I see: "Gnome-Message: gnome_execute_async_with_env_fds: returning -1". 
    I have gnome-spell installed (0.4.1), and it works for other gnome
    apps.  Any ideas?
    all Mandrake cooker packages except for soup, gal, gtkhtml, and
    evolution which are CVS HEAD.
    Now that I think about it, I think it was after the gtkhtml became "1.1"
    that the problem started.  Do I need to compile gnome-spell from CVS?  I
    don't want to break my other apps.
    Any pointers would be real helpful, especially if someone knows some
    common causes for the "Gnome-Message" failure.
