Re: [Evolution] Changing the Spell Check color

When 1.4 was released, there was a bug in the spell checker that
wouldn't allow you to change the spell check color..  There were (I
believe) 2 ways to fix this.  First was to uncheck and recheck the
"check spelling" option and then change the color..  I'm not sure what
the other way was...

IIRC I had to change the value 2 times. The red color I still wanted to
use actually was set in the settings -- so I had to set it to another
value to force a change. Then I could set it back to red.

The extra step was necessary, cause when closing the settings dialog
with the same value as when starting it, nothing is written.

I'm running 1.4.5 on Redhat 9.0 and my spell check color seems to be
stuck as black.  This seems to disable spell checking (at least, there
are no black squiqqles anywhere ... even when I mispell a word ...)

If you don't have enabled spell checking while tying, you have to start
spell checking manually. Even with a black color you should see the

Check the settings. Are there languages enabled? Checking while typing?
Setting and resetting the color?

 Tools / Settings / Composer Preferences / Spell Checking

The relevant GConf keys for spell checking seem to be in /GNOME/Spell/.
Check, if they do match with the desired settings.

/GNOME/Spell/languages :  The enabled languages to check against.

/GNOME/Spell/spell_error_color_{red,green,blue} :  The RGB values of the
color to underline misspelled words, split into 3 keys. A value of FF
(hex) == 255 (dec) seems to be represented with 65535 as value. Please
don't ask me why...

btw: Do you use Gnome as Dektop? If you are using KDE, maybe a not
running Gnome Settings Daemon may be the culprit.
