My Evo spellchecker has stopped working. It was working fine. In the

I went into Evo's Edit -> Preferences in the main window toolbar, and

dictionaries have been installed. But I have multiple aspell
dictionaries installed-- including English, Spanish, Bengali, and

So why isn't the spellchecker working now in Evo?

Do you have gnome-spell?

Thank you. :) 
It must have gotten removed in the above described process I did. So
that is why the spell checker in Evo wasn't working. I just reinstalled
gnome-spell using Synaptic Package Manager, and now it is working fine

Actually, this gnome-spell is really something great-- it allows you to
activate the spellchecker for several languages at once. So if you're
writing a letter with parts in English, Spanish, and Japanese, you can
activate all three languages and that way you won't get any unnecessary
red underlining.

Is this capacity for multiple language spellchecking a property of Evo,
or of gnome-spell? I ask because the Gedit Text Editor uses Aspell and
does not have this capacity. I would like to be able to enable such a
capacity in Gedit, and I don't know whether to focus on Gedit, or on
Aspell. Does it sound like the limitation of one-language spell-checking
is due to Gedit, or to Aspell? Do Aspell and Gnome-spell differ in this
