great help, command line is soo much faster and definite.
Got help on "Kbuntu users site" problems. Their suggestion, I load Tbird also that I load "aspell"
Got Tbird up and now can receive (Not Send yet - can't find "configure" in Tbird to try some changes) But "Terminal" couldn't find Ispel (alt F2 didn't work either)
Any suggestions Tbird. I will try the search commnad line for aspell. Peculiar Tbird spelcheck works ok - curiouser and c...
Attempt to fix by search and install:
Couldn't find package Aspell
cpm@cpm-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install aspell (lower case a)
Reading package lists... Done (looks better)
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
aspell is already the newest version. (dissapointment)
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Office still wont run spelcheck
Open office - Tools-Options-Path - No sign of aspell in the list and I can't see how to append it.
