Spell Check

Downloads:  964
Submitted:  Nov 29 2008
Updated:  May 1 2009


Simple plasmoid for fast spell checking. Click on icon to check spelling of clipboard contents or write some text in text edit.
Developed and tested on KDE 4.1.2 (Mandriva 2009) and KDE 4.2.1 (Mandriva 2009.1 RC).
It's part of kdeplasma-addons since KDE 4.4.

- checking clipboard contents directly after clicking on icon or activating keyboard shortcut;
- possibility to drag file on icon to check spelling of contents;
- button for fast copying of text to clipboard;
- button to start spell checking with correction suggestions;
- combo box to select language.

If you have found bugs or have suggestions you can contact me via email, message or using comments, before you will vote bad.
And remember that not everybody has enough time for fast replying. ;-)


2.0 (01.05.2009):
- moved to KTextEdit:
-- better consistency with rest of KDE;
-- support for ignoring and adding words to dictionary;
-- much simplified and more reliable code;
- now to check spelling of file you need to drop it on applet icon;
- fixed drag and drop of text;
- some other fixes.

1.2 (06.04.2009):
- possibility to drag file on text edit to check spelling of contents;
- added translations support;
- added Polish translation by me;
- added install.sh script;
- other small changes.

Working fine with the KDE 4.2 (beta-1).

Tuning a bit:

icon.h -> iconwidget.h
Icon -> IconWidget

at plasma-spellcheck.cpp/plasma-spellcheck.h

I just wanted to let you know that this plasmoid has just been uploaded to the (K)Ubuntu repositories. It will show up in the Jaunty repositories once an Archive Admin approves it. Thanks for your hard work on this plasmoid.

Version 1.0 has been uploaded to the (K)Ubuntu repositories. Please note that the package has been renamed to plasma-widget-spellcheck. However, there is currently a dummy transitional package called plasmoid-spellcheck, which should ensure a clean upgrade path.

A KDE3.5 applet called kisa which hooks the keyboard and is a "live" spelling checker, popping up errors/suggestions. This was useful. However most textual application have spell-check built in but kisa sat nicely on those that did not or for which it did not work well.

It did not work in Hebrew (RTL) at all.

I have already enquired about a dataengine to sit on the keyboard (and mouse)--very limited at present. However, I feel this is the way to go.

I never heard about this application before (this plasmoid is not intended to replace it), but I see that it is already using Qt4 (http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=67220).
The big problem could be that it wasn't updated for long time...

 Bug on removal of applet

 by bram85 on: Feb 15 2009
Score 50%

I put this applet on the desktop (I know, it's not its intention) and opened it. But then, you're allowed to delete the button, while the text edit remains on screen. There is no way to remove it again and it makes Plasma crash if you do some operations.

Thanks for report. :-)
I'll fix this bug soon, however removing of opened applet is very untypical. ;-)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
