spell checker
« on: August 18, 2013, 01:07:22 AM »
I am only using roundcube as webmail (absolutely love the interface!), which i access through the cpanel of my website. i do not see any options for using a spellchecker, yet i read on the forum that such a feature does exist. (forgive my total ignorance in this next statement but i have not "downloaded" roundcube to my computer because a. i do not understand fully the directions to do so - i do not know how to write  "codes" and b. i also do not understand what benefit downloading gives me when it is a webmail program.

any enlightenment regarding the latter and especially if i can use/enable the spellchecker when accessing through the web would be greatly aprpeciiated. ( see why i need the spell checker? :) -

thanks,

impwriter

You can enable it in your config file. Just do a search for enable_spellcheck in the main.inc.php. The googie search is busted as google has disabled there spell checker api.

Travis, Roundcube is not downloaded on my computer so there won't be any file there. I am using Roundcube as webmail only, accessing it through the cpanel of my website. i don't see any spellcheck options using it this way.

Then you need to request your administrators to enable this.

Travis, i contacted the administrator who said he would be happy to install it if i can point him to the correct module. where can i find it so as to facilitate its installation and not have his tech guys search all over the web for it?

(BTW if possible i would like the spellchecker to work with HTMl view and not only plain text)

thanks,

izzy

p.s. while i'm at it do you happen to know if there is also a feature that would allow attachments that i have upladed to send to be previewed before actually sent (and again, if so, where can it be found?)

Currently, the server running Roundcube needs to have aspell/pspell support. If the server is Linux, the packages you need are aspell, php-pspell and at least one dictionary, for example aspell-em for English.

I do not know how to install pspell on a Windows server, or if it is even available for that platform.

On my RHEL5 server, the exact packages I installed were:

aspell-0.60.3-12
php53-pspell-5.3.3-13.el5_9.1
aspell-en-6.0-3
