    Default Adding Arabic Dictionary to aspell

    Hi,

    I have read about adding new dictionaries to the aspell on the Zimbra Wikis, but they didn't mention any thing about Right-to-Left languages like Arabic and Hebrew.

    So I tried to add the Arabic dictionary (I downloaded it from gnu.org) and I followed the steps mentioned in the Wiki (http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?tit...ries_to_aspell)

    and then restarted the servers again but nothing changed, the English spell checker is still working and the Arabic didn't ....

    Does Zimbra support the these languages to be spell checked or not??
    if so,
    Is there a special configuration that I must do for the Arabic spell checker to work??


    Regards
    Hany

    Hi Hany,
    Can you post the files you changed when installing the dictionaries?
    Also, that wiki entry is only for western characters.

    Thanks
    john

    Here are the files in the file i downloaded from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/aspell/dict:


    ar.dat
    ar.cwl
    ar.multi
    ar_affix.dat
    ar_phonet.ISO.dat
    arabic.alias
    configure
    COPYING
    Copyright
    info
    l-ar.cmap
    l-ar.cset
    Makefile.pre
    README

    and I just followed the steps of installation I found in the wiki and didn't make any thing else (didn't replace any files ...).

    #./configure
    #make
    #make install

    and then replaced the value of $locale to "ar" in the file /opt/zimbra/httpd/htdocs/aspell.php to reference the new Arabic dictionary.


    So if you say that the wiki was just for western languages, is there a way for languages like Arabic or what??

    If there is a way to do so plz tell me.

    Regards
    Hany

    Sorry I forgot to tell you that before installing the dictionary I set Zimbra's aspell in the path with:

    PATH=/opt/zimbra/aspell-0.60.3/bin:$PATH

    this was also mentioned in the wiki.

    Regards
    Hany
