Is it possible for me to install and use Aspell so that I can have a spell checker with my htmlArea scripts? I’ve tried installing Aspell from the shell, but I’m not quite advanced enough to understand what’s going on. I ended up with an error and so now I’m stumped…
First thing I had to do (so says the Readme) was type:
./configure && make
I did so with the current directory being that which contained all the TAR extracted Aspell files (aspell-0.60.1.1) and a lot of stuff scrolled on screen, and I scanned the output making sure I didn’t see any error messages (none were found). I guess this compiles the software.
Next thing I think I had to do was type:
… to install Aspell. I ended up with an error message as follows (I’m posting as much as I could determine to be relavent):
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -laspell
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
libtool: install: error: relink `libpspell.la’ with the above command before installing it
I’m not quite enough of a geek to figure this out. Any ideas?
