xfce4-dict spell checker freezing

Hi, I'm looking for configure my xfce4-dict to be fully functional but I'm stuck with the spell checker option.

I have aspell installed and I choose "en" as dictionary but when I write a word in the search field and I click on the "Find" button, the application freezes. I can only close the app, no other buttons work.

I'm on OpenBSD 7.1, XFCE 4.16 and xfce4-dict 0.8.4.

Tell me if you need more informations. Thanks by advance. : )

Re: xfce4-dict spell checker freezing

Hello and welcome.

Log files would be helpful. Not sure where openbsd logs xsession errors to, but have a look around to see if you can find anything. You can also try running xfce4-dict in verbose mode:

xfce4-dict -v

...but to get any output, make sure you don't have the panel plugin added to a panel - remove it first if you do.

Re: xfce4-dict spell checker freezing

So, this is the log from .xsession-errors :

** (xfce4-dict:72333): WARNING **: 13:40:09.086: failed to connecting to org.xfce.Dict, reason was: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.xfce.Dict was not provided by any .service files

Running xfce4-dict in verbose mode :

o-yama$ xfce4-dict -v

** (xfce4-dict:20586): WARNING **: 13:41:15.507: failed to connecting to org.xfce.Dict, reason was: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.xfce.Dict was not provided by any .service files

And a screenshot of the application freezing

[edit]Looks like it works backend but I don't see anything on the frontend.

Re: xfce4-dict spell checker freezing

I get the same messages. Is it possible that the output is in white font? Can you try another appearance theme and see if that makes a difference?

And can you also confirm that aspell works in a terminal:

aspell -a

...and type in some words to check. See if you get any output.

Edit: or:

aspell -a --lang=en_US

..assuming the US dictionary.

It very well could be, though it was originally described that no buttons are functional. I think the issue is more likely with aspell, so I concur with your inquiry.

remake, can you also check whether you have /usr/share/dict and containing files in place?


Remember to edit the subject of your topic to include the [SOLVED] tag once you're satisfied with the answers or have found a solution (in which case, don't forget to share it as well), so that other members of the community can quickly refer to it and save their time. Pretty please! tongue

Aspell works fine in terminal.

There are files in there :

o-yama$ ls /usr/share/dict/          
README      american    british     papers      propernames special     stop        web2        web2a       words
