Ubuntu – spell checking and TeXworks


When I use TeXworks there is no automatic spell checking.
If I go Edit -> Spelling, the only option I have is none

How can I enable spell checking?

Thanks for your help

There is a section of the TeXWorks manual in which there is the reference to a guide on how to use dictionaries.

The link it refers to is this, so you should place your personal dictionaries in the folder /usr/share/myspell/dicts.

One easy way to add them is to install them. I suppose that if you use LibreOffice then they are installed by default. If not, you can simply install the packages named myspell-XX, where XX stands for your language.

You can easily find them with apt-get and auto-completion or via Synaptic.
