Description:

As I have sometimes had to check spelling of a word or sentence outside of a text editor I had a look around for a GUI for aspell but surprisingly couldn't find one! So I wrote this simple front end for ASpell just launch it from the accessories menu and pase or type a word in the text box and either press 'Spell Check' to check and correct all words in the text box or select a single word and press 'Check Word' to just correct that one, that's all there is to it.

Development version is now available on Github:

I assume you was using make install DESTDIR=/tmp/.. to create a package which was why you got the error,should be fixed now, I have uploaded v0.0.4

Let me no if it doesn't work, but please email me direct as these forums aren't a good way of bug reporting, too awkward to use.

Keith,
Confirmed,
I got the same error as Red.
Arch Linux x86_64
Kernel: 3.11.6-1-ARCH
Opened a terminal and typed in aspellgui,
and there it was!
Nothing in /usr/share/applications, though
So, nothing in Xfce4-appfinder under accessories.
