It sort of works with 1.4.2 which I built with


Shift+F7 activates the spell checker on a selected text box.

So, you need hunspell + hunspell-devel

My current problems is that selecting the spell checker gives me en_ZM
(I think) and changing it causes a crash (Fedora 17)

Also the first word is not selected for correction.

But it might work in french. 

I have to go back to, I think my SUSE installation where I had it
working afaik.
