I have found the immediate cause: the version of Scribus 1.4.6 in the
Fedora repositories does not include libhunspellplugin. I tried copying
the version of this file which was created when I compiled 1.5.3, but
1.4.6 could not load it. Now the question is what happened to this file
in Fedora 25?

version and spell checking is working as it should. What could be
wrong with my 1.4.6 version?

Greg, I think I will stay with 1.5.3 for the moment, as I may be able
to contribute comments to the development team, in return for the help
I have received with my problem.

Kind regards,
