Hexchat is an IRC client based on XChat. Here are some hints about its configuration and use.
Enable Spell Checking
hunspell-en_US(these are minimum requirements).
- Installed hunspell dictionaries for your desired languages.
Hexchat uses the Enchant library to provide spell checking. The default installation in Void Linux expects the dictionaries in /usr/share/enchant/myspell (for the hunspell/myspell provider) so there are two options for working around this issue.
- Copy the dictionaries in this directory, first creating if it it doesn't already exist.
- Create a symlink
# ln -s /usr/share/hunspell /usr/share/enchant/myspell
- Restart Hexchat
- Navigate to
Settings ‣ Preferences ‣ Interface ‣ Input boxand check 'Spell Checking' item and set the Dictionaries language codes in the box so you can enjoy spell checking in Hexchat.
