    Evolution spell checking
    Contributed by Anonymous on Saturday, December 15 @ 23:57:39 GMT

    Evolution 1.0 (as available in sid) has the spell checking option in the mail composer permanently grayed out. Anyone know how to get this fundamental functionality working? Is it a matter of installing another package?

    Last time I check, evolution requires gnome-spell which is a bonobo glue around aspell IIRC. The packaged is not in Sid. You can try to build it yourself (you can take it from the gnome CVS).
