About Emacs Spell Check Support


My approach for Emacs 27.2 under Windows 10

Under Windows, normally none of these are installed. Hence:

Various Sources for Hunspell Language Dictionaries

Various Emacs Settings in init.el

Approach under Debian 12 "Bookworm"

Also under Debian you need to tell Emacs in init.el to use Hunspell:

'(ispell-program-name "hunspell")

The reason is that ispell had been installed automatically in my case and aspell was installed as a dependency of Inkscape. The effect was that Emacs used aspell.
