LyX Spellchecker in Ubuntu 11.10

After installing LyX in Ubuntu 11.10, the functionality of the spell checker on-the-fly is not activated yet. To enable the spellchecker active while you are writing and giving you underline word if it misspelled, you need the following settings:

a) From the menu Tools > Preferences
b) Under the Language Settings > Spellchecker
b) Enable Spellcheck continuously and select the spellchecker engine Enchant

c) Apply and save the changes to close the dialog. Now spellchecker is already active continuously.


  1. Not on my Lubuntu 11.10-- when I do that the Enchant disappears from the window, and no spell checking is available. Which dictionary should be loaded?
