IT seems that the "breaking dictionary" is mostly a Windows thing, if what I read is correct.

It is to be that my KPP [Kracked Press Productions] dictionaries would work and not "break". As far as I understand, this issue is a somewhat hit or miss for people. You could have one system work fine but a different system, same make/model/OS/etc., will not work properly. Why it happens is the key to figure out a fix for it.

Sometimes I wonder if there is something in the "default" English dictionary is the issue. I took a "non-English" dictionary that was not working for someone and un-archive it and open the parts into a text editor, then re-archive it. Then the person who had the problems with the original one stated it worked fine now. So, there could be something that "creeps into" the file/install somehow, somewhere, that triggers something for only a few users.

I have never heard of the Spell checking "breaking" in the Ubuntu installs, but someone could have had it happen.

I did my best to make sure my KPP dictionaries worked as well as possible. I hope to update them one day. I lost some of my work during one of my sick weeks and a "ooops I deleted the wrong folder" issue. I had my 638,000 spelling word list over 700,000 words. I even had one that was over 1,000,000 words, with most of the new words being not-popular-but-valid-spelling words. I hope to get back to this in the near future. The American English largest list is 638,644 words, and the British list is 638,285 words.

Hi again,

So it's now version and the problem still exists. As well, I
installed the KPP dictionaries in the extension manager and had spell
checking for a while, and then their installation eventually "broke", too.
Unlike the default English dictionaries, however, I can promptly re-install
the KPP dictionaries and get my spell checker back, for a while anyway.

If someone could look into these magical breaking dictionary extensions,
well, you'd have no idea how grateful I'd be!

Thanks again,
