This dictionary does not seem to support clitic pronoun properly, it does not contains many clitic pronouns, what should i do for handling such clitic pronouns.

Utilizo OO version 4.1.1 en Windows 7, habra algun update para que esta extension sea compatible con esa version? Gracias!

También tengo Windows 7. En primer instante, no funciono tan poco, pero después un "restart", esta funcionando muy bien

En windows 7 funciona bien, lo que si le faltan muchas palabras, pero lo basico esta.

Logre instalarlo muy bien, pero como isiste para que funcione? tambien tengo windows 7 pero el programa no quiere reconocer los errores al escribir. Podrias ayudarme?

I have tried for hours to get a Spanish dictionary to work, the program doesn't recognize it. Is it possible to get a Spanish dictionary extension that will actually work as recommended? This is important for many people.

es_ES.dic, line 20019:

es_ES.aff, lines 106 - 107 (the parts of SFX rule A that apply to "crear"):
SFX A r ción ar
SFX A r ciones ar

My Spanish isn't that great, but my sense is that SFX rule A does not apply to "crear". OK, yes, both "creación" and "creaciones" happen to be words, but they are not forms of "crear".

I would suggest removing SFX rule A from "crear", and adding a new .dic entry for "creación". SFX rule S (specifically, .aff line 2604) covers transforming "creación" into "creaciones".

So the new .dic entry would be:

I have installed it but it doesn't work, what should I do? I have also one of the French dictionaries and it works very good. How can I make the Spanish one work too?

In version 0.3.2 I have fixed the said bug. I hope there are less problems now.

The bug is in the file description.xml
at line 19... the word: "lingüíticos" the "í" character, is bad-encoded as ASCII
...but it has to be encoded in UTF-8.

If you unzip the .ocx (the .ocx it's like a .zip file)
fix the file "description.xml"
and zip again
... it works.

By the way, in the same file, it says that the version is 0.3.0 ...and not 0.3.1

Sorry to report that after trying 10 times to install this dictionary I gave it up and I had to install spanish for venezuela which set correctly at first time.
I run xp sp2 on a toshiba A100 mobile pc

I hope you fix it soon..Thanks and bye

The extension is for Windows, not Ubuntu. Sorry about that.

Hi I'm trying to install the dictionary in Ubuntu 9.04 and I'm getting an error message that says what it appears in the screenshot.

Any chance of getting help with this?
Thanks a million in advance

Having the same issue, will try another extension since this one hasn't been updated in a while.

I experienced the same problem on my computer running under Windows XP home edition. I clicked on OK in the error message, but it came back twice, and each time I clicked OK. And finally the spanish dictionary was installed !!!??? Strange ! My friend tried at the same time to instal the same dictionary on his laptop, running under Windows Vista, but he didn't succeed....!!!??? My friend is really anoyed, because he is studying spanish. Can anybody help ?

The same problem...

Yeah me too, and it's really annoying!
