Missing spell check settings, missing languages

  • [Reposting from the Linux subforum since I did not receive any replies there and I don't know whether any of these issues are platform specific. Feel free to delete if this is not appropriate.]

    Spell checking seems to be broken in Vivaldi. I'm on Kubuntu 17.04, Vivaldi 1.9.818.22, interface language Nynorsk. What is weird is that this is a new installation and I remember this working fine before. I've seen older bug reports regarding spell checking both for Vivaldi and Chrome, so I would like to know what the expected behaviour is at present.

    • When I right click on a 'misspelled' word, I get no option to switch or add languages.
    • The language menu isn't accessible through the settings. Instead, I have to go to vivaldi://settings/search#språk . (Note that entering 'språk' in the search bar of the settings doesn't give the same result.)
    • In the language menu, it says spell checking isn't available for Nynorsk
    • The dropdown menu only has a limited number of languages. Bokmål and Dutch are missing.

    The dictionaries are not provided by Vivaldi, nor Chrome. They are Hunspell OpenSource dictionaries.

    There seems to a single dictionary for Nynorsk and Bokmál.

  • @Pesala Then why isn't it showing up?

    @oulenz I don't know which dialogue your screen shot is showing, but I had no problem adding a dictionary for Norwegian Bákmal.

  • @Pesala Like I wrote, I'm showing the 'Add language' dialog in the language menu, accessed by visiting "vivaldi://settings/search#language". I'm assuming so are you.
