TB1.5: Dictionaries =?windows-1252?Q?won=92t_install?=

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Hendrik Maryns, Jan 12, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    I just installed 1.5, no problem, although it seems to have made itself
    a new profile.

    Anyway, I can’t seem to install additional dictionaries. If I drop them
    on the extension manager, it says they are installed fine, but they do
    not appear in the spelling options.

    Is this a bug?

    H.

    open up the speller, and click on the drop down list and they should
    be listed there.

    Well, installing a new profile isn't supposed to be on the agenda, it
    should pick up the old one.

    Open Profile Manager and see if you have mroe then one profile listed.

    If you have a panel icon fo start TB, right click on it and select
    properties. Add (space)-profilemanager to the command line. Depending on
    where you isntalled TB, ot wourl look something liker this:

    /usr/lib/mozilla-thunderbird/mozilla-thunderbird-bin -profilemanager

    You can also do it from a terminal of course. Does Profile Manager show
    two profiles? If so, try startng in the old one.

    You know, I've never actually installed another dictionary. You get to
    the installation page a Mozdev through Download More from the languages
    dropdown, but if you check here:

    http://dictionaries.mozdev.org/installation.html

    The directions clearly indicate to install them as extensions in the
    extensions manager.

    Just to test, I downloaded en-ca.xpi and installed it. It seemed to
    install, but I'll have to restart TB to be sure.

    No go, it didn't install. This machine still has 1.0.7, so its
    evidently a longer standing problem.

    Sorry, I intended to close the above. and sent by error.

    Anyhow, my earlier test was 1.0.7 on Unbuntu. I just installed en-ca on
    1.5, OSX, with no problem. I don't know, but its not a consistent
    problem then.

    No it isn’t, as on my home pc, it works fine. Just on this one, it
    doesn’t. Strange.

    About the profiles: I know enough about that, I deleted the knew one, no
    probs there.

    Thanks anyway, H.

    I found it: it seems the dictionaries need to be installed as root.
    When I ran tb as root and installed the dictionaries there, they showed
    up in my own profile too.

    I will file a bug about this.
