I have installed hunspell in $HOME (with ./configure --prefix=$HOME) and try to use it with alpine (previously known as pine). I have set alpine to invoke it like this:
$HOME/bin/hunspell -d $HOME/usr/lib/hunspell/sv_SE --dont-backup --mode=email-check
but when trying to spell in alpine nothing happens. However, if I use this in the terminal (this is on Debian, uname -a = Linux triton 2.6.18-6-amd64 #1 SMP Tue May 5 08:01:28 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux) I get a prompt where I can enter word with hunspell returning with sensible answers.
Any ideas what the problem with/in alpine is?
