    Newbie / idiot question, I RTFMed and can't find an answer, hence posting here.

    I installed hunspell in Mac OS X.  This is what I get:

    haddock:hunspell-1.2.2 anand$ hunspell -d en_US
    Can't open affix or dictionary files.

    Any pointers to where I messed up would be helpful.

    HI: I'm an extreme newbie and I'm having the same problem but with the en_CA dictionary. I've got it downloaded, but I can't get it to work. I'm on a Mac OS 10.6.8, trying to install hunspell 1.3.2.  I think I've got it installed, but I can't get to work because it stalls with the same error message Anand got.  Can someone help? Yours, Simon
