@petRUShka I see your point, and the best solution in my opinion would be to do as hunspell-en_GB does it: installing as en_GB-large, and then symlinking en_GB to the large dictionary.

But, that would interfere with hunspell-en and hunspell-en_US, which actually uses the same PKGBUILD-file as hunspell-en_GB.

I would also like to add that there is currently a bug opened, with the same issue you are describing, but for hunspell-en_GB. There seems to be a lot of common interest here, and a need for better package structuring.

Delving into this makes me think that the best solution for the Arch community would be for hunspell-en_US to use the large dictionary, just as hunspell-en_GB, and remove my package.

I belive it should be installed to /usr/share/hunspell/en_US.dic instead of /usr/share/hunspell/en_US-large.dic.


$ hunspell

Can't open affix or dictionary files for dictionary named "en_US".

$ LANG=en_US-large hunspell

Hunspell 1.6.2
