Salvete omnes! The source location for this package has changed, meaning that the line must be updated to:


Hope this helps someone out!

Your corrections were included. Thank you.

Strictly speaking it is pulled out from the add-on plus all English dictionaries are using release date as version number, so it is a matter of what is considered more convenient.

Strictly speaking:

20130331 is version of the LibreOffice add-on

3.1 is version of the Latin dictionary

Below is my variant of the PKGBUILD:

#  Maintainer: Archadept
#    Revision: 2013-10-18

pkgdesc='Latin dictionary for Hunspell'
optdepends=('hunspell:  the spell checking libraries and apps')

prepare() {
    # Hunspell ignores byte order mark (BOM sequence), see changelog of 2007-03-19:
    # However, some third-party applications can be affected. For example:

    # So, BOM should be removed:
    LC_ALL=C sed -i '1s/^\xEF\xBB\xBF//' "${srcdir}/la/universal/la.dic"
    LC_ALL=C sed -i '1s/^\xEF\xBB\xBF//' "${srcdir}/la/universal/la.aff"

package() {
    cd "${srcdir}/la/universal"

    # Hunspell dictionary
    install -Dm644 la.dic ${pkgdir}/usr/share/hunspell/la_LA.dic
    install -Dm644 la.aff ${pkgdir}/usr/share/hunspell/la_LA.aff

    # MySpell symlinks
    install -dm755 ${pkgdir}/usr/share/myspell/dicts
    pushd ${pkgdir}/usr/share/myspell/dicts
    for file in ${pkgdir}/usr/share/hunspell/*; do
        ln -sv /usr/share/hunspell/$(basename ${file}) .

    # Documentation
    install -Dm644 "${srcdir}/la/README_la.txt" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/${pkgname}/README_la.txt"

Files la.aff and la.dic are already encoded in UTF-8, no need to convert them. More over it breaks the mapping table in la.aff.

Universal spelling (subdir universal) combines classic and modern orthography, so can be considered to be more useful than default (at least for me).

The new source path is needed:


Everything else is working correct.
