Description:

KClipSpellApplet is a KDE Kicker applet that permits you to spellcheck any text you can put into the clipboard, which means you can spellcheck from any application, including non-KDE applications. To use, right-click on kicker panel and select Add -> Applet -> Clipboard Spellcheck. A spellcheck button appears in your kicker panel. Now highlight any text, press Ctrl-C to make sure it gets into the clipboard
and click the spellcheck button in the kicker panel. In a moment, the KSpell dialog should appear. Make corrections and click OK. The corrected text is back in the clipboard.

Note that if there are no spelling errors, the KSpell dialog will flash on the screen and disappear.

KClipSpellApplet is also available via KDE CVS in the kdenonbeta module.

I like the applet, but it causes kicker's CPU usage to balloon to 90% or more. I can start kicker and the CPU usage will be normal but once I spell-check with the applet it goes through the roof.

Your log doesn't show any errors (just warning), so I assume it built OK.

The applet not being available is probably an issue with the prefix. By default, it is installed to /usr/local/kde. Either rebuild with --prefix=/usr or --prefix=/usr/local,or set KDEDIRS environment variable in you profile to include /usr/local/kde.

It worked, it worked !!! it did !

--prefix=/usr/local/kde (I think but I also did /usr/local)

NOTE : xkill kicker then start it up again for to new applet to work.

You may notice that there are no spelling errors in this dialoge box !

I LIKE IT. What needs to be done in order to get it going with the KDE distribution ?

(Just a little note : I didn't see any splash when the spell-checking was done. A self-closing notification would be nice to help with that.)

I like this applet, but I think it would also be nice if it would automatically check the spelling of the clipboards contents. If it detects a miss spelled word the applet icon should flash or something, and the suggested changes could show up with a right click on the applet.

Just some thoughts.

Performance could be an issue for this. Perhaps as an option.

I sometimes copy content I don't nexeccarily need to spell-check.
