I am using LyX on Ubuntu 11.10 but the spell checker is greyed out.
I have tried to activate it using the Tools --> Preferences Menu. All that happens is the word "ENCHANT" appears, but it will not APPLY or SAVE.
All packages have been downloaded from the Ubuntu Repositories using the Software Centre. I have used LyX before with the spell checker on earlier releases. I expect that there is a simple solution, but I need someone to supply it. Thanks in advance!
