Pidgin: Spell check not working

I've just installed this product for the first time (v2.6.5 ). Although in Preferences I have "highlight misspelled words" ticked it has no effect. How do I get the spell check to work?

It works but you are missing one major step

In order for the spell checker to work you need to install the Aspell binaries under its respective folder under PidginPortable.


To get the binaries you will need to download and install aspell on your PC and then copy the binaries usually found at "C:\Program Files\Aspell" and paste them under the aspell folder [x:\PortableApps\PidginPortable\App\aspell]
