[Bug 509248] Re: [PPA] Thunderbird 3 Shows only English dictionary in Spell menu

This also affects me. I have the thunderbird-locale-en-gb and myspell-
en-gb packages installed. Thunderbird shows the language pack correctly
installed under 'Tools > Add-ons > Languages'. However, I am only able
to select the United States English dictionary when composing email.
Current package versions (Lucid):
This problem is caused by Thunderbird not correctly linking the myspell
dictionaries into '/usr/lib/thunderbird-3.0.4/dictionaries/'. I believe
there are two possible solutions to this problem:
1) Link Thunderbird's dictionaries directory to the myspell dictionaries directory. This is the solution currently used by Firefox:
'/usr/lib/thunderbird-3.0.4/dictionaries -> ../../share/myspell/dicts'
c.f. '/usr/lib/firefox-3.6.3/dictionaries -> ../../share/myspell/dicts'.
2) Link the individual dictionaries at the thunderbird-locale level. This would probably entail making the locale package dependant on the appropriate myspell dictionary pack, e.g.:
'/usr/lib/thunderbird-3.0.4/dictionaries/en-GB.dic -> ../../../share/myspell/dicts/en-GB.dic'
'/usr/lib/thunderbird-3.0.4/dictionaries/en-GB.aff -> ../../../share/myspell/dicts/en-GB.aff'.
