Gedit plugin warning when opening from terminal

Every time I try to open gedit from terminal, I get a plugin warning:

gedit test.txt

** (gedit:3892): WARNING **: 12:37:59.339: Error loading plugin: libaspell.so.15: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I can only find other threads about this issue of people trying to open gedit with sudo. But these warnings appear even without sudo for me?

gedit opens fine and I can edit my files, but these warnings shouldn’t be there.

Any hints? Thanks!

Hello,

Are libvoikko nuspell hunspell hspell and aspell installed on your end? By default are not installed apparently, so that explains it …
Just make sure your system is updated and also you reboot it after the update.

sudo pacman-mirrors -f5 && sudo pacman -Syyu libvoikko hspell nuspell hunspell aspell

after that (if you also had a long list of updates)
systemctl reboot
and when you try again the gedit test.txt there should be no error.

Thank you, this worked!

FYI, those are optional packages for spell checking. Unless you speak Finnish, you’ll never need libvoikko. :wink:

I see, thanks. But then should there really be warnings every time you launch gedit? Seems a bit overly cautious to me for these edge cases.

It’s actually not directly related to gedit itself. libvoikko is an optional dependency of gspell which gedit depends on. Any application that depends on gspell will spit that out if libvoikko is not installed.
