Spellchecker on Linux?

Hi all,

There’s supposed to be a spellchecker in Obsidian now, but it doesn’t work for me. Has anyone else on Linux gotten it to work?

Obsidian 0.7.6
KDE neon 5.19 (Ubuntu Linux 18.04)

Have you enabled it in the settings? Settings > Editor > Spell check.



I didn’t know it was a per vault setting. It wasn’t switched on in the vault I wanted spellchecking for, it is was in the other. Duh!

Thank you.


I’m using Obsidian 0.13.9 on KDE Neon 5.23 / Ubuntu 20, have enabled Spell Check, and don’t see any sort of highlighting of misspelled words. Tried switching from Live preview mode to Source mode, but no change.
