That was in February. Did this problem ever get solved? I really need spell check for Zim.

Perhaps this could be set as awaiting package update since the next version of zim will be ported to python3/gtk3 ?

EDIT: A small maintenance release was just published but it is not yet the big awaited update

JoshStrobl moved this task from Backlog to Improvement on the Software board.

Zim has been updated to 0.70 which now is GTK3 and Python3.

No specific action required :

  1. sudo eopkg it gtkspell3
  2. Zim -> Edit -> Preferences -> Plugins -> Spell checker (*)
  3. Press F7

(*) it requires either gtkspell3 or python-gtkspellcheck since we have the first, it's fine.
