I see posts on this topic but only on Windows systems so I am creating a new thread for Linux.
Description of the issue:
The spell check dictionary for English (United States) will not download in Brave for Linux (on Chrome OS). I am using a fresh Brave installation on a new device. The spell check dictionary did not dissappear, it just did not download in the first place. Under the “Use spell check for” in the “Languages” section, the error reads “spell check dictionary download failed.” and gives the option to click “Retry.” When I click “Retry”, I get the following error: “Please check with your network administrator to make sure that the firewall is not blocking downloads from Brave servers.” I am using a home network and am able to run Brave with the English (United States) spell check dictionary installed on a separate Mac and separate Linux machine without issues.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Follow steps to install brave for Linux: https://brave-browser.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing-brave.html#linux
- Run “sudo apt update” and “sudo apt upgrade” following install.
- Check to see if the English (United States) spell check dictionary has downloaded. It still has not for me.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
