I write in several languages, and I use various technical terms and shortenings in all of them. I’m also a total grammar nazi, so I don’t need a spellchecker. As a result I disable it everywhere, and indeed I have done so in Chrome and Firefox, but I keep getting red underlines in all text forms.
I can’t find a way to stop it. I’ve searched the options menu for what I assumed was a system-wide spell checker, but I haven’t been able to find a relevant option, not even by entering “spell” in the search fields. In desperation I even uninstalled aspell, hunspell, gtkspell and a couple other related packages from my system, and even that did nothing.
Ideally I’d want the spellchecker the hell off my system, but I’ll settle for just stopping it if necessary - but how do I do that?
Here’s a neat example, taken while writing this very post: http://i.imgur.com/fCyxrcD.png
And before you ask - yes, I’m absolutely positive I’ve disabled Chrome’s own spell checker.
I’ll add that it doesn’t seem to be running on non-web applications; for instance, gedit and libreoffice are unaffected. Firefox and Opera are, though, and again I’m absolutely sure their own spell checkers are disabled.
