You can close this bug, because isn't really a bug.

The problem here is different from what it seems. Beside the message you get displayed in the message window you should also see something like this at the prompt:

2009-12-05 21:44:24.201 Ink[5673] Language: Spanish
2009-12-05 21:44:24.202 Ink[5673] Service to start: (nil)
2009-12-05 21:44:24.203 Ink[5673] Port: (nil)
2009-12-05 21:44:31.071 Ink[5673] Failed to get the spellserver

This tells you that there isn't any spell checker service installed for the language you are requesting.

The spell checker in GNUstep works via a separate service application. An example for this is provided in gui/Tools/GSspell.m
This service states in the GSspellInfo.plist that it only supports AmericanEnglish, which is actually true, when you check the code.

You could easily change this to any other language, but adding support for multiple languages will be harder.

On Ink.app I get the error

   Failed to contact spell checker for language 'Spanish'

But aspell (I assume that GNUstep use aspell) works perfectly on Lyx. I have GNUstep from SVN on Ubuntu 8.04.
