I recently upgraded my emacs to version 24.3.1 on ubuntu (I had a lower 24 version before). I first purged the old version and the installed the current version to get a clean update. Since, then cannot use ispell anymore.
First, I got an error message stating that there is not such function or program. I checked: ispell was installed. I then specified the path to ispell using
Then doing so, I got an error message that permission is denied. So I changed permission (chmod aou+wrx) for the file. Now I get the following error message:
ispell.el exited with code 2.
This happens whether I evoked ispell-region or ispell-word.
I also installed ispell by hand on my home site-lisp and loaded that fiel, with the same result.
Any suggestions about the meaning of the code would be helpful.
