Error, cannot load the system dictionnary


Hi Guys,

Since the last version of Atom, I receve this message when I’m starting atom :

"Cannot load the system dictionary for en_US. Checked the following paths for dictionary files:

C:\Users\Nicolas Missiaen\AppData\Local\atom\app-1.26.1\resources\app.asar.unpacked\node_modules\spellchecker\vendor\hunspell_dictionaries"

If you have an idea ?

Thanks !

Atom load with error alert


Similar problem here.

/System/Library/ does not have a folder named Spelling.
/Applications/.../app.asar/ is not a folder.
Could this be a bug?


Looks like this issue?


I don’t find any solution in this topic


That’s why it’s still open.

Hi All,
Try to install/add the language pack mentioned on the error to your os (LP related to the screenshot zh_CN is Chinese (PRC))
