Hey,

I have tried to figure out that how I could add Finnish spellcheck for Evolution or generally to all text processing softwares in Fedora 25/26.

I found that "hunspell" most likely is the way to do it, but there is no Finnish as it so bizarre language... :)

Do I have options? Evolution says "The list of languages here reflects only the languages for which you have a dictionary installed"... on the list there is English.

Thank you from tips. :)

Installing the language packages would be worth a try:

dnf install aspell-fi autocorr-fi glibc-langpack-fi langpacks-fi

Further also consider:

enchant-voikko
libreoffice-voikko
libvoikko
libvoikko-devel
malaga-suomi-voikko
mozvoikko
python-libvoikko
tmispell-voikko
voikko-tools

which are special finish language libraries. If they work I don't know; I don't speak the language.
