I'm using Xubuntu 16.04. I can't use a Spanish spell checker in AucTeX. When I try changing it, I get the error shown below.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Open emacs
  2. Tools -> Spell checking -> Select Spanish dict
  3. Try to spell-check (M-$) and you get Error: The file "/usr/lib/aspell/castellano" can not be opened for reading

Any ideas?

As it turns out, in Ubuntu you need to install the dictionaries for aspell separately:

$ sudo apt-get install aspell-es
