How to install italian spellchecker dictionary for lyx

Lyx uses hunspell to spellcheck, so you have to install hunspell italian dictionary.
To do this download the zip file from http://hunspell.sourceforge.net/ in the dictionaries section. Inside the zip file you will find the files it_IT.aff and it_IT.dic: copy that files into /usr/share/hunspell/

if not activate checkspelling in lyx (choose enchant as spellchecker engine in tools->preferences->language settings->spellchecker)
it is also useful to check "spellcheck continuously" which means that every word is checked as soon as it's written.

that's all
