Enable Spellcheck For KeepNote On Backtrack 5 R3

I take a lot of notes when working no matter if it is learning new stuff or working on projects for my job I have found that great note taking can save you lots of time down the road. The note taking application installed with Backtrack Linux is called KeepNote and provides the all of the functionality that I typically need when taking notes such as folders for organization, easy way(s) to backup notes, tabs, and all the other basics. One thing that does not work out of the box for KeepNote on Backtrack 5 R3 is Spellcheck which I use regularly to make sure my slang has not found itself into the notes I am sharing with others. Below we outline a quick way to enable spellcheck in KeepNote 0.7.7 on Backtrack 5 release 3.
