Setting up SpellCheck in TeXmaker

As the official documentation suggests, you go to "Configure Texmaker" -> "Editor" -> "Spelling dictionary" and set up the location.

The default location on my Linux distribution was: /usr/share/myspell/en_GB.dic

As the wikipedia entry says:
MySpell was the former spell checker included with OOo Writer of the free office suite.
The current spell checker of choice for OpenOffice is Hunspell. We can configure TeXmaker to use this dictionary by pointing to the location: /usr/share/hunspell/en_US.dic

Note, you can try the command locate hunspell to figure out where the "dic" file rests on your installation.
