Thanks.  Very fully.

I'm going cut a lot but that's just because it shows things that look
OK.

Does this file exist?

Check that the look system command exists and runs in your machine.  (I
mean in a terminal.)

My emacs is configured to use aspell (and ispell replacelemt), but the
key thing is, does ispell (as a command in a terminal) run on your
system?  I suspect not.

[My emacs has a full path here: /usr/bin/aspell.  I doubt that's
important, but if you do have a spell command installed, try putting the
full path here.]
