Was your Mint-18 a new install, or an upgrade? Because my Mint-17

Upgrade from 17. So, I have Mint 18.1 on a laptop that was installed as

to be found in repos.
I think that's the problem, more below.
Try this command, but *watch out* and make sure it doesn't want to
remove more than you want it to!
sudo apt-get remove --purge python-gtkspell
I aborted. I get:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
I'm assuming, maybe incorrectly, the wild card will also remove
If I recall correctly the "*" means that it will purge config files,
which probably doesn't matter in this case, but better to be clean. Or
try it without the "--purge" and see what it says.
I'd say give it a try, I've seen Zim do a bunch of weird things when old
cruft is laying about. I've caused a bit of that myself, which is how I
know... I *know* "python-gtkspell" is both not in the Mint-18 repos and
not needed. I *suspect* that it (or similar leftovers) may be causing
If that doesn't fix it, it might be other cruft that was not removed in
the 17 to 18 update.
I might try something like:
sudo apt-get remove zim python-gtkspell python-gtkspellcheck aspell
ispell python-enchant enchant
What to see if it removes anything else for dependencies, and then add
those to the list below if you want them. Then:
sudo apt-get install zim python-gtkspellcheck aspell python-enchant
Mine works, too, except the interface being in Spanish, and it wants to
default to English instead of English (American). I have to scroll down
and click English (American) every time even though I have it set to
"en-US" in the plug-in.
If you don't care about the other languages, what about trying:
sudo apt-get remove hunspell-en-gb hunspell-en-za myspell-en-au
