Someone else had this issue-- it had to do with their PATH.  If you
change the command to be an absolute path-- they will work.  The other
person upgraded from Xandros for what it is worth.

apt-get install gnome-icon-theme

Then go under the Theme manager and click Details and choose the Gnome

What version of evolution are you using?  If 1.0.5 (from woody),
downgrade the gnome-spell to the one in woody.  If you are using the
backported 1.2.2, upgrade to gnome-spell in the backport.
