I was thinking more about this part,

        After the dictionaries are installed you can use the main one
        (id) by
        setting the LANG environmental variable to id or running Aspell
        with "--lang=id".  You may also chose the dictionary directly
        with the "-d" or "--master" option of Aspell.  You can chose
        from any of
        the following dictionaries:
          id (indonesian)
        Whereas the names in parentheses are alternate names for the
        dictionary preceding the parentheses.

Here is what I got:

~$ aspell -d
Error: You must specify a parameter for "-d".
~$ aspell --master
Error: You must specify a parameter for "--master".
~$ aspell -d id
Error: You must specify an action
~$ aspell --lang=id
Error: You must specify an action

I just want to be able to use the "id" dictionary, not to set it as default.
