I don't think Ubuntu provides an aspell-id package either.

Anyway, I have made a horribly amateurish package of aspell-id. I don't
give any guarantees, but it seems to work for me.

OK, I'll give it a try. Any idea how to get rid of my install from source?

Not knowing any Indonesian I haven't really got any motivation to work
on this package and getting it into the official archives. Maybe you can
file a RFP (Request For Package) bug and hope somebody else will pick it
up? (Hint: use the reportbug package for this.)

Do you mean the "Report Bug Tool"?

I don't think this applies to Debian at all.

BTW, I have sent this question to
debian-user-indonesian@lists.debian.org I got in contact with someone
who will forward the question on to some other lists. I am just hoping
someone will understand my somewhat questionable Bahasa Indonesia ;-)
