And you got package hunspell-pt_br installed (using sudo pacman --sync hunspell-pt_br)?

I have installed on my Manjaro system, which is (afaik) based on Arch, but I don't have an Arch system.

$user@system:  ~] pacman --query | grep hunspell-pt
hunspell-pt_br 3.2-5.0

Read this tutorial. In particular, did you install a relevant extension (if you did, no need to bother about the Hunspell package)?

you need to install package hunspell-pt-br using sudo pacman --sync hunspell-pt-br

See also:

  • My comment above and watch the difference of _ (underscore) in package name hunspell-pt_br of Manjaro and - (minus) in Arch package name hunspell-pt-br.

  • Package Details: hunspell-pt-br 3.2-5

Hope that fixes your isue.
