When I open a file which starts flyspell, I get this:

,----[ *Messages* ]
| Starting new Ispell process [aspell::german8] ...
| Error enabling Flyspell mode:
| (Error: The file "/usr/lib/aspell/german" can not be opened for reading.)

My spelling-related config is:

,----[ .emacs ]
| ;;
| (eval-after-load "ispell"
|   '(add-to-list 'ispell-dictionary-alist
|                 '("german8"
|                    "[A-zA-ZäöüßÄÖÜ]" "[^a-zA-ZäöüßÄÖÜ]" "[']" t
|                   ("-C" "-d" "de_DE-neu.multi")
|                   "~latin1" iso-8859-1)))
| (autoload 'flyspell-mode "flyspell" "On-the-fly ispell." t)
| (setq flyspell-issue-welcome-flag nil)
| (setq flyspell-default-dictionary "german8")

Yes, there is no "/usr/lib/aspell/german". However, I was wondering,
why Emacs is looking for .../aspell/german and not

How can I fix this issue?

Thank you!

My system:
- Debian GNU/Linux stable (Wheezy)
- GNU Emacs 23.4.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.24.10) of
  2012-09-08 on trouble, modified by Debian

All in all, one of the most disturbing things today is the definitive
fact that the NSA, GCHQ, and many more government organizations are
massively terrorizing the freedom of us and the next generations.
