LibreOffice Spell Checker not Functioning...? [solved]
« on: August 31, 2016, 01:27:24 pm »
Hi fellow pepperminters,   ;D

I have followed this tutorial http://askubuntu.com/questions/682170/why-doesnt-libre-office-writer-5-correctly-check-spelling (as my search throw up similar answers), and added one language. The only change noticed I was able to change English (USA) to English (UK) in the top menu. No icon as mentioned has appeared next to the Default language choice.

Closed LibreOffice and opened, no joy, then reboot computer, no joy. Tried to add Hunspell Spellchecker via LibreOffice extension but failed, no result found from their search bar. What is weird, Pluma autocheck spelling and spell checker function perfectly.   :o

After some research and reading my early screenshot more thoroughly and some modification to the bash scripts, Hunspell-en-gb is installed.

Code: [Select]
 sudo apt install hunspell-dictionary-en-gb hyphen-en-gb libreoffice-grammarcheck-en-gb libreoffice-help-en-gb

Posted new screenshots to show results https://sites.google.com/site/myonlinepixies/home/issues
