Spell checking in LibreOffice
« on: December 16, 2017, 03:14:04 pm »
I ran across Peppermint recently and installed it in a VMware virtual machine running in Windows 10 Pro. I like it so far, but I've run into a perplexing situation. I can't get spell checking to work in LibreOffice Writer. I've assigned US English as my dictionary and my standard textbase. I also set up a VM running Ubunbtu and it works fine in that one. Seems odd because I've never run into this before.

I solved it. I deleted the entire English language pack and reinstalled it. Now it works.
