These are different things:

- "Tools" - "Options" - "Language Settings" - "Languages" - "Language of" -
"User interface": in this list box, you will see all "language(s) used for the
user interface, for example menus, dialogs, help files. You must have installed
at least one additional language pack or a multi-language version of
The "Default" entry selects the language of the user interface for the
operating system. If this language is not available in the
installation, the language of the installation is the default
language." [For the Help - press F1]
This means you have installed additional language packs at least for two of the
three locales in this listbox.
This list box has nothing to do with the Spell checker, it sets only the user
interface (menus, dialogs, help files).

You can check if the Spell checker is working in the same Options dialogs, but
under "Language Settings" - "Writing Aids". On "Available language modules" you
should see "Hunspell SpellChecker" *only* if you have at least one dictionary

You don't have any dictionary extension listed on the extension Manager, so you
don't have SpellChecker.

This is rather strange, because the default install set downloaded from the web site only comes with a language for the user interface (you
have three in the listbox), and a respective dictionary (you have none).

What version of OOo are you using? Did you download it from the OOo web site?
