Subject Has anyone managed to get the spellchecking working
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2012 06:29:18 GMT

I am running Open Office 3 on Debian 6 ;

" 3.2.1
OOO320m19 (Build:9505)
ooo-build, Debian package 1:3.2.1-11+squeeze7

I have not been able to get the spellchecking working.

All of the switches are set, for the spell checking to work, and to 
"check spelling as you type", but, even if I manually try to get the 
spell checker to check a document, it simply tells me that it has 
completed, but it does not pick up any errors.

Has anyone managed to get the spellchecker working in Open Offioce 
writer 3.x, and, if so, what does it take, to get it to work?

I have even enabled the unknown (to me) dictionary of Attilla the Hun or 
whatever it is, that is the first dictionary listed, in addition to the 
standard dictionary, but every possible spelling is apparently allowed, 
and no spellchecking appears to occur.

Thank you in anticipation.
