    Question LibreOffice Spelling and Grammar Not Working

    I'm new to Linux and Ubuntu (this is my second day), and my friend recommended using LibreOffice over OpenOffice since Oracle is garbage; his words, not mine. (: I used the terminal and entered:

    sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libreoffice
    sudo apt-get install libreoffice-gnome

    I noticed that the Spelling and Grammar check in LibreOffice Writer isn't working. It says spellcheck complete without finding any errors. I assume I need to install a dictionary add-on or something? Any help would be appreciated!
