View Full Version : Thesaurus-spellcheck problems

September 3rd, 2009, 07:06 AM
I still have no thesaurus or spell-checker for my OpenOffice 2.4.1, on Ubuntu 8.04. The procedure should be a simple one, something I've carried out on my desktop through several versions of Ubuntu. For instance, I have no problem with the thesaurus or spellcheck on 9.04.

However the netbook remix version does not seem to work. I've gne through the procedure several times, and still end up with the dictionaries (apparently) marked as present in the /Tools/options/language settings menu, but not actually functioning. The Thesaurus, for instance, is greyed out.

Does anyone have any suggestions about this?

Check that one: [Tutorial] Spell check and Language configuration (http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=74&t=67).

But the Ubuntu version may have changed some items. You can try the Sun version: [Ubuntu] Installing OOo on Debian and Co. (http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=68)
