I'm following THIS (http://drupal.txwikinger.me.uk/content/libreoffice-now-available-ppa-ubuntu-1010-and-1004) tutorial on how to remove OpenOffice and then install LibreOffice but I ran into a problem at the end of the article.

I'm on this part:

As explained in a comment below, in order to install the spellchecker the following line needs to be used (with adjustment of the locale (the example uses English-US):

sudo apt-get install aspell aspell-en dictionaries-common hunspell-en-us myspell-en-us

When I execute the last command I get an error and I know it's because it wants me to install another file but I'm not sure which one.


user@computer:~$ sudo apt-get install aspell aspell-en dictionaries-common hunspell-en-us myspell-en-us

What should I do?

Try using aptitude. It solves pacakge dependecy problems like this.


sudo aptitude install aspell aspell-en dictionaries-common hunspell-en-us myspell-en-us

Welcome to the forums :-)

It means you are using Maverick which doesn't come with aptitude by default. You need to install aptitude prior to using it for installation of other packages.

Search Software Center or Synaptic for 'aptitude' package, install it and then follow the above mentioned command.
