    Unhappy Libre Writer spell check not working

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.04. For reasons which are unclear the spell check in my Libre Writer have stopped working. There is not automatic or manual spell check function in the program at all.

    I have totally un-installed then reinstalled the entire Libre Office Suiite as well as Libre Writer individually from the repository. These actions did not fix the problem.

    I have reported the bug but to date have no response. If anyone understands the problem, or better still, has a solution I love to know.

    Thanks in advance

    One possible reason for this is that the ABC button located at the centre of the standard toolbar is not depressed. This button is marked ABC and has a red squiggly line line below it. The red ABC button controls the auto spell checking features of Libre Office Writer.

    Have a look at this tutorial, it's almost the same: [Troubleshooting] Spell check in OOo 3.x.
