Spell check not working

Hi,

I installed LO 3.4.3 (OOO340m1 Build 302) a few weeks ago and I've
just noticed that the spell check (both AutoSpellCheck and
Tools->Spelling and Grammar...) don't work.

For AutoSpellCheck, mispelled words are not underlined.

For Spelling and Grammar I just immediately get a message saying "The
spell check is complete".

I installed LibO_3.4.3_Win_x86_helppack_en-GB and I've re-run the
installer with the repair option but no improvement. (English (UK) is
my default language for documents).

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this isn't working?

I have had previous versions installed if that might be conflicting?

Running on Windows XP SP3.

Thanks,

Leon

Re: Spell check not working


Just for the sake of trying it to see if this helps;
Have you installed the Language Tool or Linguist extensions?  I use
these as my defaults.
[http://libreoffice-na.us/English/extensions.html]

I have these installed on an old Compaq Win XP system that I just
installed 3.4.3 on it.  [It did not have LO on it before.]  My test show
that when I clicked on the "spell check" icon, it opened the spell
checking system and worked fine for me.

This is the text listed with the extension on the link above.
[quote]
This award-winning extension is a valuable addition to spell checking in
multiple languages.  Java must be installed on the computer. For more
information, visit the English homepage www.languagetool.org.
[unquote]

So if the spell checking does not work.  Try this.  Also, save the
folder that includes the info on your profile for LO [somewhere else]
and then delete it.  Then open LO again.  That does some resetting.  If
the spell checker works then, that would mean your has a bad profile
file[s].  I know where it is for Ubuntu, but I could not find it in
Windows without a lot of time in the search.  Also, XP, Vista, and Win7
seem to have profiles in different places sometimes.  Some Windows user
may have the exact file/folder name and where it is located.

Re: Spell check not working


For what OS and what conditions does this "bug" happen?  I did not get
this when I downloaded/installed LO 3.4.3 yesterday on a "clean install"
Compaq Win XP system.  But I also add Language Tool and Linguist, plus
other default extension before I start using LO.  So that may help the
issue.

Re: Spell check not working

Hi,

please have a look at the bug report (only 91 comments) ... ;)

I think it's principally a Windows bug, especially Win7.
Registering/synchronizing the bundled dictionary extensions is broken,
the user profile (of a previous LibO installation) doesn't get the new
values of the upgraded LibO version.
Mostly *all* language modules are unavailable in 'Tools > Options >
Language Settings > Writing Aids...'.

I've tried a short (by that time still incomplete) summary (based on
WinXP) in comment #24.
With Win7 that seems to be worse.

Re: Spell check not working

I had this problem and fixed it after someone on this list directed me
to something like ">> spell checking not working in LBO 3.4.3
 >>
 >>
http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/spell-checking-not-working-in-LBO-3-4-3-tt3299202.html#a3302339".



       Specifically, I found "path:
...\LibreOffice\3\user\extensions\bundled"
("C:\Users\sgraves\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\3\user\extensions\bundled" in
my case).  I renamed "bundled" to "bundled.err".  Then I restarted
LibreOffice.  After that, I was able to get what I wanted with
LibreOffice Writer following the documentation to Tools -> Options ->
Langauge Settings" and Tools -> Language, ... .  It took some
experimentation, but I (mostly) got what I wanted.


       NOTE:  Windows (Vista and 7, at least) sometimes hides the
AppData folder, even when it seems to say it's not.  In Windows
Explorer, type C:\Users\yourUserID\AppData", and it should appear [with
"yourUserID" replaced by your user ID].


       Hope this helps.
       Spencer

Yes, you're quite correct it's
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37195.

I should have looked further.

In my case copying:
%PROGRAMFILES%\LibreOffice
3.4\share\prereg\bundled\registry\com.sun.star.comp.deployment.configuration.PackageRegistryBackend\configmgr.ini
to:
%APPDATA%\LibreOffice\3\user\extensions\bundled\registry\com.sun.star.comp.deployment.configuration.PackageRegistryBackend
did the trick (making a backup of the target before of course).

Thanks again,

Leon
