spell checker?

Hello:


       I've been unable to install spell checkers with LibreOffice under
Windows 7.


       Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Writing Aids" shows NO
available language modules.  "Tools -> Extension Manager" produced a
list of 43 available extensions.  I select one and click Add.  This
opens a window indicating it wants a file with extension .oxt, .uno.pkg,
or .zip, and I can't find any such that seems to fit.


       Suggestions?  This is under Windows 7 with LibreOffice 3.4.2 and
3.4.3.  I both cases, I installed the companion
LibO_3.4.2_Win_x86_helppack_en-US.exe /
LibO_3.4.3_Win_x86_helppack_en-US.exe.  ("Control Panel -> Programs and
Features" shows both LibreOffice 3.4 and LibreOffice 3.4 Help Pack
(English).


       Thanks.


       Spencer Graves

The Extension Manager shows the *installed/(added)* extensions.
You don't need to install the extensions once again.

A first workaround:
spell checking not working in LBO 3.4.3

The only things I get in that "language modules" is Hunspell - which is
part of Ubuntu
and the extras I install, like
http://libreoffice-na.us/English/add-ons-extensions/LanguageTool-1.2.oxt
plus the extras, like dictionaries, I installed after I installed the LO
package.

Until the LO extension system is finished, try installing some helpful
extensions from this page.
http://libreoffice-na.us/English/extensions.html

Language Tool, Writer's Tools, Writer Extras, Pagination, etc., are the
one I would start with.  You should see Language Tool in that "language
module" section.  Also, any grammar checkers installed should show up there.

This page
http://libreoffice-na.us/English/dictionary.html
has many dictionaries, thesauruses, and other similar writing aids.

For English, I would start with the one listed as:  "English Dictionary
- modified from the original version".  That has a both the dictionaries
and thesauruses for US English, plus some GB English.

As for the workaround in the "nabble" link, for Linux, I tend to delete
first the hidden folder of ".libreoffice" and see if that fixes the
problems.  When you restart LO, that folder will be recreated with all
your new defaults.  If that does not fix the problem, then I go deeper.  
It usually works for me.

Re: spell checker?

Hi :)
Renaming is better than deleting.  With deleting you lose everything and can't
copy back some chunks from your old folder so you have to re-do any
configurations and re-download all extensions, fonts and anything else you have
in galleries and so on.  

Regards from
Tom :)

Re: spell checker - add Spanish+French+German to English?

In reply to this post by krackedpress
       Thanks very much to Manfred Krause, "webmaster for Kracked
Press", and Tom Davies:  Removing (or renaming) ".../bundled" worked.


       Next question:  How can I add Spanish, French and German as
optional languages?  I used to be able to specify them for selections of
text;  now I don't see how.  "Tools -> Extension Manager" lists
"Dictionnaires francaise. 4.2.1", German and Spanish as available.  
However, I cannot find them with "Tools -> Languages" nor "Tools ->
Options -> Language Settings -> Writing Aids".


       Thanks again.
       Spencer
