I have installed LibreOffice RC1 (US) with language packs UK, FR. When I
check to see if spelling is activated on the language packs that have
been downloaded, there is no check marks showing next to these
languages. I thought that this was usually the way to add specific
language dictionaries. Spellcheck does not seem to work in any language.

Am I doing something wrong?


As I understand it a Language Pack is designed to change the language of the UI - menus, Help text etc. Language Packs have nothing to do with spell checking or with the language(s) in which you write your documents. You need Dictionaries which come in the form of "extensions".

I cannot find (Google) a web site for LibreOffice extensions so I suppose you need to use the OpenOffice ones. Please, someone tell me I'm wrong about this :-(
