It doesn't work on my copy of LO 3.3RC1 on my Mandriva 2010.1 boxes (all 
3). I downloaded the EN-UK and FR language packs but the dictionaries 
did not work.

I then downloaded the dictionaries from here: and 
loaded them through the extension manager. The loaded dictionaries now 
all work as they should.

Please distinguish:

* spelling check (sometimes + thesaurus):  e.g. dict-de_DE_*.oxt 

* grammar check (for many languages):    extension-languagetool package
                                         or LanguageTool_*.oxt

For systemwide installation please unpack the .oxt packages (= .zip)
into the directory:  /opt/libreoffice/share/extensions/

or do it with a simple script:

| #!/bin/bash
| INST=/opt/libreoffice/share/extensions/language-grammar-tool
| unzip LanguageTool*.oxt -d ${INST}

After all please logout and login (perhaps twice) and all should run.
I have tested it - it runs for me.

Have a nice day,

Joachim (Germany)
