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,

Thanks Joachim for the information.

I just hope that if users need to install dictionaries that they will be accessible to them through the "Tools -> Language -> Install dictionaries". This does NOT lead users to the dictionaries page. It leads them to the: site where there are NO dictionaries available except for a very few (2-3). The real download site for now is:


Perhaps I'm being naive or overly simplistic but why are extensions for LibreOffice to be found on an web site?
