Thanks, NoOp.  I decided to google on it, and discovered that I was
lacking a repository in my Synaptic.  Fixed that last night, and now
I have LioB installed.  Must just update it with the UK, Swedish and
Chinese dictionaries and stuff.
Please do not take this the "wrong" way. Would you let me know what dictionaries are installed with the UK and Swedish versions of the language packs. There should be only one for the UK but Swedish has a version for Finland as well. I found that one while I added my list of all the "known" dictionaries on the last three-quarters for the extension page for the North American DVD project.
I am wondering if the Swedish pack installs the thesaurus, spelling dictionary, and the Finland version. I found these as separate add ons and wonder if the spelling dictionary and thesaurus shows up separately in the Extension Manager.

I just got a "bug" in me about the dictionaries for LibreOffice. When I "tested" it on my Vista laptop [which I rarely use for "office suite work"] I used the "all language" version and installed 5 or more extra languages. It seemed that I got a dictionary for the entire language list in the custom install. Not just the languages I installed, but the whole list. I am glad that we get to choose language packs with Linux, but my Ubuntu desktop keeps giving a dependency error for a .deb that I have installed but it wants en-GB instead of the file name en-gb. So I cannot check out what Linux installs.

Since I now have LibO on the machine, albeit from the ppa, I'll see how I get on with that one.  
I'll test adding the UK, Swedish and Chinese language packs, and see if they find the original US 
version, and if, so, I'm happy.  I'm not in linux all that often nowadays.  If not, I'll unload and 
reload from the LibO site version as you and others have suggested.
