Using US english dictionary spell checker misses misspelled words. I can
have a document with multiple confirmed spelling errors and LO doesn't seem
to find a single one of them when I run spell check after the fact (for
example, an imported or "cut and paste" document). It does seem to work fine
in spell as you type mode, however.

What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you not understand?

I've looked around some, but I'm getting mixed messages. I currently
have LibreOffice 3.3.0 OOO330m19 (Build:6) installed on my computer, but
would like to go with PPA.

Here's one advisor's advice:

sudo apt-get purge libreoffice*.*
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libreoffice

My current install was done with apt-get:

sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/en-US/DEBS/*.deb
sudo dpkg -i


No. Your current install was done with dpkg and has nothing to do with

Easiest way for you to purge (if that's what you'd like to do) is to use
Synaptic: System|Administration|Synaptic...|Search for libreoffice,
click the topmost left column header (S) and select all the libreoffice
packages & select 'Mark for complete removal'. Warning; that will remove
all LO configuration files as well; if you'd prefer to keep the config
files just select 'Mark for Removal'.

What should I do to switch over to PPA install/updating. I'm on Ubuntu
10.04/Gnome, BTW.

Be aware that using the PPA will remove/conflict with your current
(U)OOo install/packages. If you really wish to do this (and given your
initial post & your understanding of package management I very much
recommend that you don't), go to:

and follow the instructions to add the PPA. Then update your repository
(Synaptic|Reload will do it) and install LO.

If you have questions on doing that, and I suspect you will, then I'd
(again) recommend against installing the PPA. But if you still want to,
post back and I'll be happy to walk you through each step.
