I have tried, but it doesn't work, I can't install any language deb file.

I have Ubuntu Natty Alpha2, I have updated it and I have LibreOffice 3 (Build 8) installed. The language packs I download from site are somehow uncompatible..
I give up.

I think it would be better if the release included the language libraries. It would be easier to download 200 mb more than spending time trying to fix like this.

In your original message you say you did apt-get install, so I imagine you are installing from some repository or PPA. It seems LibreOffice will be default on Natty but, as it is alpha I wonder what version you installed and if the language packs have made it in the repos. I'm sure they'll all be there by release.

Meanwhile, I also use two languages (English and Italian) and I think the best way is to use the debs provided on the website as suggested by webmaster for Kracked Press Productions. Install the US deb and then the language pack(s) of interest.

Hi , I installed LibreOffice on my ubuntu pc with the following command:

apt-get install libreoffice

Now, under Tools->Options->Language Settings->Languages menu, there is only one Language available.

User Interface : Default English (USA)

How can I install/choose another language?

Thank you.

Download and install the language and help packs for those languages.
You can go to's  download page and use the
 "Other way to download LibreOffice, the productivity suite" option.
Click on you .deb type - I use 64-bit Ubuntu so it is Linux x64 (deb)
Click on the "Languagepacks" and you will get the full list of the languages
you can install.  There are 113 localized languages.

You can use the "boxed" option above that, but my way you can click on every language in a group - Alt right-click - and not need to go through any more steps
that that.

Once you download the language packs you want, you will need to install the deb files in order [?] like you would need to do if you used the *sudo dpkg -i *.deb* command[s]
for each folder of deb files.

When you use Windows version you can choose multi-language that has included for your choice in "custom install" a limited amount of languages that is "felt" to be the more used ones. Or, you can use the Windows all-languages install and have the entire
list of languages to choose from, so it is a larger set of files.
