Using LO 3.5.6 on Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit, I did not have any problems installing 3.5.6 over 3.5.5. I did not get any dictionary issues for the default 64-bit DEB installs.

I am using:
     Build ID: e0fbe70-5879838-a0745b0-0cd1158-638b327

This was copied from the "Help" splash.

I use "sudo dpkg -i *.deb" for my install method.

I have not switched to 3.5.6, yet, on my 12.04/MATE system. That is my dual booting laptop and rarely use it for LO work.

There have been some people who have issues with the default dictionaries. Some have not worked, and now you have install issues. It seems that there are just some systems that are just not having an easy time installing LO.

As for the NA-DVD dictionaries, well there are about 20 localized Spanish dictionaries there, so you can choose which country's version you need. The American English version is over 773,000 words in size, plus thesaurus.

I was wondering what would happen is I did not install any dictionaries during the installation [DEB and Windows], and then install the version of English, Spanish, and French ones I prefer. By the way, there are several French dictionaries to choose from.

Hi :)
All the various problems with dictionaries seem to have been solved when people switched to using 
the NS Dvd ones on the Extensions site.

I think fixing the existing dictionaries that get shipped with LO might be a lot more work than 
just swapping them out and replacing with the ones on the Extensions site.

For now, can the Dictionary Extension that are listed on the Extension
pages, or the NA-DVD dictionary pages, install correctly?  If so, you
will still have the chosen dictionaries till the fix is made.

Thanks, but I'd rather fix the existing problem(s) so that others don't
experience the same. I've just encountered the same issue with
Build ID: e0fbe70-5879838-a0745b0-0cd1158-638b327
so it might be time to post on the developers list - the dpkg system
breakage is quite serious IMO.
