I need some help with my Linux LO installation.

I'm running Linux Mint 15, and LO 4.0.5. I recently noticed that hyphenation doesn't work. I don't know if it ever did, so I can't say that it just recently stopped working.

My language settings tell me that I have spell check and thesaurus modules, but neither hyphenation nor grammar modules. My language setting is "English (USA)."

My "usr/share/hunspell" folder simply shows two files "en_US.dic" and "en_US.aff."

So, I then downloaded the more complete American English dictionary from the LO dictionary extension pages. (

My extension manager says it is installed, and the files, including a hyphenation dictionary, appear in the "users/extensions/tmp/extensions/lu3jpv1t.tmp_/kpp-american(etc)" folder, but...

LO doesn't seem to recognize the new dictionaries. Hyphenation still doesn't work, and my language settings under "Tools/Options/Language Settings/" haven't changed. I still have no hyphenation or grammar modules, and no options are available to recognize them.

Any ideas on how to get LO to recognize my new dictionaries?
