OpenOffice.org2 beta spelling


Anyone got the spellchecking to work?

I am getting nothing showing up in the available language modules under writing aids. The localisation files are installed.

Just wondering if its me, worked fine when I used the aliened RPM's from the official openoffice.org website, but switching to the files in debian have turned this off.

Fixed it.

After reading

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=320831

so just doing

ln -s /etc/openoffice/dictionary.lst /usr/share/myspell/dicts/dictionary.lst

got my spellcheing back.

I don;t have OOo1 installed as I can't see the reason fro having both installed to be honest as OOo2 is almost perfectly stable it seems.
