Dictionary and Formula Symbols in OpenOffice-debian...


Hi.

I have openoffice (the 'apt-get' one) installed on my debian machine but I have two major problems.[list=1][*]I have both English and Greek dictionaries installed via apt-get but only English is showing in OOo.
I go in Tools>Options>Language Settings>Languages and set them all to Greek but it doesn't seem to find the dictionary. (the English one is shown in the language list and is working)[*]When I write a formula most of the symbols (such as +) are replaced by squares while others show up properly. (I mean the "Insert>Object>Formula" one)[/list=1]

PS1. Everything else works fine.
PS2. As for the second problem I don't think it has anything to do with the fonts (see PS3)
PS3. I have installed the original OOo version (the one downloaded from www.openoffice.org) and both problems don't appear there.

I solved my first problem by running "/usr/lib/openoffice/share/dict/ooo/DicOOo.sxw" (as root for systemwide installation) and following the onscreen instructions.
Very easy. If I had only found it sooner...

But I can't find out what to do with the second problem! I can't even find anything anywhere
