LibreOffice en_GB?


Silly question but I cannot find the en_GB language pack for Libre Office.

Is this the "Standard" English Pack in LO (With en_US being an extension) or is it simply missing?

This is holding me back from switching over to LO as It is somewhat disconcerting having tonnes of red lines for words spelled correctly.

You have to download the mass of rpms, then convert them with rpm2tgz, then install them, or you can make them into a single package by using the ROOT= modifier of installpkg, then use makepkg to create a single package. I did this 3 months ago, so the details are a little hazy.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...883/page3.html I appears that I put the details up here so that I would remember. That is most unlike me.

Alien Bob has a slackbuild for 3.3.0.4 on his website. From that you can build libreoffice with any of about a dozen languages. You need a ton of memory to build it

I should have said disk space as well as memory. To build all languages takes somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 to 30GB free on disk

I will admit that I trust Alienbob enough to just download his package for libreoffice, compiling this monster on my crappy laptop would be a little painful I suspect. BTW I see en_GB in there. Thanks Eric for all the hard work
