LibreOffice - German Spellcheck

Hey guys!
I've just installed Debian 7.3 from the live CD and later installed myspell-de-de but LibreOffice won't recognize wrong spelled German words.

What packages should I install?

Three things are needed.
1. the dictionary
2. the spell-checker: hunspell
3. setting LibreOffice to use German as the default text language.

If LO just says "spell-checking complete" when it hasn't actually done anything, then you probably lack the actual spellchecker.

The instructions are for Libreoffice on Ubuntu, but should also work for Debian.

On further investigation at the Debian user forum, one user said that after installing myspell-de, it didn't work until he rebooted. It may work by restarting the x-server: ctrl-alt-backspace in a terminal, then log in (saves having to reboot).
