Open Office spellchecker just wont work!!
I am having problems gettint he OpenOffice spell checker to work. I turned on my linux box oneday, feeling like doing some work and what do you know, no spelling errrors are showing up. And its not as though I have a hundred percent accurate typing. I;d like to but... oh well.
I don't know if its because I am a n00bie or something else has gone wrong. My locale settings are set to English (Australia) and my default language for documents is also set to English (Australia).
Under the writing aids tab, the openoffice spell checker is enabled so I can't work out what the problem is.

I found that English(Australia) doesn't work, but English(US) does. But English(US) doesn't pick correct spelling like "colour" as an error.

Yes.. that would make a lot of sense seeing as the English (US) language setting has a spelling icon next to it....
I knew it would be somthing stupid like that....
