Setting up OpenOffice.org’s dictionary

Sometimes you have to write a document in OpenOffice.org and you want to correct it with the spellchecker, but when you click on  OOo-ABC button it doesn’t even work, not matter if you have set your document’s language to English from Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages,  as it’s shown here:

OOo-dictionary

This happens because you don’t have the dictionary installed on your system. In order to install it, just type

aptitude install myspell-en-us

Another language

If you want to add support for another language then just put the language code to “myspell-” word. For instance, in order to install the Spanish dictionary it would be:

aptitude install myspell-es
