I have Open Office and want to intall dictionaries. But when I use the feature to add dictionaries online, I am directed to LibreOffice which tells me that the page I am looking for does not exist.

Asked by John Cranwell on 2012-05-20

I ran Ubuntu 10.4 happily with Open Office and several dictionaries installed. I decided to upgrade to Ubuntu 12.4 but encountered major problems (I think to do with my video card, but that's another matter).
I had backed up my date, but thought simply to reload Ubuntu 10.4 from CD.
This installs OK, but OpenOffice comes with only English as standard.
When I try to add other dictionaries, I get directed to a Libre Office site which tells me the page I am looking for does not exist.

So, I would be grateful if someone can tell me:
a) How to get Open Office dictionaries for other languages;
or
b) How I can install Libre Office on Ubuntu 10.4 in a safe and tidy manner

John

Hi John,

you can found all dictionaries for your openoffice in this link: http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/en/dictionaries.
Search for your choice and install it. That's it.

Or you can install LibreOffice by running this command in terminal: sudo apt-get install libreoffice.

If this helps you solve your question, please mark it as solved.
Regards,
Miha
