[solved] libre office-spell check doesn't work for english

Hi,

I encountered yet another odd bug. In libre office, when I set language to check spellchecker works normally, but when I set language to english, it doesn't check anything.
When I click on check spelling, it only says "spell check completed" even though I know that I have mistakes in the document.

How should I investigate this issue. Did anybody come across anything like this?

Thanks for any help.

Why Linux? Because it doesn't hide anything from you. It puts you so closely in control of your machine that you can feel its heartbeat.

Do you have the English dictionary installed?

Well... I don't remeber doing that before. Nontheless, I tried this one http://extensions.libreoffice.org/exten … ctionaries , but it didn't help.
It did, however, display the spell-check icon before the English languages (although strangly enough not before the English(USA) one) so I believe I do indeed need a dictionary.

I tried to search for one on this website: http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center , but I failed at finding any good English(USA) dictionary. Can you recommend a standard English(USA) dictionary? Do you use one?

Installing English dictionary as an extension was bad idea.
All I needed was hunspell-en package.

Thanks slithery.
