Hi there zerubbabel, you might want to try manually installing a spellcheck dictionary from the OpenOffice extensions page. I imagine that LibreOffice isn't configured yet to use the hunspell packages on Ubuntu.
Have a good one!
LibreOffice 4.3, openSUSE
If your spell check is not working and the Writing Aids sections is blank install libobasis3.1-ooolinguistic.deb
You're beautiful! Solution 2 worked and let me finally sort this out. Thanks so much!
After reading this forum, I installed
on my Ubuntu 10.10 machine.
The document which was open at that time showed auto spell check (red squigly underlines).
But other documents do not show this.
Please help. Thanks
