How to fix missing spell checker in Libre Office 5.3.3.2

tools

#1

Some of you may have noticed the spell checker is not working in Libre Office 5.3.3.2 in UM 16.04 (and onwards I am assuming)

You can fix it with this command:

sudo apt-get install myspell-en-gb

Or, at least, it fixed it for me

Thanks, I wondered about the same!

They changed the default spell-check from hunspell to myspell or what happened here?

Thank you for posting, this suggestion is excellent and it works!

Thanks fixed the problem in 5.3.1.2 (latest version of LibreOffice for Kubuntu as of this post). Actually works rather than all the BS about uninstalling and/or clearing your user profile!
