I have installed openoffice-bin and hunspell supporting english, german and spanisch.

Code:
# eix hunspell
[I] app-text/hunspell
     Available versions:  1.1.9 1.2.6 (~)1.2.7 1.2.8 (~)1.2.9 (~)1.2.11 {linguas_af linguas_bg linguas_ca linguas_cs linguas_cy linguas_da linguas_de linguas_el linguas_en linguas_eo linguas_es linguas_et linguas_fo linguas_fr linguas_ga linguas_gl linguas_he linguas_hr linguas_hu linguas_id linguas_it linguas_ku linguas_lt linguas_lv linguas_mk linguas_ms linguas_nb linguas_nl linguas_nn linguas_pl linguas_pt linguas_ro linguas_ru linguas_sk linguas_sl linguas_sv linguas_sw linguas_tn linguas_uk linguas_zu ncurses nls readline}
     Installed versions:  1.2.11(09:55:37 AM 05/20/2010)(linguas_de linguas_en linguas_es ncurses nls readline -linguas_af -linguas_bg -linguas_ca -linguas_cs -linguas_cy -linguas_da -linguas_el -linguas_eo -linguas_et -linguas_fo -linguas_fr -linguas_ga -linguas_gl -linguas_he -linguas_hr -linguas_hu -linguas_id -linguas_it -linguas_ku -linguas_lt -linguas_lv -linguas_mk -linguas_ms -linguas_nb -linguas_nl -linguas_nn -linguas_pl -linguas_pt -linguas_ro -linguas_ru -linguas_sk -linguas_sl -linguas_sv -linguas_sw -linguas_tn -linguas_uk -linguas_zu)
     Homepage:            http://hunspell.sourceforge.net/
     Description:         Hunspell spell checker - an improved replacement for myspell in OOo.


Unfortunately I can not make the spell checking mechanism work in OO 3.2

In Tools - Options - Language Setting - Writing Aids the list 'Available language modules' is empty. So this might be the reason.

Does anyone knows how to solve this problem?

I seem to recall (but it's hazy) that you have to
use openoffice extensions to get spelling in the
bin version.

I don't know how that works since I use the
compiled version (which I think is better in
certain ways in any case).

Thanks, I will give it s shot. But compiling openoffice is very time consuming. Is there a way to speed up this process? I remember that there is a setting in make.conf to speed it up. But I can not find this option anymore.

Not sure, but there's "MAKEOPTS="-jX" where X is your number of threads + 1

So for my core-i7 920 I have MAKEOPT="-j9" -- takes about 45 minutes
to compile OO.

Thanks albright,

this parameter I have already set to 3 because I have a Core2Duo (T7200 - 2 GHz) with has no hyperthreading.
I hope compiling OO will be done in a few hours. If I remember correctly I took about 9 to 10 hours when I compiled it the last time. Don't know on which hardware.

So tomorrow I will see if this pays off.

Ok, it is done ...

Now spell checking is working. :-)

Thanks for your support.
