Recently I noticed that Libreoffice stopped checking for mispellings. The spell checker would execute, but not find blatently mispelled words.

I noticed 2 odd things in Libreoffice:
1. The "Text Language" pull down on the pop-up spell check window is blank, and there are no options to select.
2. The "Available Language Modules" section of "Writing Aides" is blank (no modules) under Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Writing Aids

The Text selection at the bottom of the screen shows "English" as expected, and even if I explicitly select English as the language for a portion of text, the spell check still misses mispelled words and says everything is fine.

I've checked locale settings and confirmed that "eselect locale list" shows "en_US" as the default as expected.

I have tried wiping out all the Libreoffice settings by deleting ~/.config/libreoffice and unmerging then emerging libreoffice again. Have also reinstalled hunspell and hypen.


The only "weird" thing I've done recently is add ~AMD to package.accept_keywords for PyQt5-5.11.3 so I could emerge DVDStyler.


Anybody have any suggestions? How does Libreoffice recognize language modules? Can I explicitly emerge these modules?

TIA!

  1. Define the languages you want to be installed in /etc/portage/make.conf:
    Code:
    L10N="en de fr es"

  2. Emerge libreoffice-l10n
    Code:
    emerge --oneshot libreoffice-l10n

    Look at the output of emerge to see the languages that were installed:
    Code:
    >>> Unpacking LibreOffice_6.1.4.2_Linux_x86_rpm_langpack_de.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice-l10n-6.1.4.2/work
    >>> Unpacking LibreOffice_6.1.4.2_Linux_x86_rpm_langpack_es.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice-l10n-6.1.4.2/work
    >>> Unpacking LibreOffice_6.1.4.2_Linux_x86_rpm_langpack_fr.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/app-office/libreoffice-l10n-6.1.4.2/work
                                                         *** ^^ ***

  3. Restart libreoffice
