This page lists spell checker dictionaries, hyphenation files, and thesauri for OpenOffice.org.

To install a new dictionary, call "File -> Wizards -> Install new dictionaries" in OpenOffice.org. Then exit and re-start OpenOffice.org, including the Quickstarter (if used). Most of the files on this page are available for installation via the wizard. If not, download the Pack file, and use the "off-line language installation" option of DicOOo wizard.

From OpenOffice.org 3.0 on this wizard is not longer available. Dictionaries are now available via the extensions repository.

OpenOffice.org dictionaries wizard in Ubuntu.

If the window is too small when using the File>Wizards>Install new dictionaries then make sure visual effects (compiz) are disabled (that is: change from "Extra" or "Normal" to "None" in Ubuntu System | Settings | Appearance | Visual Effect tab). In order to use this wizard in Ubuntu (tested on Kubuntu 7.10) you need to have the package openoffice.org installed in addition to standard installation of open-office.org-writer and open-office.org-calc. You can do this by typing sudo apt-get install openoffice.org

You are free to add other resources, but please note that files which are supposed to be installable using OpenOffice.org's integrated wizard (DicOOo) need to be hosted on the official server (ftp.services.openoffice.org). Please contact the lingucomponent mailing list or dnaber at openoffice org to upload your files there.

OpenOffice.org dictionaries in Fedora. In Fedora, dictionaries can be install using yum. To install open office, you can use the "Add/Remove Software" application, or you can do this from the command line with "yum install openoffice.org-writer". The languages can then be installed using something like "yum install openoffice.org-langpack-fr" to install the french language support. A list of currently installed and available languages can be seen using "yum list openoffice.org-langpack*".
