Spellchecker – How to Enable it On The Raspberry Pi 3

Spellchecker Not Working?

After installing the OS, I went looking around at the programs and had a look at LibreOffice. I went to the LibreOffice Writer and started typing in the space, and noticed that it wasn’t underlining my text with red, when something was miss spelled. I googled it (source link) and found out that the spellchecker, has to be installed and enabled, before it will work. And, it’s pretty simple to do.

command terminalSo to install it, you just go to the command terminal (click the monitor icon next to the planet icon on your desktop task bar) and type in: sudo apt-get update and then once finished, sudo apt-get install myspell-en-us (for the UK: sudo apt-get install myspell-en-gb libreoffice-l10n-en-gb).

Then reboot! Then it should be working!
