I have watched the tutorial video, maybe that will work better.

Hi Frans,

You don't need to download any packages for SolydXK: they are all in the repositories.
There is a tutorial on installing software on your system: http://solydxk.nl/community/tutorials/#software
In short:
  1. Open Software Manager (you'll find that in the start menu)
  2. Search for LibreOffice, and select whatever you need
Unfortunately, you have to do this separately for "libreoffice-l10n-nl", "libreoffice-help-nl", and "myspell-l10n-nl".

You can also do it the easy way by opening a terminal (open your start menu, and you'll see a black squared icon), and type:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-l10n-nl libreoffice-help-nl myspell-l10n-nl
You can also copy the above line and paste in the terminal with Control-Shift-V, and hit Enter.
You will be asked for your root's password, the one you entered when you installed your system.

I found that as well as installing LibreOffice itself, I had to find myspell in the appropriate language (in my case en_GB)and install it to get the spell checker to work.

@fransvandenberg,

If you are running SolydXK you do not want to download the rpm's, but the deb's.

As Schoelje mentioned, you can install the version 4.0.3 from the SolydXK repos.
It is a stable and current.

If you already have that, but want even newer then that is another question.

Adapted the install code above to include myspell.

Glad I found this thread.
I had no idea myspell-xx was required.
Spell check finally working. :D

This may be the ultimate in dumb questions, but would an English install command be:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-l10n libreoffice-help myspell-l10n

I really don't know and what I think I know is subject to question, but really

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libreoffice-kde
on SolydX?

That brings in a lot of dependencies.

I thought you were talking about SolydK.
Obviously, you leave out the kde packages for SolydX
