I'm using Debian Jessie, LibreOffice is 220.127.116.11. I'm having a document for which the text language is 'German (Austria)', alternatively I tried 'German (Germany)'. I can't spell check my text. If I select 'Tools > Spelling and Grammar...' a 'Spelling' dialog pops up with another stupid modal dialog on top that reads
Continue checking at beginning of document?
followed (no matter what I click) by
The spellcheck is complete
Although the text obviously contains mistakes. The text language combo box of the underlying inactive dialog is empty, and also there are no wavy lines in the text as I type.
I already tried
apt-get install libreoffice-l10n-de, and also I went through this process of manually downloading some
.oxt package from the website and adding it with the extension manager.
Simply, I don't get any German spell checking whatsoever.
