I have sr-openoffice.org-3.1.20081009/, i.e. openoffice.org-3-devel
'editors/openoffice*' => [
on FreeBSD 7.1-PRERELEASE #0: Sun Oct 12 (i386) and I have all 3
sections in Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Writing Aids.
The OpenOffice.org dictionaries page says:
IMPORTANT NOTE: From OpenOffice.org 3.0 on the dictionary wizard
is not longer available -- Dictionaries are now available via
the extensions repository.
So, the OpenOffice.org-3 users are supposed to download .oxt files and
run them. However, I experienced the 'bad transfer url' problem with all
extension files; this was reported on FreeBSD mailing lists in the past
with no available solution.
Happily, the instruction from the same page (DictOOo-Wizard, intended
for OpenOffice.org-2) worked just fine in my OpenOffice-3. I downloaded
and it worked like a charm, installing Hunspell Spellchecker module and
Hope this helps.
