A new version of Ubuntu has just been released, Saucy Salamander, And I know that many of you instead of upgrading the old version of Ubuntu you had, preferred to install the new version ex novo or install Ubuntu for the first time. As with Ubuntu, it happens with the different flavors of Ubuntu and some of them do not contain by default LibreOffice, Is the case of Lubuntu and Xubuntu, Distributions that can be installed on equipment that can run perfectly LibreOffice. Faced with this problem, it’s time to install LibreOffice by hand and with that also put it in Spanish, since it does not usually come by default in Spanish nor does it recognize the language of the operating system. The best thing about this whole process is that the necessary packages are in the Canonical repositories so there is no need to do anything to fuck up the integrity of our operating system.
To put in Spanish the LibreOffice menus all you have to do is open one terminal and type the next one
its apt get install LibreOffice-l10n-ca
We press integer and we will proceed to the installation of this package that puts the menus in Spanish. For this step so much that we have Lubuntu, Xubuntu or a server installation, All that is required is to have it installed LibreOffice, As is obvious.
Just like it happened and it happens with OpenOffice, Changing the language of the menus does not mean that the managed dictionaries correspond to the installed language, moreover, there are times when we have the menus in one language and we want you to use the dictionary in another language , for this we need to install the dictionary in question, so we opened the terminal or console and wrote:
sudo apt-cache search MySpell
with this we will see a list of packages that correspond to the dictionaries available for LibreOffice. These packages will be headed by MySpell followed by two letters that correspond to the letters of the language, so in the case of Spanish it will be enough to choose «is«, So to install-write:
sudo apt-get install MySpell-es
But we can have other dictionaries, That’s up to you. And with that, if we open ours LibreOffice, You will see that you will have to Spanish and the spell checker will work correctly in Spanish or the language you have installed.
