    Default Remove Libreoffice

    I installed Libreoffice 3.6 using this helpline: How To Install LibreOffice 3.5 In openSUSE | Muktware

    Now, I want to remove it completely (i.e., also remove its entries ins YaST Software Management). How can I do that?

    Thanx....

    Note that it is always going to show up as a possible package to install
    if it's in a repository you're subscribed to.

    Uninstalling the packages will remove it from your system.

    Well, that stinks. (sorry, couldn't resist)

    What happens when you try to run a spell check?

    Look within LibreOffice: Tools - Options - Language Settings - Writing Aids

    Can you see your desired dictionary in the selection "User-defined dictionairies" ?

    I had set my default language as English India but it was not there in the list. English (GB) (UK) was there in the list, so I set English UK as my default language. But still there is no effect. Auto spell check (and not smell check ) still does not work.

    Whenever I open Tools -> Spelling & Grammar, I get a dialogue box saying 'Spell check is complete' even if I purposely write misspelled words in the document.
    Thanx....

    open terminal and install "myspell-british" .Only American is installed by default

    Code:
    sudo zypper in myspell-british
    You can also install "myspell-british" through YaST installer.

    You may additionally need to delete the old profile and reconfigure the settings

    I don't understand. First you ask how to completely remove LibreOffice.
    Then you ask about problems with the spellchecker... I'm baffled,
    because you removed it all! You can no longer spellcheck with LO, as you
    don't have it. You may do spell check on a plain text file using the
    command line "aspell" or "ispell".

    And the subject of this thread is still "Remove Libreoffice"...

    Can you please clarify?

    Great! It works......I did not have to delete the old profile.....simply installing myspell-british helped. Now can you tell me how to get English (India)?

    Thanx a lot....!

    Actually, I was trying to install LibreOffice 3.6 with the help of this link: How To Install LibreOffice 3.5 In openSUSE | Muktware

    After following the instructions, something weird happened. YaST was experiencing package problems and my LibreOffice was not working. I wanted to remove it and so, I started this thread. After that, I installed LibreOffice 3.6 from software.opensuse.org: [unstable packages]. I installed LibreOffice 2.6 and all my problems were solved except for the dictionary one. I would also like to mention here, that the dictionary was not working in LibreOffice 3.5 also [the preinstalled one]. I did not start a new thread for this dictionary problem. Hope this clears your doubt.

    Thanx....
    --------------

    Joke Of the Day: I misspelled 'spell' as 'smell' due to the lack of LibreOffice dictionary......!
