 Alex Carnes 2011-08-30 08:04:55 UTC Because I'm running out of space on my boot partition, I decided to install LibreOffice to my D drive in D:\Program Files\LibreOffice 3.4\. However, the 'check spelling as you type' feature doesn't work (and didn't with 3.4.2 either). If I perform a default install to drive C, it works fine. LibreOffice 3.4.3 RC2, XP x64 SP2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-08-31 05:16:17 UTC That looks like a DUP of "Bug 37195 - Dictionary access lost after LibO upgrade", although "If I perform a default install to drive C, it works fine" makes me wonder. Seems to be an installation issue. @Alex Really only a WRITER problem or also visible in CALC? What do you see in menu 'Tools -> Options -> Language settings -> Writing aids - Language modules'? If nothing, does the "'configmgr.ini' workaround" help? Please use for bug reports! Alex Carnes 2011-09-01 00:57:03 UTC OK, I just uninstalled it from my c drive and repeated the custom install to drive D. In 'Tools -> Options -> Language settings -> Writing aids - Available language modules' there is nothing. So it's probably related to Bug 37195, although as I said before, when I upgrade using the default install, the spell checker works. (Obviously the same problem applies to the other apps not just Writer.) I tried the workaround, i.e. Copy 'configmgr.ini' from the program directory (2.), and paste the file to the user profile directory, but it made no difference. Caolán McNamara 2011-09-01 07:21:48 UTC yeah, it could be a duplicate alright. In the sense that the config is "stuck" pointing at c:\path\to\dictionaries. To test that you could install into D:\, blow away the entire AppData/LibreOffice directory, and then start LibreOffice and see if it works then. Alex Carnes 2011-09-01 07:46:47 UTC Done! Blitzed the LibreOffice directories and re-installed to drive D and it worked. I'm rather stupid not to have thought of that myself, although I suppose the problem is still worth solving because all user prefs are lost. Thanks! Alex Caolán McNamara 2011-09-01 07:59:39 UTC yeah, I reckon its a dupe. "stuck" prereg configuration due to an un-overwritable common.rdb *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 37195 *** Björn Michaelsen 2011-12-22 05:51:52 UTC RESOLVED, FIXED or CLOSED bugs cant be KEYWORD NEEDINFO.
