sorry, I truncated my original questions.
a) Is this with the .debs downloaded from www.libreoffice.org or with the distro-provided packages ?
b) did you actually install an additional "openoffice.org-thesaurus-en-us" extension or package from somewhere or other ?
What's supposed to happen "out of the box" with the .rpms/.debs provided from the download site is that you have a functional thesaurus in English UK when bundled libreoffice-3.5-en-US-3.5.2-202 package is installed, i.e. that you have "English spell dictionaries....thesaurus" listed in tools->"extension manager"
(works here with "vanilla" 3.5.2 rpms)

USA dictionary WITH thesaurus
thanks for your interest.
I'm using LO 18.104.22.168 from the PPA under ubuntu oneric (version 3.5.1 comes only from ppa until versione 12.04 of ubuntu)
the installed openoffice.org-thesaurus-en-us comes from the system repository
What is supposed to happen, is that having English UK would give the thesaurus as in the English USA.
But as you can see from the two screenshot , selecting UK version shows no thesaurus present in the language.
Its not clear to me (not using Ubuntu) what the configuration of that PPA is, e.g. if...
a) there are multiple packages and the thesaurus extension is in an un-installed package
b) its configured to use system thesaurus files and the en-US one isn't e.g. symlinked to the en-GB one like Fedora does
Do you have "English spell dictionaries....thesaurus" listed in tools->"extension
manager" ?, Seeing as you've got working English spell-checking, if you don't have any English LibreOffice extensions installed then it might be "b"
I *think* this is an artifact of how that PPA is configured, i.e. its designed to use the system provided thesaurus data and spell-checking files etc to avoid effectively duplicating them (like the "vanilla" packages do by bundling a dict-en extension) and you've been tripped up by https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org-dictionaries/+bug/950949
FWIW Debian considers linking between en-US and en-GB dirty as those are indeed different.
FWIW, the vanilla dict-en extension does the moral equivalent of linking the en-GB to the en-US thesaurus (I think I might have done that) and Fedora (*cough* same person again) links them physically. A separate thesaurus might be a good thing, on the other hand the thesaurus is 18 megs :-)
