KUbuntu and OpenOffice dictionaries/spell checking

I’ve tried to install the Portuguese dictionaries on Open Office using the Wizard->Install dictionaries.

Due to permission issues I was unable to install it and didn’t want to mess around with permissions our sudo.

So to install:

Download the dictionaries from here: http://ftp.services.openoffice.org/pub/OpenOffice.org/contrib/dictionaries/pt_PT.zip

Unzip it to your work directory

Sudo to directory /usr/share/myspell/dicts.

Copy the files pt_PT.* from where you unziped them to this folder.

Edit the dictionary.lst file and add the line:

DICT pt PT pt_PT

That’s it. You now have the PT language installed and can go to Options->Language and set the default language to Portuguese.
