I have recently installed Lubuntu 12.04 on my wife's laptop. She has been using Libreoffice under Ubuntu and finds that spellcheck does nothing. She has turned on the icon, tried invoking spellcheck from the Tools menu but none of her deliberate mistakes get flagged. I checked that Aspell is installed, and have tried also installing hunspell but still nothing reported.

Is the problem that the dictionary isn't initialized? See: [askubuntu.com/questions/203727/…; [1]: askubuntu.com/questions/203727/… –  CentaurusA Nov 18 '12 at 21:20
