I started using Ubuntu because I have a potato PC and I hate Windows, but now I'm trying to transition with everything I left behind. I installed a custom dictionary but it doesn't seem to have worked. I try to change the language of the whole text, but even if it shows up as "Italian" it doesn't correct anything.

Also, I tried using:

sudo apt install hunspell-en-gb

To install the British dictionary, but it doesn't look like I can select it (the USA version is still the preferred, standard language for the program).

I would appreciate any help, thank you.


In Writer, click Tools->Options->Language Settings->Writing Aids,
and add that dictionary with the Edit button.enter image description here
