    Openoffice 2.4 Spell checker not working


    Using Debian Lenny
    Openoffice.org2.4

    The SpellChecker isn't working on OpenOffice.
    In tools > options > language settings
    > languages

    I have it set to English Canada. I also tried changing to English US, but I still
    couldn't get it to work.

    I need some help to get this to work. How do I check to see if I have the right
    dictionaries and the right settings in OpenOffice?

    Thanks

    I installed myspell-en-us and myspell-en-gb.

    I can spell check a new document, but I tried checking documents that I have
    saved and it doesn't work. It skips over the mistakes.

    Thanks
