Description of problem:
Even though there is a norwegian spell-checker avalable from
openoffice.org (the website), no norwegian spell-checker is avalable
using the openoffice.org packages from Fedora. Neither "Bokmï¿½l" or
"Nynorsk" is avalable. Both should be included.
I have added the spell-checker manually myself, following instructions
from the webiste, but this is needlessly hard. Please include
Norwegian spell-check, I'm almost as bad at spelling in my native
tounge as I am in English.
Here's links to the release notes and -zip files with the dictionaries

Norwegian Nynorsk: nn_NO:

Yes i agree. As we applied Fedora Core 1 at a Norwegian school,
having to install norwegian (and back then almost every
spell-checker) on each computer was a nigthmare. Yes we made a script
for it, but... And then the update came and we had to do it all over
BTW. i'we heard that the norwegian openoffice team have a better
spell checker in the (windows) version they gave to all students in
akershus (larger dictionary). Take a look to
(the page is in norwegian)
If it is interesting, i may try to get a copy of the norvegian
language file they use and mail it to you. (i've heard that it is
about 5 MB - so it will not be possible to just attach it.)
OK. Iv ripped the directory containing the spell-checkers (the whole
directory - maybe you find something else interesting) from one of
the windows versions. They do got a 5 MB dictionary for bokmÃ¥l, and I
guess it's better than the one found at linguecomponent.
Here it is:
Don't think there should be any problems with licensing and stuff.
More info: http://www.afk-support.no/cd/ (for those who read
I strongly hope that you will include those, or at least those found
Just to be shure i've included every scrap of files (i found) on the
cd as a zipped attachment. Note that this cd also included sun java,
acrobat reader, and norman anti-virus.

Target: FC3, may show up as an update to FC2 and FC1
