Description of problem:
Croatian spelling checker doesn't work, even if it is installed. It is even not
listed when I tried to apply it manually.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpmgrep openoffice
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 126306 [details]
The files which are inside Croatian lang pack
I think we are missing a line in the dictionary list
and add the line
DICT hr HR hr_HR
to the end.
Does that fix this ?
Created attachment 126342 [details]
Files inclouded into openoffice.org-langpack-hr_HR-2.0.2-5.2.2.i386.rpm
It does not fix the problem, and that line is already inclouded into the file by
default. I even tried to fix the problem manually following the instructions
from here: http://cvs.linux.hr/spell/index.html , and it didn't help. The funny
thing is that everything works fine under SUSE 10.1 beta8 (?).
Perhaps attach your /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/share/dict/ooo/dictionary.lst

Here it comes above. And here's what I got in the /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/
DicOOo.sxw en_US.aff hyph_en_CA.dic th_en_US_v2.dat
dictionary.lst en_US.dic hyph_en_GB.dic th_en_US_v2.idx
en_GB.aff hr_HR.aff hyph_en_US.dic WordNet_license.txt
en_GB.dic hr_HR.dic README_en_GB.txt
Well, I played a bit with the new Ubuntu Dapper Dake yesterday and I noticed that Croatian spelling
checker works fine on Ubuntu. I copied all the /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/share/dict/ooo directory to
my Fedora Core 5 and everything works fine now on FC5. I'd like to upload that directory (5.7 MB
compressed in tar.bz2format) somewhere, so you can fix the problem. Where can I upload the file,
can I upload it here on Red Hat's bugzilla? Thanks.

This is the new hr_HR.dic file which works fine. Just upgrade it and everything
should work fine.

the new hr_HR.aff file

the new hyph_hr.dic file
Some investigation shows that these come from http://cvs.linux.hr/spell/ ,
they're not in the default upstream OpenOffice.org dictionaries, nor are they
available from the default "extras" contrib ftp of
which is why we didn't include them
adding to 2.0.3 devel
Hm... those packages from http://cvs.linux.hr/spell/myspell/ haven't been updated for almost 2
years, and the Croatian Ubuntu team fixed the problem recently. What ever it is, I hope that will fix
the problem. I will test the updated package for sure ;)
I've poked all the right people and gotten the contrib stuff on openoffice.org
updated to take the latest croatian dictionaries. So all should be organized
better from now on.
That's very nice to hear, thanks Caolan.
