OpenOffice.org 2.4 doesn't highlight spelling errors in Ubuntu 8.04


I have installed Ubuntu 8.04 and while using OpenOffice.org 2.4, I feel it's not highlighting spelling errors. I have the auto spell check option turned on, and the language is to set to English USA. Please guide me on how to fix it.


You need a dictionary for your OpenOffice.org. To install the dictionary, start OpenOffice.org and go to File->Wizards->Install New Dictionaries. Now click on your preferred language and then click the DicOOo wizard, and follow the on screen instructions. Do not isntall too many dictionaries, as this affects the performance of OpenOffice.org.
