Bug Description


I relatively recently installed Ubuntu 23.04 on my mum’s laptop and LibreOffice on it through snap (she is on “latest/stable”; version

> Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community
> Build ID: 9d0b4c0791fc17bc4181a67fd90c5aaed576d1c0
> CPU threads: 2; OS: Linux 6.2; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
> Locale: nl-NL (nl_NL.UTF-8); UI: nl-NL
> Calc: threaded

My mum’s laptop doesn’t have Dutch (“Nederlands”) dictionaries, neither from Belgium nor from The Netherlands. Many other dictionaries are there in the list (Litouws, Noors).

The Dutch language packs are installed on the system and the system + LibreOffice interface are in Dutch.

Could I request that the elements necessary for enabling spell check are added to the snap? (My deb-based installation does have the Dutch language spell check option.)

Many thanks in advance!
