Grammar Check for Open Office


Some times you might have thought of a grammar check tool for Open Office as you see it in Microsoft Office. At present there is a tool for that which is now a part of Open Office 3.0. It is actually an add on for Open Office. To add this feature you first need to download the language tool. Now you simply double click on it to get your grammar check feature installed. After installing restart the Firefox. Some times the installation may fail. In most cases insallation faliure may be due to the lack of java.

For this language tool to work you should have Java 5 or later.
 

To install Java 5, open the terminal and type 

        sudo apt-get install sun-java5-jdk 

Once you have installed this you may retry installing your language tool.
 

Some times even this may not work. Now you will need to install openoffice.org-java-common package to make your java working. You can install the missing package either in Synaptic or enter the following command in Terminal.

        sudo apt-get install openoffice.org-java-common
