I've got two machines, same OS (Ubuntu 11.10 x86_64), same LibreOffice ppa's (ppa:libreoffice/ppa). One has the "English spelling dictionaries, hyphenation rules, thesaurus..." extension in the extension manager, the other doesn't. Each upgraded using the ppa from 3.5.0 to 3.5.1.
Can anyone provide some insight as to how to get this extension onto the second machine? I can remove LibreOffice from the second machine and install the packages from the LibreOffice site, but would prefer to keep the ppa - as I don't then need to remember to upgrade.

The LibreOffice PPA looks like it's targeted at testers. It's described as a place for "test builds and backports".
Most of the packages in this ppa have only experienced minor testing -- in fact it is the place to enable a wider audience to test packages before they are published into the distro proper. In general this ppa is _not_ for the average user to install without a closer look (if it would be, its packages would be in the main repositories).
It looks like you figured out how to route around this problem. If you experience further problems using the PPA builds, I suggest that you try a version of LO from the main Ubuntu repositories.
