Hi, I am a reasonably incompetent linux user, and I have just tried to upgrade to upgrade to Version (Build ID: 7545bee9c2a0782548772a21bc84a9dcc583b89) to get the spelling to work.

The installation of LO went well and works, but I can't get the Help to install. This is what I get:

martin@martin-desktop ~/Computing/Martin/LibreOffice/4.0.0 LibreOffice_4.0.0.3_Linux_x86-64_deb_helppack_en-GB/DEBS $ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
[sudo] password for martin:
(Reading database ... 173962 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace libobasis4.0-en-gb-help (using libobasis4.0-en-gb-help_4.0.0.3-103_amd64.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement libobasis4.0-en-gb-help ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libobasis4.0-en-gb-help: libobasis4.0-en-gb-help depends on libobasis4.0-en-gb; however: Package libobasis4.0-en-gb is not installed.
dpkg: error processing libobasis4.0-en-gb-help (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing: libobasis4.0-en-gb-help

Can anyone please tell me what I've done wrong, and perhaps more importantly, how to put it right!!!

Thanks loads Martin

PS I am running Linux Mint 13 Maya

Having seen the most voted answer, I didn't realise that I had to install the language pack as well

The prerequisite for the en-gb helppack is the en-gb langpack. So if you wish to install the complete en-gb version you need to download the three files, base, langpack and helppack and install them in that order. I have installed the gb version on Mint 13 Maya and it works fine.

You may have been caught by the following when installing the langpac:

package libreoffice4.0-dict-en- is already installed

Respond with :

sudo rpm -Uvh --force *.rpm

Then your helppack will install.
