Good time of the day! I just installed LibreOffice6, but I am unable to install Russian dictionary. When I try to open dict_pack_ru-aot-0-4-0.oxt file I get the following message:" Add Extension(s): C:\Users\rustam\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\user\uno_packages\cache\uno_packages\lu2g4r3.tmp_\dict_pack_ru-aot-0-4-0.oxt does not exists."

How I can anyway install the Russian dictionary?

Well - did you follow the external extension site mentioned on the extension page?

I did not asked to follow. I downloaded dict_pack_ru-aot-0-4-0.oxt and double-clicked this extension. The LibreOffice window and extension manager opened, the installation begun, but after that I got this message.

I downloaded dict_pack_ru-aot-0-4-0.oxt

... and missed the part on the download page that the extension is third-party and is supported externally

O'k. What exactly I should do in order to install the dictionary?

Nonono :) you mentioned dict_pack_ru-aot-0-4-0.oxt, which is from this page, and there is this information:

Actually, I had installed it to on Win10 without problems. So - please follow the link to the dictionary homepage, and there we can discuss it in Russian, which specifics could prevent you from installing it.

I had read this forum (forumooo), but I do not understand how it can help me. The last message was from 2016. Thus I do not understand, why we cannot discuss this issue here?

No problem to discuss it here; but it will be not helpful to others who will look at the extension forum page.

I'd advise first to clean up user profile.

How I do this? I am afraid, that some information could be lost. By the way, I installed version and I have the same problem. Before all these installations I probably had version 5.4.1 or may be some of the subversions 5.3.* .

Please rename the profile directory; this will enable to get back to the backed up profile in case you miss something.
