As I noted the spell check is not working. On selecting language in spellcheck box, it only shows None(see the screenshot).

Also on launching LibreOffice through terminal it shows:

 $ libreoffice6.0 
 javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
 Warning: failed to read path from javaldx

System : Ubuntu 18.04 (Gnome 3.28)

LibreOffice Version:

Is this a fresh install or upgrade? What does your Language Settings > Writing Aids setup look like? (Also Languages just above it.) I'm also using Ubuntu 18.04 + LibO and spellcheck works fine. Do you have another LibO installed on the same machine? Mine launches from terminal with just libreoffice, fwiw. Please edit your post to include further relevant details. Thanks.

Perhaps it's also worth checking out the few AskUbuntu Q&As on LibO spellcheck issues.

Is this a fresh install or upgrade? This is fresh install from Deb package provided by libre office website. The same thing happened on bundled app which I uninstalled through software.

I have a similar problem. Clicking on 'None' allows me to see a language but when I click on it, 'None' remains.

Bug still exists in 6.1.3. Can't set language.
