LO 4.4.3.2 -> English Sentence checking is missing on Linux

Hi,

I am using LO 4.4.3.2 on two machines. A WIN7 x64 where I have recently upgraded from 4.3.x to 4.4.x. I was very happy to see the new spell checking capabilities regarding grammar and decided a few weeks later to use the stable ppt of the 4.4 branch to upgrade my LibreOffice 4.3 on my Ubuntu machine too.

However, the new section in TOOLS>>OPTIONS>>LANGUAGE SETTINGS called ENGLISH SENTENCE CHECKING is not present on the Ubuntu installation. The Linux installation seems to miss a module in WRITING AIDS in the Available module section named "Lightproof grammar checker (English)" as well, which is situated just below the Hunspell module on Windows (but not Linux). Now I was hunting for this plug-in on the LibreOffice section but was not able to find any.

Opening the extension manger on the win LO version I have an extension called "English Spelling dictionaries, hyphenation rules, thesaurus and grammar checking" in version 2011.12.05.1. Opening its preferences presents exactly the same options as in the new spelling section ENGLISH SENTENCE CHECKING.

Does anybody now where to get this for LO 4.4.x for Linux and how to install it?

Thanks a lot for your help!
