No dictionary seems to be present or spellchecking engine not working.
When pression f7 to do spellcheck no dictionary is present, only english. Even when making mistakes in english they are not corrected.
I went to tools—extensions (or whatever the name is) and added the
french dictionary at https://extensions.libreoffice.org/extensions/dictionnaires-francais
the spanish at https://extensions.libreoffice.org/extensions/spanish-dictionaries
it still doesn’t work. The dictionaries are displayed in the extensions but don’t work.
libreoffice-help-fr , es and en-us are installed
libreoffice-l10n-fr, es and en are also installed.
