Add Indonesian Dictionary in OpenOffice 3

in this new OpenOffice 3, the dictionary system is different than the previous one. So I couldn’t use the old dictionary format, unfortunately there’s no Indonesian dictionary at the repository. There’s a spellchecker uploaded by Rossano Rossi, but it doesn’t worked. I search for the alternative way and arrived at this page. Seems like not just me who have this problem in my Ubuntu.

There’s a reply from Tom, that I followed, and it worked!! So i rewrite again in my blog

  1. Download the Indonesian dictionary (you can download it here)
  2. Unzipped it and copy the id_ID.dic; id_ID.aff; and hyph_id_ID.dic to
    /usr/share/myspell/dicts
  3. Locate for ‘Linguistic.xcu’ file in ~/.openoffice.org/3/user/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/ open it in text editor
  4. Look for ‘HyphenatorList’ node and add this below the node :
    <prop oor:name="id-ID" oor:op="replace" oor:type="oor:string-list">
    <value>org.openoffice.lingu.LibHnjHyphenator</value>
    </prop>
  5. Look for ‘SpellCheckerList’ node and add this below the node :
    <prop oor:name="id-ID" oor:op="replace" oor:type="oor:string-list">
    <value>org.openoffice.lingu.MySpellSpellChecker</value>
    </prop>
  6. Save the ‘Linguistic.xcu‘ file

When you check the OpenOffice 3, you could select Indonesian language at Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Languages. Have a try!!
