Get Spell Checking Working in Libre Office on a Raspberry Pi

Spell checking never seems to work, by default, in Libre Office on a Raspberry Pi.

To get it working:

# Go to:
https://extensions.libreoffice.org/extensions/english-dictionaries/

# Click on the Current Release or go to the below URL which
# is current as of now!
https://extensions.libreoffice.org/extensions/english-dictionaries/2017-01.01

# Download the .oxt file

# In Libre Office go to Tools / Extension Manager

# Add the .oxt file

# Spell checking now works!

 

Mount a Network Drive on a Raspberry Pi

This has been tested on Jessie with the PIXEL Desktop. I haven’t tested it in previous versions. ┬áSubstitute the IP address in fstab and the share name, as appropriate!

# Make a directory in /mnt
sudo mkdir /mnt/DataDisk

# Edit fstab:
sudo nano /etc/fstab

# Add a line with a similar format as below
//192.168.178.240/DataDisk /mnt/DataDisk cifs guest,iocharset=utf8,_netdev,x-systemd.automount 0 0

# Reboot and check that things mount OK after a reboot
sudo shutdown -r now
