Re: Comment faire fonctionner correcteur orthographe LibreOf

Apparemment, votre installation de LO est incomplète au départ si vous voulez ce type de fonctions. Il vous manque au moins les paquets "mythes-fr" et "hunspell-fr" et peut-être "hyphen-fr" pour les césures. Ceux-ci sont seulement "suggérés" dans les dépendances de LO et donc ne sont pas installés ...

De quels sites précisément il s'agit et pourriez-vous poster une capture d'écran pour montrer cela svp? Merci d'avance.

Re: Distros of interest and why.

Sorry for writing so much but after reading how the Linux desktop was dead I have to completely disagree with that. Distributions are taking their own direction, taking responsibility for what they are releasing and in my opinion providing a higher level of quality than ever before. And multiple bu...

Re: is it true that you wont be able to put linux on a pc?

this is what I am saying. UEFI secure boot will force Linux users to buy computers with linux preinstalled. and building your own computers will be less expensive with non secure boot motherboards because windows users will abandon them.
