Libre Office Writer Spell check shows as completed the moment I click on it but doesn't do any spelling checks at all.

LibreOffice Writer: Version: Build ID: 6.2.4-1 CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.19; UI render: default; VCL: gtk2; Locale: en-IN (en_IN); UI-Language: en-US Calc: threaded

Language settings: Tools > Options > Language settings > Languages >

Packages installed: hunspell, hunspell-en, mythes-en,hyphen-en,hyphen, libmythes

If you make the default spell checker US and do a spell check does it work?

If yes, then when set to Indian spell checking you don't actually have an Indian dictionary and this needs to be found and installed. I always have to do it for NZ spelling as it thinks it has done a check but hasn't if the right dictionary isn't installed.
