Enable thesaurus for English UK in OpenOffice 3.2

Long time no post I guess. :) . Ok, today I just want to share with all of you on how to enable Ctrl+F7 a.k.a thesaurus button if you choose English(UK) as default languange for all of your OpenOffice documents.

Open up your Terminal and type

sudo apt-get install libmythes-dev


cd /usr/share/mythes/

sudo ln -s th_en_US_v2.dat th_en_GB_v2.dat

sudo ln -s th_en_US_v2.idx th_en_GB_v2.idx

Restart OpenOffice.

Problem solved. (I hope so :D It works for me and I hope it works on you too.)
