I use Ubuntu’s 6.06 TLS Desktop and Debian Sarge 3.1. I have also used Word 2000 for special cases especially when I need some language tools. Recently, I did a search for a thesaurus for Openoffice.org 2 and found a debian package called openoffice.org-thesaurus-sk_2.0.3-2_all.deb. It’s downloadable from here.
To my surprise, it loaded right away on my Ubuntu desktop and works nicely. Here’s the description from the Debian package site:
Openoffice.org is a full-featured office productivity suite that provides a near drop-in replacement for Microsoft(R) Office. This package contains an Slovak thesaurus for OpenOffice.org.
I thought I would pass this along since it works well and provides one more feature to bring Openoffice.org into the status of an industrial strength office productivity suite.
Curious, I started looking for the same thesaurus for other operating systems such as Windows and found this site called lingucomponent . You might check it out.
Fortunately, the Debian package provided me an English language version. I haven’t located one for other systems yet. If you know of one, you might let us know in the comments section.
Hopefully, you’ll find this information as useful as I did.
