Modern Greek spell checker dictionary, thesaurus for OpenOffice/LibreOffice and Mozilla projects.

Project Description

# Orthos/Ορθός
###############
Orthos (Greek Ορθός) - correct, or (in our case) writing correctly or orthography.

This project contains Greek dictionaries and a thesaurus that are primarily used in
creating extensions for LibreOffice and OpenOffice. It was started as a fork of
the LibreGreek GIT project at https://github.com/squibbylinux/LibreGreek.
Read the README files there to find out more about the background of the project
and the origin of its parts.

It also provides dictionary add-ons for Mozilla projects, Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey.

See the README file in orthos-<ver>.tar.gz file for more details.

If you want to install a speller and thesaurus in LibreOffice or OpenOffice
just get one of the files:

- orthos-el_GR-(version).oxt - Greek dictionary
- orthos-el_GR-en_US-(version).oxt - Greek/English dictionary
- orthos-el_GR-el_CY-(version).oxt - Greek/Greek Cypriot dictionary(experimental)
- orthos-thesaurus-(version).oxt - Greek thesaurus of synonyms

and install using the extensions manager. You can install more than one dictionry
but have only one active at a time. It is best to get these files from the latest
release which is the most stable.

If you want to install for Firefox/Thunderbird get one of the xpi files.

**Note that the files were named orthosgreek-<version>.oxt/xpi for versions 0.3 and before.

The el_GR version contains a Greek dictionary.
The el_GR-en_US version is a combined Greek/English spelling dictionary that is very
usefull to anyone that works with English and Greek multilingual documents.

Starting with version 0.4.0 dictionary add-ons for the Mozilla projects (Firefox,
Thunderbird, SeaMonkey) are also provided as xpi files. Install this using the corresponding
add-on procedures of the Mozilla project.

The orthos-<ver>.tar.gz archive file is a complete archive of the Orthos project. It is
primarily useful to those that want to expand on the project or see how the extensions are
created. It also contains more elaborate explantaion of how this project was put together.

The extensions were lightly tested against LibreOffice 4 and more extensively on LibreOffice 5.
No testing has been performed on Libreoffice 6 but extensions *seem* to be compatible.

Please submit any bugs, suggestions and comments by using the tickets system on Sourceforge.
