How to install libreoffice-voikko on Ubuntu/Debian by compiling lots of it manually

This guide shows how to do things by manually compiling most of it manually.

You should be able to do make do with just packages from apt-get, so try that first: Using apertium spellers with libreoffice-voikko on Debian. But if one of the packages isn't working, (parts of) this guide may be helpful.


[edit] Install prerequisites

First add the repository by following Prerequisites for Debian.

Then install speller-prerequisites:

sudo apt-get install libreoffice python3 git make sed findutils zip unzip pkg-config gettext \
  libxml++2.6-dev libarchive-dev zlib1g-dev unzip automake autoconf libtool flex bison g++ libreadline-dev hfst

[edit] Manually compile other prerequisites

[edit] hfst-ospell

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/hfst/hfst/source/hfstospell-0.4.0.tar.gz
tar xvf hfstospell-0.4.0.tar.gz
cd hfstospell-0.4.0
./configure --enable-zhfst
make -j4
sudo make install

[edit] Libvoikko

sudo apt-get install hfst-ospell-dev

wget http://www.puimula.org/voikko-sources/libvoikko/libvoikko-4.0.tar.gz
tar xvf libvoikko-4.0.tar.gz
cd libvoikko-4.0
./configure --with-dictionary-path=$HOME/.voikko --enable-hfst
make -j4
sudo make install
You may also have to put
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
in your ~/.bashrc

[edit] voikko-fi

wget http://www.puimula.org/voikko-sources/voikko-fi/voikko-fi-2.0.tar.gz
tar xvf voikko-fi-2.0.tar.gz
cd voikko-fi-2.0
PATH=/usr/local/voikko/bin:$PATH make vvfst
sudo make vvfst-install DESTDIR=/usr/local/voikkodict

[edit] Install language module

This is based on Installation:

  • To install Kazakh language module, first get it
git clone https://github.com/apertium/apertium-kaz.git
cd apertium-kaz
./autogen.sh --enable-ospell
make -j4

Copy the speller data into your voikko data directory:

cp kaz.zhfst ~/.voikko/3/kk.zhfst

[edit] Test the speller from the command line

echo "қазақша билмеймін" | tr ' ' '\n' | voikkospell -d kk -s

The output should be:

C: қазақша
W: билмеймін
S: билеймін
S: білмеймін
S: билемеймін
S: бөлмеймін
S: билемейміз

[edit] Install LibreOffice-Voikko

git clone https://github.com/voikko/libreoffice-voikko
cd libreoffice-voikko/
make oxt

Add the extension:

  • Open LibreOffice
  • Goto Tools>Extension Manager
  • Click on the Add button

  • Click More… and Select Kazakh


  • Goto Tools>Options>Language
  • Choose Kazakh
  • Click Ok
  • Type "қазақша билмеймін"
  • A red wavy line will appear on билмеймін, meaning it's misspelled
  • To get correct suggestions, right-click on the mistaken word and suggestions will appear in context menu.
