update-bgoffice-dicts(1) automate updating of bgoffice dictionaries


update-bgoffice-dicts [option...]


update-bgoffice-dicts automates the downloading and updating of bgoffice dictionaries. It uses debconf(7) to ask the user which dictionaries to download, then invokes bgoffice-dict-download(1) to download them, and finaly extracts the files in the right directory, so that bgoffice can find them.

The last part will fail unless update-bgoffice-dicts is run as root.


Normally, debconf won't ask the questions that are already seen by the user. That behaviour is disabled by default, as it is quite useful to be able to change your dictionary selection when invoking update-bgoffice-dicts. If you want to simply re-download and unpack the dictionaries, based on a previously made selection, use that option.
