Well, I downloaded the OOo Thesaurus from Debian, and it complained about a 
dependency problem.  The name of the OOo2 package from the repository is named:  
The Debian repository uses the naming scheme:<Package> with the version number indicating that its for 
version 2.
So, when you try to install the Thesaurus it complains that 
"" >=1.9 not installed.  Even though, 
"OpenOffice.org2-core" is installed.

So you have to force it to install, however now it shows up as broken.  
Any Ideas.
BTW:  The File->Wizards->Install new Dictionaries Did not work at all.  
Nothing comes up after selecting that.
