Hi Norman,

I expect the package you need is either

openoffice.org2-l10n-cy - Welsh language package for

or - Welsh language package for

depending which version of you have installed - on 5.10 (breezy) it would likely be the former.

Then I think you would go to

Tools -Options - Language Settings -Writing Aids

and edit the spell check ( click on Edit) , which appears under "Available Language Modules" :  in the "Language" drop down you should then see Welsh as one of the ticked possibilities.  Select this and close.

You can also set Welsh (or whatever you wish),  as default under the 

Tools -Languages - Default Languages for Documents

I think this should do it for you ...
