Hello,

In French (my mother language), there is a software called Antidote which is really good for grammar checking. What is even better, is that it works on Linux (last version even on 64bit).

I'm looking for an equivalent in English. I found WhiteSmoke but it's only for Windows and OsX.

Is there an equivalent for Linux ?

Thank you

I believe that even OpenOffice.org lacks this feature, anyone can confirm whether a plug-in/add-on exists?

Okay here's a few possibilities to check out :)

First, there's Queequeg, a grammer checker for non-english speaking people. Remember, as with anything that tries to reduce 'style' to a quantifiable object, YMMV ;)

http://sourceforge.net/projects/queequeg/

And next is, of course, OOo, which already has a grammatical thingy built in, but also has an additional plug-in: http://www.languagetool.org/

LanguageTool can be used with or without OOo.

AbiWord has a grammer module too.

WhiteSmoke, at eighty bucks, is supposed to be totally awesome

Readability Report is supposed to be pretty good too, as an extension to OOo.

And there's GrammerSlammer too.

For online resources, there's Daily Grammer and Grammer Monster.

I hope that helps!

Kindest regards,

Bradley

Thank you I'll check this out. I read that languagetool and the abiword module are not verry efficient. Have you tried it ? Whitesmoke works on Linux ? http://www.whitesmoke.com/faq.html says only win and osx... I prefer not be dependent on the internet connexion. So OOo extension I guess

It is quite frustrating and make me down every time when I think about that. I felt alone because I had no confident and determination enough to be here. Many people said that I have to push myself to take it as my fate. As now, a few week I have been in UPSI, I was really work hard to change my perception and mind to set a new goal for this course. I must take it as a challenge for thrive to success. In college, I do active by taking part and join any program held by our college. I was involving myself with Rakan Penggerak Ad-din (RPA), Technical Support Team Club, Al-Falah member and Exco Insaniah.
