British English Thesaurus for OpenOffice 3.x

OpenOffice 3.x on Ubuntu doesn't come with a thesaurus for British English (en-gb), which is irritating. Google shows lots of recipes for faking a British thesaurus using the installed thesaurus for US English, which is at best an approximation, but in any case they don't work on OO3. A much better solution is to download the British English Thesaurus OpenOffice extension from the weekly whinge and install it (from any OO application: Tools » Extension manager... » Add ...). Kudos!

del.icio.us: openoffice, thesaurus, solved.
