I'm not into libreoffice, but i think it uses myspell dictionaries.
The libreoffice-fr package only contains french translations of libreoffice,
AFAIK. You want myspell-fr_FR and one of the myspell-en_ variants
(en_GB, en_US, en_ZA ...)

About the installation problem i'm not sure, but maybe the forum
is better suited than this list for troubleshooting?
