There isn't a built-in grammar checker. If you want to add one, here's a grammar checker extension, one of the many on the extensions page for OpenOffice.org.
Once you download it, choose Tools > Extension Manager to install it.

Never mind. You have to close and re-open Writer.

So far I'm not impressed. I entered "This is going be a great day." into Writer and it found nothing wrong with the grammar at all.

Hmm, there should be a new LanguageTool menu with appropriate options for running it.

I expected something like the grammar checker in Microsoft Word. It turned out to be only a spelling checker.

It is a grammar checker. Close and re-open Writer. It might not look the same way as the one in Word.

I think have loaded the language package.
I still cannot get Writer to flag a single grammar error.
Should not "The ball was painted red." be flagged as passive?
Can we get a more through description of the install and testing of the grammar checker?

Not a very good grammar checker. It did not find a very obvious who/whom mistake.

This is not working at all. I have tried over five grammar mistakes, and did not detect
