Cannot install language packages

Hi I am using Linux for the very first time, so please keep this in mind.
I want to install Greek text to my keyboard
In system settings, language packages, tab available language packages, no extra languages appear and the install button is off.
I installed LibreOffice and the requisite Greek language package but nothing…
BTW what keystroke do I use to change between languages?
In Konsole cat/etc/locale.conf returns only US.UTFs. I guess that means that US lang is installed only.
Sorry for the newbee questions
Any ideas highly appreciated

check the regional setting option


That is related to Keyboard Layout. Check in Settings > Input devices > Keyboard and switch to Layouts tab. You can set different things there, switch the order, assign a shortcut … Test also the variants …

Depending if you installed libreoffice-fresh or libreoffice-still … you need to install libreoffice-fresh-el or libreoffice-still-el for Greek language. If you need also thesaurus and spell check, there are other steps you need to do. You need to install libmythes and mythes-el for thesaurus and hunspell-el for dictionary…
Also see LibreOffice - ArchWiki

Go step by step Locale - ArchWiki
