I found that the problem is java jre version. The extension is compiled with version 1.8, but my system by default uses version 1.7 despite I have both version of jre installed.

After running: 'sudo archlinux-java set java-8-openjdk/jre' everything works again.

The funny thing is that after setting default jre back to 1.7 don't break the extension.

I have reinstalled the system and the error is back: The status of this extension is unknown.

I tested it on LO 5.2.1 and 5.1.5.2. This time re-installation of the languagetool doesn't fix the issue.

After upgrading to 3.2-1, LibreOffice's extension manager shows the extension disabled, with error message "Error: The status of this extension is unknown".

Applying 3ED_0's suggestion below worked around the issue:
1. remove this package
2. start lowriter then close
3. install this package
4. start libreoffice

probably "java-runtime" >= 8 since all java packages provide that in their PKGBUILD.

3ED_0 commented on 2016-09-22 10:28

Which one? OpenJDK or OpenJRE? OracleJDK or maybe OracleJRE? Closest I can think is java-runtime-common (pkgver=2) or optdepends/install=info.

mittens2001 commented on 2016-09-22 05:07

shouldn't java >= 8 be a dependency?

Is it possible to make this package depend on the languagetool found in the stable repos and then just provide the libreoffice extension functionality?

In my case I had to to the following:

In libreoffice go to Tools > Options > Advanced and select Java 8 from there.

Setting it system wide with archlinux-java was not helpful.

I found the root cause of my problem. I was using a Java interface tweak from Arch Wiki (add "-Dswing.defaultlaf=com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel" to JAVA_OPTIONS), which forced the use of GTK. However, currently Oracle JRE is linked against GTK2, so the app crashed. I'll add a note to that wiki entry.

Oh, I had this same (or similar) problem after update from 3.0 to 3.1. Try:
1. remove this package
2. start lowriter then close
3. install this package
4. start libreoffice

Looks like bugs. I wonder if libreoffice-still has this same issue.

Works fine for me. Try oracle jre from aur. BTW. java uses its own gui toolkit.

After upgrading to Libreoffice 5, this extension (strictly speaking, its configuration dialog) stops working.

Libreoffice 5 switches to GTK3, while the plugin (or JRE?) is still using GTK2. When you try to open the configuration dialog of LanguageTool inside Libreoffice, the whole application will crash. In the terminal you can see error messages complaining not able to mix GTK 2 and GTK 3.

Wonder if there's any solution?
