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 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

After installing version 6.4 I see the following error from time to time:

java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot invoke "org.languagetool.openoffice.CacheIO.setDocumentPath(" because the return value of "org.languagetool.openoffice.SingleDocument.access$500(org.languagetool.openoffice.SingleDocument)" is null

Has this been seen anywhere else and is there a reason known? Edit: AFAICT this only happens on closing calc spreadsheets.

Here is a patch to update to 6.4, and to make the license SPDX compliant:

Sorry, I have fewer time lastly.. :(

Perhaps 3ED_0 stopped using Arch entirely? I sure hope he is ok, but he doesn't seem to have logged on in months, since the day this was last updated. I think an administrator should orphan this package.

@3ED_0: If you don't have the time to update, there surely is someone willing to take over if you orphan the package ;)

This should work:

depends=('libreoffice' 'java-runtime>=8')
optdepends=('jre8-openjdk: java 8 or greater is required')

package() {

Version 6.0 was released. Could you please update this?

medmedin commented on 2022-12-26 12:46 (UTC)

@3ED_0 Version 5.9 is out since 28/09/2022 is there any plan to update this package to it ? or is this package already abandoned ?
