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.

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

I found the root cause of my problem. I was using a Java interface tweak from Arch Wiki (add "" 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?

Thanks meerdan, this helped!

There may be a nicer way, but I did this:
* Uninstall libreoffice-extension-languagetool
* Update
* Install libreoffice-extension-languagetool

Hi guys, when i try to update with "pacman -Syyu" i get the following:

"error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: libreoffice-extension-languagetool: requires libreoffice-common"

Any ideas how to fix it?
