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

mittens2001: probably you right :) thx

Btw. imho this should be mentioned in PKGBUILD wiki

mittens2001 commented on 2016-09-25 06:39

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?

brittyazel commented on 2016-04-10 23:27

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.
