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?

simgunz commented on 2016-01-31 16:19

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

Hexcles commented on 2015-10-05 23:37

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.

3ED_0 commented on 2015-10-05 08:57

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.

3ED_0 commented on 2015-10-05 07:21

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

Hexcles commented on 2015-10-05 04:30

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!

meerdan commented on 2015-02-07 17:30

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

dreadz commented on 2015-02-07 17:14

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?

Rhinoceros commented on 2015-02-04 22:43

libreoffice-still-common, which used to provide libreoffice-common, has been replaced by libreoffice-still, which provides libreoffice. Hence, libreoffice-extension-languagetool should just depend on libreoffice now.

jtts commented on 2013-04-05 21:38

I updated the package to version 2.1:

jtts commented on 2012-10-09 22:14

No problem!

3ED_0 commented on 2012-10-09 07:04

Sorry, I did not have access to a computer for a few days.

jtts commented on 2012-10-04 20:45

OK. I forgot to disable Lightproof and that's why I couldn't get it to work. So it at least works for me.

I updated the package to version 1.9.

I'm not sure if it'll actually work, so test first.

giniu commented on 2012-07-04 10:21

No problem :)

3ED_0 commented on 2012-07-04 10:18

done

tested, works fine

thx, giniu :)

giniu commented on 2012-07-04 09:39

sent you an email with differences in distributions of languagetool, I'm this version you submitted will not work with office.

3ED_0 commented on 2012-07-04 09:38

Oh sorry, I waiting for you and press enter.. :|

giniu commented on 2012-07-04 08:52

As of 1.8 the extension is distributed as separate file from the standalone version. I will keep the languagetool package the standalone version, so I believe you want to switch to using the other one.

3ED_0 commented on 2012-01-20 17:24

This package provide extra depend on libreoffice and linking content of `languagetool' package with libreoffice extensions directory. Please, considerate this as a metapackage..

gururise commented on 2012-01-19 19:38

After installing this extension, LibreOffice keeps freezing for me at 100% cpu usage once I start typing anything onscreen.

3ED_0 commented on 2011-08-08 23:09

SOA#1 but I can change the name.. :)

For me it was not working when it has a languagetool name (lowercase) but small compromise (my config has been deleted).. :)

In addition, I removed the file "install". I keep your word: "I will add it to optdepends together with vim plugin."

;)

giniu commented on 2011-08-08 21:10

I don't know if this is my setup, but names seems to be case sensitive. Right now, when you have LanguageTool as folder name, the extension manager tells me something like "error, cannot probe extension status". If I rename the extension to languagetool with all letters lowercase, it disappears. It reappears after renaming to LanguageTool.

Also, you might want to ask on list about the "wrong name" part that was raised there in topic I linked below. If situation with this package settles I will add it to optdepends together with vim plugin.

3ED_0 commented on 2011-08-08 19:55

giniu: I changed this immediately when I saw.. :)

08 Aug 2011 10:12:37: I know. I have libreoffice and installing this by extension manager is: stupid, larger package and uncomfortable.. :)

08 Aug 2011 10:24:09: I did as I mentioned earlier: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=15183 (Why now? Now I like your package..)

Cheers..

giniu commented on 2011-08-08 18:37

pkgbuild is better than description, how about:

?

giniu commented on 2011-08-08 10:24

Btw, I modified my package to contain only content of archive in /usr/share/languagetool, so you can easily link in your package with:

ln -s /usr/share/languagetool /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/extensions/languagetool

or something similar (I updated post-install message to reflect the recommended installation method). Then both people using languagetool with and without libreoffice will be able to benefit from easy installation that way.

giniu commented on 2011-08-08 10:12

Maybe just make this package depend on languagetool and symlink to where it is installed? Because you see - there are people using languagetool without libreoffice because it has nice gui and all. Maybe your package might be better as meta-package - requiring languagetool + libreoffice and creating symlink?

If you installed this before by extension manager:
- Open extension manager and click remove button for this extension.
- Done, now you have it

PS. Someone who delete this pkg from aur, why you do it? Maybe, we can fix it?
