Description

LanguageTool is a style and grammar proofreading software for English, French, German, and a lot of other languages.

    The LT plugin is actually not working at all. LT appears in the menus, but clicking on the icons or the menu commands does not lead to any effect. I'm using LO 7.2.2.2 with LT 5.5.1 on Fedora Linux 35 (64-bit) with Gnome 41.1. The installed Java is standard OpenJDK 11.0.13.
    Clicking on LT options while LO runs in the terminal, the following code appears:
    java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel

    Probably this will help to identify the problem.

    In a previous post I stated I could never get this to work without random crashes of Writer. The problem seems to be solved when you install for all users. All remains very stable now. Now I can give it 5 stars!! Brilliant at what it does.

    This is another best, foreign language writing tool, Khmer Spell Checker out there beside SBBIC and it could spell khmer language just well!
    Thank you LT

    Since LanguageTool version 5.1.3 the update mechanism via Extension Manager does not work for me anymore. It might happen that other users are also stuck with this version now.
    (LibreOffice 7.1.6.2 x64, Windows 10)

    I would love to use this product which seems great BUT I have a large document of 400,000 words and every build I have tried to use would result in Writer crashing to desktop after 1 to 5 minutes. No warnings or errors - just instant closing of Writer. Memory use goes to around 3 to 4 Gb during the checking of the document and then the crash occurs. Windows 10 64 with 32 Gb RAM. Would also crash in Win 7 64.

    An update: as per the "our checklist" above, having a Mac I installed Java for OS X as suggested there (https://languagetooler.freshdesk.com/en/support/solutions/articles/44002037684-mac-specfic-issues), but only version 5.3 works without error messages.

    • D Oct 5, 2021, 3:09 PM (2 months ago)

      Update from myself. Unfortunately the error messages continue also with version 5.3

  • D Sep 29, 2021, 1:48 PM (2 months ago)

    New error message, I hope that the developers can help!
