Description

LanguageTool is a style and grammar proofreading software for English, French, German, and a lot of other languages. You can think of LanguageTool as a software to detect errors that a simple spell checker cannot detect, e.g. mixing up there/their, no/now etc. It can also detect some grammar mistakes.

Supported languages are: Asturian, Belarusian, Breton, Catalan, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, French, Galician, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Khmer, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Tamil, Ukrainian. Please note that the level of support differs a lot between languages.

If you have trouble with the installation, please see our checklist.

    Does not work on Libreoffice 7.1 with
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.10+9-suse-1.2-x8664)

    Did not work even after installing java from Java.com instead of using OpenJDK

    So far, so good.
    I did install JAVA from java.com and had no further issues. Guess the main issue is the use of openJDK versus Java.com

    OpenSuse TW, LT 5.2.2,
    LO:

    EN: It seems to be working alright, but just as Javier Rondon said, the only working version for LO 7.0+ is 4.1.

    I tried the latest LanguageTool (5.2.2), and even though I can install it just fine, the service cannot start inside LO, it gives me a "LanguageTool can not start" message popup.

    Hopefully, the next LO update will work with it, otherwise, I hope it can be fixed on LT's side.

    ES: Parece funcionar bien, pero como ya lo dijo Javier Rondon, la única versión que funciona para LO 7.0+ es la 4.1.

    Intenté con la última versión de LanguageTool (5.2.2), y aunque la pude instalar sin problemas, la extensión como tal no funciona en LO, me da como mensaje de error "LanguageTool can not start".

    Espero que la próxima actualización de LO funcione con LT, y si no, espero que se pueda arreglar en el lado de LT.

    La única versión que funciona es la 4.1, las otras no me funcionan el libre office 7 y 7.04.

    When using the LanguageTool LibreOffice Writer freezes. Needed to remove the extension to make it work well again.
    Running LibreOffice Version 7.0.3.1 on openSUSE Tumbleweed, Kernel Version 5.10.5, KDE Plasma 5.20.5

      We have more or less the same set-up, try by substituting the java versions.

      • Klaus-Dieter Fietze Feb 5, 2021, 10:49 AM (3 months ago)

        Thank you for your hint! It set me on the right track to fix the problem. In fact, I had ignored the asterisk on the website: https://languagetool.org/#plugins. It says that the add-on requires Java 8! So, I have installed “java-1_8_0-openjdk” from the openSUSE Tumbleweed repository. Then I have ticketed the right Java version in Tools – Options – Advanced – Java Options and have restarted LibreOffice. Now, it works like a charm without freezing any more. I am glad that I was not obliged to mix repositories because I made bad experience in the past.

    Extension freezes the system, the changes made are not saved. On time there was a Java error (LT version 5.1.3). Reason to remove the extension again.
    Besides the crashes the extension did the job for the Dutch language spelling an grammar as expected.
    Running Linux Mint 20 and LO Version: 6.4.6.2 - Build ID: 1:6.4.6-0ubuntu0.20.04.1

    Pisząc wierszem, dodatek na końcu każdego wersu sugeruje kropkę, co jest błędem i nonsensem.

  • Neil Dec 14, 2020, 12:27 PM (5 months ago)

    Does what it says on the tin. For some reason I could not find it with the search option on the extensions website. But the Language Tool website has a link.

  • Aghart Dec 12, 2020, 1:26 PM (5 months ago)

    Works as intended.
