    Can confirm what’s been said so far.
    With
    - MacOS Big Sur 11.4
    - Oracle JDK 12.0.2
    the last working Language Tool Version is 4.x.

    With 5.x, LT just sits there in the menu. You can click on anything you like and it doesn’t do a thing. No error messages, no nothing.

    • J. Martin Sep 26, 2021, 3:13 AM (4 months ago)

      Sorry, forgot the LibreOffice version:
      - LibreOffice 7.2.1.2

    At first, I couldn't get it to work at all. I didn't get any error message whatsoever (such as: wrong Java, wrong LibreOffice version, problem installing LT etc). Installing a different version of Java didn't help. After removing and re-installing LT, I was able to make it work.

    The absolute best

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

  • Qaz Cetelic Feb 10, 2021, 9:06 PM (12 months ago)

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

  • Hugo Oosterkamp Feb 3, 2021, 2:05 PM (12 months ago)

    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:

    Build ID: 00(Build:1)
    CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.10; UI render: default; VCL: kf5

    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.
