    This extension operates, but part of the interface of it is impossible to observe. Additionally, some of what it corrects is correct, because the dictionary of it is inadequate.

  • John Twenty 8 juin 2022 à 10:19 (Il y a 28 jours)

    This is absolutely one of the most useful extensions out there!!

  • ooonea.eth 14 mai 2022 à 15:36 (Il y a 52 jours)

    For me the best extension there is. I also use it on iPhone, in browsers and other applications. Super recommended.

    Please see https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112723 for "passive component registration".

    Don't get me wrong: LangaugeTool does what it says on the tin. Although some of the grammar suggestions might strike (especially) native speakers a bit as "pedantic grammar police", it works well in LO.
    Having said this, the LanguageTool devs should have another thought about the many different languages now packed by default in LT. It is certainly no exaggeration to state that 99% of LT users now are forced to hold multiple languages that they don't speak, use, nor need. However, the inclusion of all mentioned languages standard makes the application very large in size, and slows down its operation.
    So why not, following the basic practice, provide the central operating core, and let *the user* decide what languages they want/ need, thus increasing both size and making LT more nimble.

    To install the Windows version Oracle Java is needed.
    After install of the extension click the configure button.
    The button will respond after a few minutes, please wait for it. This is probably due to the compilation of the Java code. After the first use, it is very responsive and great for the Dutch language.

    Doesn't work at all.

    Made a whole account just to share that after installing it, it doesn't do anything. I can right click for a drop-down, which I then cannot use. Clicking any icons or the 'options' menu does nothing.

    Incredibly frustrating and disappointing.

  • John Joe 8 févr. 2022 à 11:46 (Il y a 5 mois)

    I have installed it into LibreOffice 7.3 (flatpak version). But the LT toolbar is completely unresponsive, including the "Options" button

  • Peter T 23 janv. 2022 à 18:39 (Il y a 5 mois)

    LT does not work for me at all. Neither the buttons nor the LanguageTool menu items respond in any way.

    Windows 10
    LibreOffice 7.1.8.1 x64
    AdoptOpenJDK 11.0.10
    LanguageTool 5.6

    Specially registered to write a review. Many people write that the extension doesn't work. Everything works fine, I checked it in 7 and 6 offices, but there is a problem of incompatibility with apprmor. The profiles used by the apparmor are not working by default.
    The solution for Ubuntu 20 is as follows:
    sudo apparmor_status | grep libre
    if you see any output here, then you need to delete the Libreoffice profiles for apparmor.

    sudo apparmor_parser -R /etc/apparmor.d/usr.lib.libreoffice.program.*

    Further, if you wish, you can delete files with profiles:
    sudo rm /etc/apparmor.d/usr.lib.libreoffice.program.*


    Специально зарегистрировался чтобы написать отзыв. Многие люди пишут, что расширение не работает. Все прекрасно работает я проверил в 7 и 6 офисе, но есть проблема не совместимости с apparmor. Профили которые использует apparmor не рабочие по умолчанию.

    Решение для Ubuntu 20 следующее:
    sudo apparmor_status | grep libre
    если здесь увидите какой-то вывод, то надо удалить профили Libreoffice для apparmor.

    sudo apparmor_parser -R /etc/apparmor.d/usr.lib.libreoffice.program.*

    Далее по желанию можете удалить файлы с профилями:
    sudo rm /etc/apparmor.d/usr.lib.libreoffice.program.*

      Hi Viktor,
      thank you very much for the posting. Could you post the line how to enable the profile again, if I don't want to use the extension. Is switching off apparmor for libreoffice not a security risk?
