Breton Grammar Checker


(cornubian) #1

Hello all,

I use Ubuntu and LibreOffice. I've tried to install the Breton Language Grammar Checker Extension ( http://www.languagetool.org/br/ ) but when I try to enable it in LibreOffice I get a box that pops up full of, what is for me, incomprehensible code. In the box Jave is mentioned a lot and an 'UNO exception occurred' is also written. I've installed the version of Jave that was recommended for Ubuntu but this has changed nothing.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Have you also installed the package libreoffice-java-common, as suggested at
http://www.languagetool.org/issues/?

Hello Daniel,

Thanks for the quick reply. You link led me to this blog: http://nancib.wordpress.com/2008/05/03/fixing-the-openofficeorg-grammar-glitch-in-ubuntu-hardy/ Yes indeed it seems the person who wrote that blog has found the solution. He/she writes:

Simply install the missing package either in Synaptic or enter the following command in Terminal

sudo apt-get install openoffice.org-java-common

entering your administrator password when prompted for it. Then simply fire up OpenOffice.org once the installation is >done and you can use your grammar checker in OpenOffice.org.

The only problem is that a total novice such as myself has no idea what he/she is talking about. Where do I find the 'missing package'? Or how do I enter the command in terminal? Where is terminal? Will 'openoffice.org-java-common', whatever it is, work for LibreOffice? Sorry to be stupid but I console myself with the knowledge that I'm not alone. :wink:

There's a software center (not sure what's its exact name) in Ubuntu where
you can install the software that Ubuntu packages for you. Just search for
"libreoffice-java-common" (not openoffice.org-java-common) there and install
it, then exit LibreOffice if it's running and try again to install
LanguageTool.

Thanks again Daniel. After rooting around a little I seem to have solved the problem. Many thanks.

On Ubuntu, you can access the terminal with the shortcut CTRL-ALT-T
(at least this works with my Ubuntu-10.04).

You can then install packages by typing the command in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install libreoffice-java-common sun-java6-jre

This will automatically download and install the specified
packages, and won't do anything if packages are already installed.

Chañs vat deoc'h! :smile:
