Libreoffice 4.3.3 Java exceptions

(edgarklus) #1

My configuration:

Opensuse 13.2, OpenJDK 1.8, Libreoffice, Languagetool 2.7

The problem:

Since I have updated to Libreoffice, Languagetool does not work anymore. Nor can it be de-activated or removed and re-installed. Any attempt to do either triggers the following messages:

  1. javaloader error - could not find class com/sun/star/comp/loader/JavaLoader

and then:

  1. ( { { Message = "javaloader error - could not find class com/sun/star/comp/loader/JavaLoader", Context = ( @0 } }

I have tried OpenJDK 1.7 before, and the result was the same. I have tried a fresh install of Libreoffice, still the same result. What can be wrong here??? I have never had any problems with Languagetool and Libreoffice before.

Please try the Java you can download from Please make sure it's not only installed, but also activated in LibreOffice (Tools -> Options -> Advanced).

Thank you for the quick response. I have downloaded, installed and activated the recommended java-version. The result, unfortunately, is still the same. What puzzles me is that other addons to libreoffice which also require java work flawlessly.

I was struggling with the same issue.

The error message says that it can not find the class JavaLoader at runtime. Which was there during compile time. What I stupidly did is to search for a jar that contains this class and found this.

This archive can be easy added to the classpath in LibreOffice. But unfortunately, I received the next error:

( { { Message = "javaloader error - no mapping from java to C++ ", Context = ( @0 } }

At that point I gave up, removed all LibreOffice related RPMs and installed the ones from the LibreOffice web site. That helped finally.
