Will Language Tool work for new OpenOffice version 3.4.0?


(emailfetch) #1

Apache OpenOffice announced new version 3.4.0 on 08 May 2012.
Is the Language Tool compatible with the new version of OpenOffice?

I haven't tried it yet, but I assume it is. Let us know if you have
problems.

"I haven't tried it yet, but I assume it is. Let us know if you have problems."
Sorry, but it failed miserably. The installation also left behind
numerous file scraps that had to be manually deleted.
Please test Language Tool with this new version 3.4.0 of OpenOffice
and update the Language Tool so that it works properly. Note that
version OpenOffice 3.4.0 is the first version to be released through
Apache, rather than from Oracle. Therefore, it is not surprising that
there will be incompatibilities with extensions that previously
functioned correctly.

It works for me, just tried. There a long freeze (1 minute) on startup
though. It's a known problem but it's worse with Apache OO than with
LibreOffice. Please describe what exactly didn't work for you and what
operating system and what version of Java you are using.

Leider lässt sich die Version zwar problemlos installieren, aber die Extension arbeitet nicht unter von Apache.

Ich habe die Konfiguration UBUNTU 12/04 und OOO3.4

Unfortunately, the version installed without any problems though, but the extension does not work under Apache.

Thanks for the tip. Now, my OpenOffice has recovered and is playing with again.

It turns out that this longer freeze was because of Java 7 (instead of Java 6), not because of Apache OpenOffice.

operating system = Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3.

Java = 1.6.0_32 (which is the latest version available to me).

When I try to install the downloaded installation file named
"LanguageTool-stable.oxt",
I receive an error message in a window as follows:
"an error occurred during file opening"
and the installation halts.
I could send you a copy of the error message window, but
the forum apparently does not permit attachments.

Please advise.

You can try this command to get a more verbose error message that might
help or not:

unopkg add -v LanguageTool-stable.oxt

If you don't have anything important in your profile you could try deleting
that when OO isn't running at all (not the quick starter either). You can
see under Tools>Options>OpenOffice.org>Paths where your user profile is. In
any case you should make a backup of the data first, of course.
