screenshot with Java errors in languagetool

Good morning,

I just installed Linux Mint 19.1 with LibreOffice included, on my PC. Of course I did an update after that, so I should be reasonably up to date. Every time I open LibreOffice I get two Java errors, both in LanguageTool. The first starts with:"Java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: java/XML/bind/JAXBException" and the second starts with "Java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: could not initialize class org.languagetoo.Languages"

I add a screenshot.

I can live without languagetool (I think, what does it really do?) so no hurrry. Just because someone should bring this to your attention.

Thank you very much,

Jan Sepp

@Jan : the language tool extension is not installed by default, so you must have installed it yourself, for example, via an extra packet or downloading it from the extensions site.

If you installed this as a packet provided by Mint, then you should file a bug report with them.

If you installed this as an extension from the extensions website, then you should contact the author of the extension from the website.

As far as I can tell, this is a very similar, if not duplicate, report to bug 75051 (which concerned macOS, but the error you are reporting is the same).

The workaround is indicated in :
