Hi Henri :)
Thanks :)  I still think your idea is likely to be the winner, the idea
about switching to using the PPA rather than the upstream version.
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi :)
Java is notoriously unreliable with many intermittently and
situation-specific problems.  Sadly it's not the case that if it works in
one place that it can be relied on anywhere else.
It's quirky problematic nature is more like the problems with Flash,
only much worse.

​That Java causes quirky problems is, of course, certainly true - it's
just that it's not the first place I'd go looking for a solution to Mr
Cloud's problems. But in any event, it's easy to turn off and check - if
the problem disappears, it is solved (and we know the cause), if not, it's
easy to turn it on again and look elsewhere for solutions.... 😁


​Bruce's «idea»​, at least as expressed on this thread, but to anyone using
an Ubuntu derivative, like Mint, it certainly saves a lot of trouble. Only
disadvantage is that one has to wait for the PPA to be updated, but that
generally doesn't take more than a few days after the publication of a new
standard LO version....
