Hi :)
UbuntuStudio is a specialist distro that differs from 'vanilla' Ubuntu,
prinarily to make it easier to create art, music and other multimedia.  I
think it has Blender built-in, as an example.

Java is generally considered a security risk these days and almost all of
LibreOffice has rewritten almost all Java into C(++?) or Python or
something.  Sadly some add-ons/Extensions do still require it though.

Tom :)

I am wondering if the "default" open-source java is installed or some
other version.

-  openjdk-8-jre for amd64 [my install on Ubuntu/MATE 16.04LTS]

If I remember correctly, you may have several versions of java and choose
which one you want to run with LO.

I do not remember which version of LO is installed, by default, when I
upgraded from 15.10 to 16.04, but I currently run the version on
"this laptop".  I still have not upgraded my 6.25 TB [plus 6.0 TB USB
backup] main desktop from 14.04 to 16.04, since I am having issues sitting
at my desk.  I believe I was running a later version of 4.1.x or 4.2.x on

Hi :)
Can you check to see if Java is enabled within LibreOffice? Something

Tools - Options - Java or Advanced or something

There 'should be' a line telling you what  your machine and that line
should be ticked or bullet-pointed, or something.

I've just migrated the desktop from 14.04 to 16.04 and so my working
LibreOffice environment has changed overnight from to

First impressions are very positive and I've imported all my templates
into Writer and things seem to work fine.

Where I do have a problem is with a couple of extensions for Writer.
When I reloaded my extensions I found several of them were flagged up by
the LO website as 'not having been updated for over a year and maybe no
longer supported'. That was disappointing but I loaded the French
dictionaries anyway and they seem to be ok.

The 2 extensions that cause me a problem are :

Writer2xhtml - which I found very useful for exporting into ePUB format.
It has lots of adjustments that you can make. Not updated beyond LO 4

Language tool - also not updated beyond LO 4 series. I am not so
bothered by this one.

I installed both these two anyway to see what would happen. Neither can
be 'enabled' in the Extension Manager Tool and the error I get with both
of them is the same :

       "Could not create Java implementation loader"

This makes me wonder if the problem is within my new UbuntuStudio 16.04
support for Java rather than a problem with the extensions not having
been updated ?

Does anyone out there on this list have any ideas that could help ?

Thank you.
