I installed the LanguageTool-standalone version and when I used it I have the following error:

Erreur détectée en traitant function <SNR>8_LanguageToolCheck :
ligne   32 :
Command [java -jar /home/bboissie/LanguageTool/LanguageTool-2.3/languagetool-com
mandline.jar -c utf-8 -d WHITESPACE_RULE,EN_QUOTES -l en --api /tmp/vvmyf28/6] f
ailed with error: 1

Could someone please help me? --October 23, 2013

It looks like a java installation problem, rather than a bug in the Vim plugin. Can you try to run LanguageTool from the command line using for example this command:

$ echo "This is is a test." |
  java -jar /home/bboissie/LanguageTool/LanguageTool-2.3/languagetool-com
mandline.jar -c utf-8 -l en-US -

If it works, LanguageTool in command line should detect here the consecutive word *is is* mistake. If not, what does it say?

You can also ask for help in the LanguageTool forum if needed at:
