I am trying to start LanguageTool grammar checker from TexStudio on OS X 10.10.2. This is done defining in Preferences/Grammar the path to Java. I have installed the recent JRE8 but I don't know how to define the path to Java on this computer. I have been successful with this in Windows and other Mac (using simply java in the path).

  • Open the terminal and type whereis java. – Sigur Feb 14 '15 at 13:32
  • I got /usr/bin/java but it seems not to solve the problem of starting LanguageTool. Maybe what I need is the path to JRE and not to java. – sbac Feb 14 '15 at 15:47
  • Check inside /usr/lib. – Sigur Feb 14 '15 at 16:20
  • It does not work too. – sbac Feb 14 '15 at 19:08

I found it. The path for JRE8 in OSX is: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java.
