I am having one heck of a time with LO Base 5.4. I am using LinuxMint 18.1 on a HP laptop g7(if this helps?). I The message I get is:

"The connection to the data source 'Video collection' could not be established. "The connection to the external data source could not be established. No SDBC drive was found for the URL 'sdbc: embedded:hsqldb'."*

What I have tried is reinstalling the Java-8 runtime to the newest. Please help. I have lost a database that was scrambled and corrupted the a writer doc.
