I upgraded to LO 6 version.
I have to add Java connector class path,
add there new path to my file "mysql-connector-java-5.1.45.jar".
In previous versions this way works properly, but in sixth I restarted LO and
there is no any paths in OPTIONS->ADVANCED->CLASS PATH.
I added it again, restarted and just get the same clear list.
Can I write my path manually to some configuration file or put my jar file to some special folder?

P.S. Before this trouble happened, I reinstall my Ubuntu to SSD disk and then mount my old HOME folder from old HDD disk like a new HOME folder. (So I moved system to SSD and mount old HOME folder). May be there is some problem with access rights?

I completely removed LO6 (with -purge etc.) and install LO 5.4 and, the magic, my jar file was already added to class path. So I think there is some user profile file which saved from 5.4 version and after I upgraded to LO6 something went wrong.

But there is no Java in LO 5.4...

If you don't see Java, either an incorrect one is installed or Base doesn't know where it is (need to 'Add').

Having MySQL for a few years now, have not seen any problem as such. I have kept my .jar files (have a variety for testing) in a folder on my /home directory ('MySQL' folder is what I use - original huh?). Have been using in LO versions 4.x through without problem.

You may way to try resetting you user profile. See -> LibreOffice user profile. Something may have gone awry causing the problem.

Unfortunately, resetting user profile doesn't help. In safe mode I have the same problem.

Have no other thoughts on this. Probably best to file bug -> Bugzilla
