[solved] java in OpenOffice.org
« on: June 18, 2012, 03:11:52 pm »
Hello.  I'm wondering how to set up java in OpenOffice.org.  I have the recent jre package installed (7u3-i586-1vl70), but I can't find it when I look for it.  When I go to Tools, Options, Java, it indicates that NO jre is installed.  Figuring it just needs some guidance, I press the Add button, and attempt to guide it to the java runtime environment that GSlapt reliably tells me is in fact installed.  However, in spite of my guidance, I cannot convince OpenOffice.org of the truth that I DO have jre installed (as reported to me by GSlapt).  I go to files such as /usr/java/jre1.7.0_03, but it still shows nothing.  So, what am I to do?

I solved this by installing an older version of jre (6u24-i586-1vl70).  After rebooting, OpenOffice.org found this one.  Why it couldn't find the newer versions I don't know.  But, since it works now, I'm not concerned.
