Help installing LibreOffice 5.3
« on: April 22, 2017, 10:22:42 am »

Hi,

I tried installing LibreOffice 5.3 but it gave me this error.

javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
Warning: failed to read path from javaldx
/opt/libreoffice5.3/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libmergedlo.so: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

Please help.

Thanks,
Frank

Did it install? Can you start the program?

LibreOffice will complain if Java or IcedTea is not installed, but it's not absolutely necessary for the core features of LibreOffice.

It got installed but the error was still there. I tried installing Java but still didn't work.

I tried LO in VL 7.2 Beta and could not duplicate this error. Without a jre it does warn, but runs fine.

Please tell us what version of VL you are using.. 7.1? STD? 32 or 64 bit?
Did you install LO using gslapt?

If you require java in libreoffice install openjre from the repository and then logout and back in.
this will remove the following terminal error.

without jre you will get the following in terminal
user:$ libreoffice5.3
javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
Warning: failed to read path from javaldx

you can remove the first by unchecking use java in tools/ options/ advanced, in word or any.

I do not think there are many features that require java anymore as most were changed to python or some such.

As already mentioned the error is not an issue, however if your error is more complicated you may have a corruption issue somewhere. Please post the exact error along with nightfliers requests above
