Thread: Libreoffice 'JRE is defective' message

  1. #1

    Default Libreoffice 'JRE is defective' message

    I have the Sun JRE installed using the opensuse packages:
    Code:
    java-1_6_0-sun-1.6.0.u24-1.2.1.x86_64
    java-1_6_0-sun-plugin-1.6.0.u24-1.2.1.x86_64
    however every time I start Libreoffice I get an error message:

    If I go into Tools->OPtions->Java I can see the Sun JRE is installed and 'Use a Java runtime environment' is ticked.

    Anyone know how to stop this error message?

    (opensuse 11.4 x86_64)

    mine is ticked also, but just under the tick says: "Java runtime
    environments (JRE) already installed:" and the window below lists "Sun
    Microsystems Inc. 1.6.0_24"

    how did you install LibreOffice and Sun's JRE?

    i ask because i installed *both* using YaST and get no warning...so i
    _guess_ maybe you installed one or the other from source (?) or rpm
    fetched from some spot other than
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.x/
    (or whichever it is that usually supplies Sun Java)..

    and in doing so the needed link between the two was not made..

    i do not know the easiest way to link them, perhaps another here
    does...if not, it _might_ work to use YaST to install the one(s)from
    the repos which were previously installed from another source..

    *if* install from another source was used.....if not, i guess you
    either have a permissions problem or have found a bug that should be
    reported..

    I have this same problem. My copy of Libreoffice was installed when I installed 11.4. My java (java-1_6_0-sun - Java(TM) 6 Runtime Environment) through yast.
    It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

    Mine says the same and is also ticked

    how did you install LibreOffice and Sun's JRE?
    Libreoffice was installed by the installer when I installed 11.4. I installed Sun's JRE through yast/zypper with the follow commands:
    Code:
    sudo zypper in java-sun
    sudo zypper rm java-1_6_0-openjdk-plugin java-1_6_0-openjdk
    sudo zypper in java-1_6_0-sun-plugin
    The only repositories I have enabled are the standard ones (oss, non-oss, updates) and packman.

    then it looks like you two need to file a bug report because
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_24-b07) and
    LibreOffice 3.3.2 OOO330m19 (Build:202) tag libreoffice-3.3.2.2

    gives no problem here on fully updated openSUSE 11.3 + KDE4.5.5

    as far as i can tell you two are on 11.4, at least one on 64 bit and
    at least one using KDE4.6--other similarities and opaque here, but
    should not be in your bug report, begin here please:
    http://en.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bug_Reports

    and, after submitted please come back here and paste in a link to the
    bug (so others that follow in via Google/etc find the path to add
    their info to the bug report..

    note: the first step in submitting a bug is looking to see if the bug
    is already reported...don't skip that step, instead post your new info
    to the existing report...the more who post the more is known and the
    faster the fix/workaround is out...

    I mentioned I was using 11.4, anyway the bug report is now filed: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=683054

    Dwarfer99 can you add a comment to this - bug reports with only one person often get ignored by the Opensuse developers unfortunately

    I got rid of the problem by (effectively) doing the opposite to you -
    replacing the SUN java with openjdk - though LibreOffice still reports
    Sun Microsystems in the JAVA box :-)

    Under Java Options --> Use a Java runtime environment

    You must click on the circle to the left of Sun Microsystems Inc. so that a black dot appears in the circle.

    Restart LibreOffice and the message disappears. However, this is a bug.

    since all was ok here (on 11.3) i had hoped to find both of you on
    11.4, but i looked and i didn't see a version number on one...BUT, now
    i went back and looked, and in fact BOTH of you said 11.4 (i have no
    idea which it was that i didn't see the version listed on when i
    looked the first time--but, sorry to both!! my mistake)..

    Romanator,
    Thanks for the tip. I had looked at the Java Options box, but overlooked the dot needing to be clicked. On my screen, only about 3/4 of the dot shows; the rest is covered by a blue bar.
    Once I clicked the dot and restarted LibreOffice, no more error message.
    Regards,
    Howard
