Thread: OpenOffice JRE issue

  1. OpenOffice JRE issue

    Hello all!

    Here's a printout a user put on my desk:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    OpenOffice.org requires a Java runtime environment (JRE) to perform
    this task. THe selected JRE is defective. Please select another
    version or install a new JRE and select it under Tools - Options -
    OpenOffice.org - Java.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Any idea when and why that would appear?

    We are running OpenOffice 2.0/2.1/2.2 on a variety of OpenSuSE 10.x
    machines.

    Thanks.

    Boris.

    Did you by chance try to open a .docx file? I recently opened a .docx file
    trying several ways of translating it, and got that dialog box. Then I
    discovered that Novell has a plugin to handle these new .docx documents.

    The next version of OpenOffice will already include the plugin, but if this
    is what you're dealing with, it's pretty easy to find the plugin at Novell.

    I don't even know what a .docx file is... No, I doubt the user what
    doing that when the problem occured.

    But thanks for your help anyways

    Boris.

    Something in 10.3 is preventing Java from working no matter what you do or
    which version you install. This is bad.

    Has anyone tried it with AppArmor turned off?

    Definitely! Personally, I feel that AppArmor and SELinux are both piles of
    crap and remind me of programs for Windows that give you a warm and fuzzy
    feeling about being more secure. More like a solution looking for a
    problem. They only make sense in environments where permissions need to
    change a lot for certain executables which sounds more like a server tool
    to me. I uninstalled AppArmor completely as well as Beagle related programs
    shortly after my 10.3 install. Beagle and the related programs sit there
    and thrash your drive constantly while building up index after index in
    your home directory. The db in /var with the locate program is plenty for
    me.

    Now, on the Java issue, I looked and it would appear that it affects GTK
    apps more than anything. Java actually DOES work for me in Konqueror. I
    found a response here about a fix that should be here very shortly.
