Libreoffice Jre Required

I am trying to create my first macro with LibreOffice version 6.1.6.3 on a MacBook Pro running Mac OS X 10.14.5. When I select menu item 'Tools Macros Run Macro' I get this popup box: 'LibreOffice requires Oracle's Java Development Kit (JDK) on Mac OS X 10.10 or greater to perform this task. Please install them and restart LibreOffice.' However, the title of the popup box is 'JRE Required'.

  • Libreoffice Java Jre free download - Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (64-Bit), Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for Fedora (32-bit ), Duplicate Files Searcher, and many more programs.
  • @gabix There is a JRE for Mac OS X (current versions filename is jre-8u221-macosx-x64.dmg), but LibreOffice can't deal with that. Opaque ( 2019-07-19 22:23:56 +0200 ) edit I meant the current Java, not the old Java 8.
  • Java runtime environments (JRE) already installed: Select the JRE that you want to use. On some systems, you must wait a minute until the list gets populated. On some systems, you must restart LibreOffice to use your changed setting. The path to the JRE is displayed beneath the list box.
  • OpenOffice 4.1.7, LibreOffice 7.0.1.2 on Windows 7 Pro, Ultimate & Windows 10 Home (2004) If you believe your problem has been resolved, please go to your first post in this topic, click the Edit button and add Solved to the beginning of the Subject line.

Java is notably required for Base. Due to an issue, there are the following restrictions with Java: on macOS 10.10 and newer, JRE isn't found, JDK is required LibreOffice 4.3 can still run on OS X 10.6+, but please understand that this support ended when 4.3 was retired on May 27, 2015.

I found a potential answer to this problem in the question 'Mac Java problem when creating a database' but the detailed directions talk about installing the JDK. The error messages I got in the popup implied that I need both the JDK and the JRE.

When I install the JDK will I also get a copy of the JRE? What are the current instructions for installing the needed Oracle libraries if I want to use macros?

Thanks, bobby

Yes. As I understand, Oracle doesn’t provide a JRE alone. Sorry, I can’t give any other pointer as I don’t use Mac.

@gabix There is a JRE for Mac OS X (current versions filename is jre-8u221-macosx-x64.dmg), but LibreOffice can't deal with that.

I meant the current Java, not the old Java 8.

E-bot, why not repost it as an answer?

Since I work with Windows and not with Mac, I only saw it as an additional hint. And the question was already marked as solved. If it still helps, so much the better. Have all your joy in it.

I upgraded Java to Java 8. I upgraded OO to 4.1.3 (AOO413m1(Build:9783) - Rev. 1761381
Libreoffice base jre requiredSince then anytime I enter ' = ' to start typing a formula in Calc OO crashes with the following message:Libreoffice
'OpenOffice 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 - Java.'
then
' Could not create a JRE implementation loader' (fatal error)
then
OO closes entirely.
So,
1) I tried to get OO to recognize JRE but OO doesn't see my installed JRE (no version listed under 'Java runtime environment already installed'.
Libreoffice Jre Required2) I then click on 'Add' to find the path in C/ under which Java is installed but OO responds with 'The folder you selected does not contain a JRE... Pls select a different folder'. I am POSITIVE that I am pointing to the right folder - I see it in Windows Explorer.
3) I uninstalled Java 8 and reinstalled. Reboots in between.
Anyone knows why OO4.1.3 doesn't 'see' java.exe in the folder I point it to???
