[Solved] JRE insallation problem

Postby Baasha » Thu Nov 08, 2012 2:09 am

I am running LO 3.5 on Ubuntu 12.04.

I understand that the 64 bit JRE is not recognized by LO, so I followed the fourm posts and installed the 1.6 version jre (32 bit) in the same main directory as the 64 bit JRE that comes with my system (usr/lib/jvm). However, LO still does not detect the 32 bit JRE. LO does detect the 64 bit JRE but Base can't use that according to what I have read.

Does anyone have any hints at what I may be doing wrong? I really need to get Base up and running.

Bob

That's not true on Linux: both LibO and AOO are true 64 bits apps on Linux so you can use the 64 bit java without problems. I'm using OpenOffice 64 bits + java 64 bits since OOo 3.0 ;)

@ RGB
Are you saying that Base works on your system? Both the LO and AOO forums contain posts that say that Base can not use the 64 bit JRE, and that we are advised to use the 32 bit JRE.

My problem remains, in that I can not get the program to recognize that the 32 bit JRE is there.

It's true under Windows because there is no 64bit version of AOO on Windows. But under GNU/Linux, there is a 64bit version of AOO, so you've to use the 64bit version of Java.
AOO 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 19.10 and 4.1.5 on Windows 10 (with winPenPack port).

@ Baasha: yes, Base is working here on my 64 bits system.

A 64 bits AOO will not recognize a 32 bits java in the same way a 32 bits app will not use a 64 bits java (the problem present on Windows were AOO is available only on 32 bits): if your system is 64 bits, install both, AOO and java on their 64 bits versions.

Ok, then I still have a problem. As you can see from the attached screenshots Base is grayed out and I do have the 64 bit JRE installed.

Where do I go from here?

Thx,

Assuming you have installed 64 bit LO, I suggest the hackneyed remedy of renaming your profile folder. Make sure no LO process is running first.

Also, be sure that Base is really installed on your ubuntu: is a tradition on this distro to not install base by default.

Thx RGB,
I never thought about Base not being part of the default installation. When Ubuntu originally went from Openoffice to LO Base worked, but I guess in the last update they dropped it from the default install.

Thanks to you, I now have my program up and running.
