First time here? Check out the FAQ!
I've searched the other answers but haven't found this exact issue. I must have done something silly or unusual, but in searching the web I can't figure out what.
If I open LibreOffice, occasionally the following message will pop up:
LibreOffice requires a Java runtime environment (JRE) to perform this task. Please install a JRE and restart LibreOffice.
Apple bundles Java with the OS, so I should already have a JRE. I have tried selecting numerous paths manually in Preferences -> General -> Java, but to no avail. Not sure what to try next.
The application works well enough, but I'd like to resolve this message and make sure it fully works.

Hi, I'm using LO 188.8.131.52 on OS X 10.8.3 and I'm having the same issue. Only, the message ("LibreOffice requires a Java runtime...") pops up so frequently that it's really disturbing my work. Things get even worse when I type in Japanese (I can't type more than 2 characters without having the message poping up). I didn't find a solution to this problem on forums: would anyone have an idea?
(Sorry, this is meant to be a comment, but I don't find the commmenting tool...)

May be just try to install the last Java runtime environment JRE
because Apple supplies their own version of Java. Use the Software Update feature (available on the Apple menu / Software Update...) to check that you have the most up-to-date version of Java for your Mac.
For mac it's actually the version 6 (if i remember)
