Heh. I remember you have been using latest daily builds of master toward 6.4 - and that problem should not have been there - I thought I have fixed that (already in 6.2: see so - please file a new bug for that, with specific steps, because JRE is definitely not needed for Python scripts, and the warning only means there's a kind of bug in the process of searching for the script engine.

Please don't forget to mention the bug # here, and - also add me to CC list in the bug itself (because currently this site's notification system is broken, and I likely will not receive a notification when you add the # here). Thank you!

In my office, every notebook is installed all the same - Fedora 30 Workstation KDE from Fedora Spins and LO Before I will report the bug, I tried to uninstall LO and reinstall Version: Build ID: 1ec314fa52f458adc18c4f025c545a4e8b22c159 CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.1; UI render: default; VCL: kde5; Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US Calc: threaded.

The message box 'JRE Required' as shown above still shows.

Fixed for 6.4. Will be available in dailies tomorrow (if nothing breaks dailies: it happens).

Thanks for spotting this; obviously there are more places affected by this than I imagined. If you find similar cases, please file new reports, and CC me there. Thank you!

Today I learned creating new menu linking with BASIC Macro for the first time, such warning message popped up again after clicking to select a Sub. Will this be fixed also in 6.4.x.x as you mentioned above ?

Menu bar | Tools > Customize

Menus Tab | Scope > file1.ods


New menu pop up | Menu name > New Menu 1 > ok

Menus tab | Category > Macros

Such message shows immediately after clicking Macros.

What is "Add"? There's no such button or label or anything on that tab
