I am running the latest version of lion and have java sdk version 40 installed into /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk_1.7.0_40.jdk

However, when I select this folder or /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk_1.7.0_40.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/bin it tells me that there is no run time environment there.

Not sure why...

As far I can derivate from your "question" LibreOffice is telling you there is no run time environment? What if you go to LibreOffice > Preferences > LibreOffice > Advanced? Sometimes the problem is that there is no version selected in the available java list. Make sure the selection bullet is collored in the list and save your settings.

Did that solve your problem?

Kind regards,

Hi, thanks for the response. Nothing appears in that list. No runtimes are even listed. I know that they are there as I can find them and I compile and run my own java programs. When I try adding the folder with the java executable, libreoffice tells me that the folder has no runtime environments there.

Thanks. It solved my problem. Could not guess the key was hidden there!
