Hi Macbook Pro 13inch without retina display. My os is 10.11.3 I have installed LO I downloaded and installed javaforosx.dmg and JavaForOSX.pkg I have also downloaded and installed jre-8u73-macosx-x64.dmg. Yet when i open LO and start creating database, i get an error message saying that LO needs jre ... please install it... or words to that effect.

Someone please guide me to the correct steps Thanks

In brief, you need to install a JRE that matches the bit-size of LO rather than (possibly) your OS. Next, select that JRE version (if not already selected) within LO.

Hi. Try LibreOffice -> Preferences -> LibreOffice -> Advanced -> select the Java version you've installed.
