I am trying to use LibreOffice on a macbook with the latest version of OS X. I have installed the Oracle Java JDK-15 file properly. However the software will not create a database. I have gone to Preferences and made sure that the JRE is active. I have verified that the location of the JDK-15 file is in the correct location. What do I need to do to make the Database program work properly???
First, have you checked to make sure the JDK is actually installed and selected in the LO PREFERENCES>Advanced menu? The Java Options List should show the Oracle Corporation JDK version number and the selection button on the left must show a small dot in its centre (to show it is actually selected). If there is no dot it is NOT selected and so you must click on it to select. Then click on the OK button on the bottom left of the Options-Advanced window. Quit LO and restart.
If the above does not work, maybe you are experiencing a bug. What version of LO are you using? Look at the below TWO bug reports and advise us if either seems to describe your problem or even suggests a solution:
PLEASE NOTE: LO requires JDK on Mac OS. You can’t use JRE.
Here is the error. I am getting.
I am sorry to do three posts however the system for some reason does not allow for more than one picture in one post - as I am a new user… does not help either.
Which system do you use?
mac OS Big Sur
Did you read: Mac requires the whole Jave Developement Kit (JDK), not even Java Runtime Environment (JRE)?
thank you, I will look at that.
