I suppose this is really a LibreOffice problem but I’m wondering if anyone has had problems with it recently. This morning Libreoffice Writer was working fine; odt files opening and reading ok. There was a Zorin update today that I downloaded. This evening, I received a docx file from a friend via email, which I was expecting; so I saved it to my desktop and then tried to open it.
LibreOffice Writer began to open up then stopped and presented me with a little white box with an X in it. Having closed it, I then tried to open some of my other odt files…and they all did the same thing. I can’t open the application now or read any of my odt files in it. This is only affecting Writer.
Having hunted around a bit, I discovered the command line for starting up LibreOffice Writer; and this is what the terminal produced:
javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
Please ensure that a JVM and the package libreoffice-java-common
If it is already installed then try removing ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/config/javasettings_Linux_*.xml
Warning: failed to read path from javaldx
I have to say that all the LibreOffice packages came with my Zorin Ultimate 15 and I haven’t fiddled with them at all since I installed the OS.
With regard to the terminal message, where would I find libreoffice-java-common? so that I can check whether it is present or not. Secondly, where would I find the other .config libreoffice file mentioned?
