Sub_title: I have installed versions of JRE but Openoffice Database can't find them
 

Using Puppy Precise from a USB thumb drive.

I have installed open office versions 3.2 and 3.3.0 SFS in combination with jre1-7.0-17.sfs or jre-1.6.0.20.pet and Base continues to state that I need to install jre...

Help - please

Earl

If you look in the openoffice preferences you should be able to tell it where to find java. Have you done that?
From memory I think you direct it to the Java bin directory and then it identifies the java install, telling you the version etc.

Just a suggestion: you can use OpenOffice 3.4.1 (DEB packages)

I have sfs'd java 1.7.0_17, but when I go into OpenOffice.org Calc and look in "tools", "options", "openoffice.org" "java" it is still blank...

@ disciple - I could not find "openoffice preferences" so this is why I am at the above location(s).

@boxR I'm having enough problems trying to get 3.3 to do what I want Crying or Very sad treying to load a deb was a problem for me it was in a tar ball and unlike a zip file there was no readme file to guide the blind. Also it link sent me to a newer version so sitting in the wings on my drive is 3.4.1 and 4.0.1

That's where I mean. But there should be a button or something there to tell it where to look for Java. On other operating systems I think Java is detected automatically, and the intention of it is mainly so you can choose which Java to use when you have more than one installed. But on Puppy I think I've always had to tell it where to look for Java.

@ disciple - I guess my problem is I don't know where Java is, so when I go to the "ADD" it is not obvious where to go next. How do I find where SFS put Jave - an old newbee

You can download both OpenOffice and Java here :
http://sourceforge.net/projects/asriedu/files/asriedu_packages/asriedu_packages_30x_base_puppylucid52x/

If you have still problem, try to delete this file :
    /root/.config/.openoffice/4/user/config/javasettings_Linux_x86.xml

Would this be in english? the files all seem to have .fr. in them.

I assume that I would have to remove my present ooo 3.3 and jre before loading the newer files also.

Thanks for your responce

Followup, I got a copy of jre-1.7u25-i586.sfs.zip and LibreOffice-4.1.2_es_xz.sfs, This combination works! so far...
