Description David Juran 2014-04-29 14:07:40 UTC
Description of problem:
After the latest update of java-1.7.0-openjdk, next time an excel spreadsheet was opened, LibreOffice complained that it couldn't find java and prompted me to go to Tools -> Options -> Advanced and there manually choose which JRE to use.
Better would be if it would auto-select one or maybe just use the system default one selected by "alternatives"

Comment 1 Stephan Bergmann 2014-05-08 12:02:56 UTC
At least with the java-1.8.0-openjdk I'm using on F-20, was able to reproduce a
leftover empty /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk- dir tree skeleton when the current version's already /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-, and the leftover dir would have fooled LO.  Assume that's also the problem with the java-1.7.0-openjdk update.
