Description Richard Jasmin 2015-11-22 16:48:28 EST
Description of problem:
App complains when Java disabled(which apparently takes forever to load) within the application but for most often used tasks, java is not required, including to preload the application suite.

App complains anyways.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
once triggered, always

Steps to Reproduce:
Halt Java

The JRE in OpenOffice.org is the main culprit for the slow startups. You don't need the JRE to run in a day to day environment, so you can safely disable it, and in the event you do need the JRE you can quickly re-enable it. Simply head to Tools > Options > LiberOffice > Advanced. To disable the JRE simply uncheck the box next to Use A Java Runtime Environment.

Actual results:
Please enable Java......do you want to enable Java?

Expected results:
why are you complaining?

I do not understand your "Steps to Reproduce" and "Actual results."  You are presumably quoting text from somewhere, but it is unclear to me what and from where.

If LibreOffice complains during start up that Java is disabled, that most likely means that you have an extension installed that requires Java, and that due to how that extension is implemented it already wants to execute some of its Java code during start up.  Look into "Tools - Extensions..." and see if disabling specific extensions makes the problem go away.
