From the OpenOffice main menu use: -Tools -> OpenOffice.org -> Java, and uncheck "Use a Java runtime environment". -However, we do recommend that you have a Java Runtime Environment on your system to take -full advantage of OpenOffice's features without any issues.

- -

Legacy versions of OpenOffice.org (3.3 and below) -included a JRE packaged with the download. The latest Apache OpenOffice 3.4 does not.

If you already have a JRE installed on your system in one of the standard areas for -Java installation, OpenOffice should detect this installation and let you choose it for use -in OpenOffice via the Tools-> OpenOffice.org -> Java. -If you have a JRE installed that is not detected, you should be able to add it through -this same menu.

- -

If you choose not to configure OpenOffice with Java (or just forgot -about it) you can easily install Java afterwards to get the missing -functionality to work.

The current version, Apache OpenOffice 3.4, has worked reliably in a variety of -environments using both Oracle Java and openJDK. -Feel free to download a JRE from either of these sites if you feel you need this functionality. -

- -

The current version, Apache OpenOffice 3.4, has reported problems with using the 32-bit JRE on 64-bit Windows 7 -systems. However, this problem can not be reproduced in all cases. Java 1.7 is the latest Java from Oracle. -

  1. Check to see if LibreOffice has re-routed the OpenOffice binary to itself instead.

    If this is symlinked to libreoffice, remove the symlink. (see your favorite reference for how to do this)

Packages for Linux Distributions (Not compiled by Apache OpenOffice developers)

+ +

The Linux downloads provided on the Apache OpenOffice site (mirrors) are generic for either the RPM- or DEB-based package +managers. If you have experience in directly installing these types of packages on your system, one of these types of +installs should work for you. They are not specific to a particular Linux distribution.

+ +

Many Linux distributions now include a version of Apache OpenOffice in their own native package manager format (.rpm, +.deb, etc.) either from their own repositories or community repositories which they support. These packages have been built +and are supported by the distributions' own teams or community members, not by Apache OpenOffice. Some distributions have +strict policies around licensing, which means they have chosen to disable parts of Apache OpenOffice which rely on software +which does not meet their criteria (e.g. the Fedora rpms have disabled the parts of Apache OpenOffice which require +Java).

+ +

Note: Please check carefully before using a third-party build that it does actually include all the parts of +Apache OpenOffice that you will require. Replacing a 'native' distribution build with the full Apache OpenOffice original +build can be tricky, but can usually be successfully accomplished by completely removing the existing 'native' install.
