Description Mike Kaganski 2018-10-06 13:55:04 UTC
If a Python-based extension is installed in LibreOffice, and JRE is disabled in Advanced options, an "Enable JRE?" warning is shown at LibreOffice startup.

As a Python-based extension example, you might try APSO [1]. Note that it might hand LibreOffice when tried to install first time. I had to kill soffice and re-run installation (without removing the incomplete installation) to successfully finish the installation.
