Description Conor Reese 2014-10-31 02:07:29 UTC
Problem description: At launch, error window is generated that says "To view web content, you need to install the Java Runtime Environment. // Click "More Info..." to visit the website for the Java Runtime Environment. Recently installed JRE 8 and oracle.com verifies JRE 8 is enabled. /system/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines is empty so I am unable to add new JRE.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch LibreOffice
  > Error


1. Launch LibreOffice
2. Click LibreOffice menu
3. Select Preferences
4. Select LibreOffice > Advanced
  > no JRE listed
5. Select Add...
6. GoTo System > Library > Java > JavaVirtualMachines
  > Directory is empty
7. Click Cancel
8. Click OK
  > Error
