Libreoffice base "No Java installation could be found"

Hi all

Having a problem with libreoffice base (the database application), it launches fine, but when I go to work with a database it throws an error "The connection to data source 'dbtest' could not be established. No Java installation could be found".

I've tried changing ownership of .config folder to myself as recommended in another thread, reinstalling OpenJDK. No effect.

Anybody have any ideas?

Arch Linux i686, with Gnome Shell,.

Are you running OpenJDK 6, or 7? LibreOffice 3.6.x appears to have dropped support for version 6.

Why do you say that? Upstream still supports java ver.5 and we configure with         --with-java-target-version=1.5 \

If OpenJDK6 is not properly detected it's a bug. Probably an upstream issue. I didn't make any related changes in our PKGBUILD.

The bug is already open.  https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/31812

Thanks for the replies folks, I suppose I'll upgrade to OpenJDK 7

There are also the jdk-compat packages in the AUR, which apparently allow you to have multiple versions on the same machine.  But I have not tried the OpenJDK versions.
