As I understand it, the Java 7 visible.
It seems to be in the dependencies java-runtime>=7 ?

Try to open the letter wizard, if it works then java detection is fine. If it doesn't detect openjdk6 try to use a clean user profile.

libreoffice-common has no strict dependency on java ver7. only on java-runtime.

I tried a new clean user profile. The letter wizard does not work.

I built the package (through the makepkg, nothing changing in PKGBUILD from extra) on my system. Java 6 is now visible.

Have you built it with OpenJDK6 or OpenJDK7 (that is pulled in as first one in our repos providing java-environment and used by me).

Can you recheck the official pkg if it now detects your jre?

I built libreoffice with OpenJDK6.

I rechecked the official pkg - no detection openjdk6.

After returning to the rebuilded package - openjdk6 is visible.

Is this still a problem?
Comment by Askhat Bakarov (sirocco) - Saturday, 17 November 2012, 06:47 GMT
Absolutely the same behavior with LibO 3.6.3-1.
