Where is the JRE in Fedora Core 3?


(Running Fedora Core 3, and Open Office 1.1.2)

I thought I'd have a look at the snapshot of the Open Office 2 preview, so I've downloaded the tarball, extracted and installed the RPMs, and when I run Soffice, everything works. But it hasn't installed itself with Java. I know I can manually add the location of the JRE, and I know that the JRE exists because OO 1.1.2 has it - but where might it be?

Perplexed, Dave

There is an option somewhere to enable java features. I'll check exactly where it is the next time I am using Fedora Core with OO 2.

Ok, to enable java with openoffice.org 2, you have to start one of the programs e.g. oowriter then go to Tools -> Options -> JOpenoffice.org -> Java

Thanks for the replies:

I know how to go to the part in O O where I specify that Java is to be run, but it asks for a path to the JRE, and I cant' find the JRE in my file structure. I've looked in /usr/lib and /opt and the usual places; but there must be a JRE, as OO1.1.2 uses one (but I can't find out where it is).

Did you install java jdk or jre. If you installed the rpm from the sun java website, then java is in /usr/java.
