Tools->Options->OpenOffice->Java freezing on Linux x64

John D'Orazio
Can anyone confirm if this is a real problem or if it's just me? When
launching OpenOffice 4.1.8 x64 on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04), if I open
Tools->Options->OpenOffice->Java , instead of listing the JREs on my system
after a minute or so, the whole OpenOffice instance just freezes. I've
tried a number of times on two different computers, even leaving it for
over 10 minutes, but no luck, I had to "sudo pkill -f soffice".

On one instance I believe I had a default JDK 15 when I installed
OpenOffice 4.1.8 and I wanted to make sure that OpenOffice would instead
use JDK 11, but I couldn't change it from this menu item.
On the other instance I had JDK 11 as the active java version.

I am using OpenJDK in both instances, on WSL 2 on Windows 10.

I just installed AOO 4.1.8 on Ubuntu 18.04 (in VirtualBox).

AOO detects both OpenJDK 8 and OpenJDK 11 without problems.
I didn't test Java 15.

I doubt that anyone has tested AOO before on WSL2... ;-)
I am still on WSL and can not start GUI programs.

On WSL2 I start GUI programs by installing VcXSrv on Windows 10, and then
in my bash profile I put:
*export DISPLAY=$(awk '/nameserver / {print $2; exit}' /etc/resolv.conf
2>/dev/null):0*
In order to get the Italian keyboard to work I have to set these parameters
when setting up VcXSrv:
-xkbmodel pc105 -xkblayout it -xkbvariant winkeys

In any case I'm guessing this issue is probably due to the WSL2
environment, which is kind of mixed with the Windows environment (it
actually picks up the PATH environment variable from Windows!)

Good to know, I might try that on my business notebook and shock my
colleagues! ;-)

Maybe our detection code tries to find Java all the way down from
Windows root?
