Larry,

I am not a Mac user.

But for an Intel version of AOO you will need an *Intel* version of JAVA.

So please try to install it (the recommended versions are still 8 and 
11, both LTS):

Be sure to activate it in AOO after install.

Regards,

As more and more Apple computers with M1, M2 processors become part

to turn to LibreOffice (and quietly so).


To be clear, this is not about an Arm version of AOO, but to inform 
our users that the existing Intel version runs perfectly (via Rosetta 
2) on an M1, M2,... CPU.



Wrong. Database does not work. Keep getting messages "JRE is 
defective" and "No Java installation could be found". I just upgraded 
to  JRE 22.0.1 (jdk-22_macos-aarch64_ 
<https://download.oracle.com/java/22/latest/jdk-22_macos-aarch64_bin.dmg>). 
on MacBook Air M1. Earlier versions of java did not work either. Have 
not been able to use Database since I got new MacBook in 2021





But nobody seems to be interested in giving our users this information.

That said: I am not going to do that either. There are enough people 
that could start contributing NOW!

Hello,
I have been trying to install Open Office on my most recent MacBook

work on this computer. Or at least I could not find it to download.

DO you have any information on this topic?
Thank you

The "Platform Hints" section for macOS needs to be updated for a 
along time. (Coming soon...)


Any volunteer?
