Default unable to execute libreoffice

Hi All,
having problems with libreoffice now; this is the message I get when executing libreoffice:
$ libreoffice 
javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
Warning: failed to read path from javaldx
/usr/pkg/libreoffice- Shared object "libtiff.so.5" not found
besides this, everything working fine. Using NetBSD NetBSD-arriba 10.0_BETA NetBSD 10.0_BETA (GENERIC), and $ http://cdn.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/pac...0.0_2022Q4/All repositories.
Thanks for your help!

I do not use libreoffice, but I went to install it and I saw the dependencies and I said never mind.

Attached this is the list of dependencies pkgin(1) says it will pull in for me on 10.0-BETA.

Maybe check to see if your list agrees, but AFAIK, libreoffice does not need java.

Should work with most functionality, but some need java - might be graphing - long time since I've tried.

$ libreoffice
javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
Warning: failed to read path from javaldx
/usr/pkg/libreoffice- Shared object "libtiff.so.5" not found
Regarding the Java runtime environment; It is just a warning. To make it go away, install a JRE and set the java path under "options".


The libtiff.so.5 message is a second issue. It is likely libtiff was upgraded and the current soname is libtiff.so.6.

There are several ways to deal with this.

IMHO, the easiest to to use NetBSD 9.0 and the corresponding 2023Q2 packages. Another option is to to build ALL your packages from source. Mixing source and packages often produces out-of-sync sonames.
