Updated to Hardy yesterday. I'm getting JRE errors in Open Office, 

"OpenOffice.org requires a Java runtime enviornment (JRE) to perform the
task. The selected JRE is defective. Please select another version" 

I already have openoffice.org-java-common installed, version 1:2.4 in
usr/lib/openoffice (which is the solution given in the forums).

OO options shows Sun Java 1.6.0_06 , in usr/lib/jvm

So which should I be using? I remember when I first switched to Ubuntu,
I was using Dapper, and had to uninstall the Ubuntu JRE and install the
Sun JRE. Do I need to do this again?

One day I'll understand it all ....
