I've tried it without adding any OOo java stuff and it didn't work, it 
came up with an error message.

However I then installed the openoffice.org-java-common package which 
appears to install openjdk, restarted OOo and tried installing it and it 
at least installed.

I managed to export an Impress slide to JPG which worked okay.

Hope this helps.
