I'm a new user on Mac OSX and have a problem on Writer. I appreciate
if anyone has an idea about this.

Problem phenomenon:
1. when I try to "Save as" a document (no matter what the format/file
name I use), it says "libreoffice requires a Java Runtime Envirionment
(JRE) to perform this task. Please install a JRE and restart
2. On "Preference" -> "LibreOffice" -> "Java" panel, there's no JRE
shown although I have some JREs installed(*1). And on the same panel,
I tried to add the path of JRE/Java but all the paths I've tried were
rejected saying "The folder you selected does not contain a Java
runtime environment. Please select a different folder"(*2).

- LibreOffice 3.3.0
- Mac OSX 10.6.4

*1 Proof of having Java installed
MyMac:bin user$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_22"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_22-b04-307-10M3261)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 17.1-b03-307, mixed mode)

*2 Paths tried (partially)
