Description Petr Valach 2012-02-04 09:51:40 UTC

I just want to refer about some plugins for openoffice.org (but they could be used in older version of libreoffice too). They cannot be used in version 3.5. They are from Euroofice team and they weren´t publish for LO. But I think that problem is with LO 3.5, because they can be used in all versions of OOo and LO.

Hope that this problem will be solved before releasing of stable version.

Good luck.

Marking as NEEDINFO as there is no link to the plugin. Please link us to it so that we can try. Also, just because an extension works for OOo doesn't mean that it will work in LibO, our code has some differences and thus can result in this kind of a scenario. If the developer of the extension explicitly states they are making it for OOo, might be good to ask them to make sure it works on LibO as well.

No further feedback from bug reporter.

@Petr: If you are still able to reproduce this problem with LO 4, please provide a link to the plugin in question and re-open this bug, so this can be investigated.

OK, look at http://www.multiracio.com/index.php?lang=en&style=eurooffice&page=eo_ext and try some of their plugins. No-one is available for LibreOffice, only for AOO. I don't know where is problem (so I little think).

Thanks for link
I have downloaded extension EuroOffice_Formula_Converter.oxt , then renamed extension to zip and entered it. There is program on Python version 2. But this version is prohibited in LO 4. Only version 3 of Python is allowed. 

Changing status to NotOurBug because problem is in extension

Thank you for testing. Hope that we can use those plugins in future, after rewriting in Python 3.
